Help End Endo!

March is the International Month of Endometriosis Awareness. Inline with this the Rotary Club of Concord is hosting a High Tea on the 28th March 2021 at Organica Cafe, 43 Majors Bay Road, Concord from 3:30 pm.

Our aim is to raise funds and awareness for Endometriosis Australia whilst enjoying delicious food and company.  Endometriosis Australia endeavours to increase recognition of endometriosis, provide endometriosis education programs, and help fund endometriosis research.

Endometriosis or Endo is a common disease affecting more than 1 in 10 women at some stage in their lives. That's over 830,000 women in Australia alone. Worldwide 176 million women suffer from endometriosis. It is a disease that can begin in the teenage years and can lead to infertility.

There is a delay in diagnosis of between 7 and 12 years. This is due to girls and *women normalising symptoms due to the social norms relating to menstrual health. Doctors also normalise symptoms when women do finally seek medical assistance. Early diagnosis and treatment reduce the long term impacts of endometriosis and frequency of invasive treatments and fertility treatments.  Endometriosis has a larger impact than just a bad period; it can impact on every aspect of a *woman’s life without any definite answers. Raising awareness is the first step to reducing the delay in diagnosis across all age groups. Education about menstrual health, what is normal and what is not is vital in younger age groups to break the current cycle of delay in diagnosis and flow on effects for the next generation (Ballard, K., Lowtan, K., Wright, J. 2006 & Dessole, M., Benedetto Melis, G., Angioni, S., 2012)
Endometriosis Australia
*Endometriosis Australia acknowledges individuals in the transgender community and people who are non-binary and living with endometriosis who may not identify as women

So please join us to learn more about this disease and what can be done.  A glass of bubbly will be provided on arrival, there will be fine food, a selection of teas & coffee, excellent company and great raffle prizes to win!
