Did You Know It Takes 8 -12 Years To Get A Proper Diagnosis For Endometriosis? Fertility Friday


This weekend we’re sharing an episode from Fertility Friday’s new FAMM Practitioner Series, which features practitioner Brittany Cornish. Brittany shares her personal experience dealing with endometriosis as well as many incredible insights about getting the support she needed to address it.

Given that it takes an average of 8 to 12 years for the average woman with endometriosis to get a proper diagnosis, it makes sense that it can be difficult getting the support you’re looking for.

Most women who seek traditional medical care for endometriosis related issues are given one or more of the following options:

  • straight-up gaslighting (i.e. your periods couldn’t possibly be that painful)
  • hormonal contraceptives
  • pain medications
  • surgery

Other than the gaslighting option, the medical options listed can be extremely helpful with symptom management, but most of the women Fertility Friday Lisa Hendrickson-Jack works with want real solutions that address the root cause of the problem.
