A Tribute to the #EndoSisters and #EndoWarriors

With March being Endometriosis Awareness Month, we will share stories of women who have lived with endometriosis, in the hope of helping us understand why this should not be dismissed as “normal”.

Even as we marked International Women’s Day this week, scores of women suffer in silence, often times not knowing that the cause of their intense pain may be endometriosis.

Many of our mothers, sisters, friends, wives, fiancees, girlfriends are forced to endure unimaginable pain, in part because we may not understand what the issue is, therefore dismissing it as “normal”.
But as Esther Mbugua-Kimemia says, painful periods are not normal. Pain is a sign that there is something wrong in the body – and painful periods are not an exception to that rule.

As a society around these women, including the men in the lives of #EndoSisters, learning more about this may be the first step towards alleviating the pain of endometriosis.
