Endometriosis and Adenomyosis Society

Our society was established in 2009 by physicians to inform the patients, relatives of the patients, and other physicians about this disease and associated problems. With our effort, we aim to lessen the detrimental effects of endometriosis in the future, which currently affects every one out of ten women within the reproductive age.
 Endometriosis is a chronic disease with symptoms, mainly pain and has no definitive treatment at the moment. It takes an average of 8 to 10 years to diagnose. This disease and the associated symptoms effect not only the patient and the patient’s daily life, but also patient’s close friends and relatives. It prevents the patient to have a normal daily life, a healthy psychological state, a healthy private life and it also effects patient’s economic situation. This is due to the fact that this disease and its side effects consume a lot of energy. Each patient has a different experience with the disease. Some experience excruciating menstruation pain while others complain f fertility problems.
 The aims of our society in order to improve our patients’ lives;

  • To lessen the effects of the disease and to improve quality of life of the patients with endometriosis
  • To guide women with endometriosis to receive correct information, treatment and necessary support
  • To inform women on the etiology, the stages, the associated symptoms and the treatment methods of this disease and help them fully understand their situation
  • To guide women to overcome the negative effects of this disease
  • To reach out to the patients and their relatives and physicians, and increase their awareness of this disease while providing them reliable resources
  • Share actual and up-to-date information and resources about this disease
  • Work in a transparent and supportive environment
