At the heart of this meeting was a campaign initiated by The Endometriosis Foundation in March 2023, shedding light on the multifaceted challenges confronting individuals living with endometriosis, particularly regarding their fertility.


The campaign aimed to highlight the diverse experiences of those living with endometriosis-related fertility concerns, giving a voice to individuals concerned about their reproductive future and those who find themselves involuntarily childless due to the condition.

The Endometriosis Foundation remains steadfast in its commitment to advocate and lobby for the prioritisation of fertility issues among individuals with endometriosis. Through collaborative efforts and unwavering dedication, we aspire to break barriers and pave the way for a future where fertility rights are upheld and respected for all individuals affected by endometriosis.
