Did you know endometriosis is a body wide disease?

   Do you, or someone you know, have endometriosis in locations outside of the reproductive tissues?

Can you recognize presentations of endometriosis in various locations of the body?

Endometriosis has been traditionally labelled a disease of the female reproductive system, with active disease limited to the child-bearing years associated with menstruation.  The disease is far more extensive within the body and across age, fertility and biological sex.

Endometriosis can involve many other areas of a woman’s body. It has also been identified among cis-men, transgender males, and women born without a uterus.  Active disease has also been identified in persons after post-surgical hysterectomy, with/without oophorectomy, post-surgical and natural menopause. The disease has been identified in female fetuses.  One of the purposes of Extrapelvic Not Rare is to assist in redefining endometriosis as a body wide, inflammatory condition in which lesions similar, but not identical to uterus tissue, is located in areas outside of the uterus and is NOT confined to female reproductive organs and tissues.

Endometriosis is a disease which remains under recognized, under funded and under investigated. As a result there are many myths, stigmas, misinformation and ‘taboos’ associated with the disease. We join many other like-minded advocates and organizations to remove these barriers as they pertain to awareness, education, diagnosis and treatment for endometriosis.  Our Mission is specific on the area of disease that occurs outside the reproductive system and the necessity to integrate ALL disease, bodywide, into all conversation about endometriosis.
