Endometriosis: Group Organizes Virtual Event To Raise Awareness.

 Endometriosis is a painful, debilitating and chronic condition that affects women during their reproductive years.

 It occurs when uterine-lining tissue is found growing outside of the uterus, typically resulting in immense pain during and between periods, heavy and long menstrual cycles, gastrointestinal upsets, fatigue and in some cases, infertility.

There is currently no cure for endometriosis and its symptoms can be difficult to manage.

Averagely, it takes around 10 years for women to receive a proper diagnosis of endometriosis because of the lack of knowledge among the general population and medical world. Knowing the symptoms of endometriosis could help women determine if they are suffering from the disease; however, many women are unaware of all the key symptoms.

In light of this, the Endometriosis Support Group of Nigeria (ESGN), a non-profit organization committed to raising awareness about endometriosis, is organizing a first of its kind virtual event as part of their annual events to help end the silence around endometriosis.

The virtual event tagged Sisters’ Converge: An Endometriosis Conversation, will feature notable dignitaries, medical experts and endometriosis sufferers coming together to raise awareness and discuss the impact of endometriosis on the life of the Nigerian woman.

Some of the notable speakers include;
 Her Excellency, Dr Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu (First Lady of Lagos State), 

Professor Isaac Adewole (Former Vice Chancellor of University of Ibadan & Former Minister of Health), 

Dr Abayomi Ajayi, (Convener Endometriosis support group Nigeria & MD/CEO Fertility Centre)

The virtual event is scheduled to take place on Monday, 8th March 2021 and will be broadcast live on ZOOM and the official Facebook page of ESGN (

Attendance to the event is FREE. To register, visit

  1. Nice one, but what about those that are not on social media, how will they be enlightened. I wish they'll take this awareness/enlightenment to the grassroot, rural areas.

    1. Or even WhatsApp to be honest. This Instagram or Twitter stuff isn't working. People need a WhatsApp group for something like this where people can really share their opinions,fears,challenges and really interact with those that have had such experiences or those that can help as well.
