Birmingham City University has an academic available to comment on the challenges women with endometriosis face, following the news that women with endometriosis feel they are ‘finally being believed’.

Dr Annalise Weckesser, Senior Research Fellow at Birmingham City University said: “The news that women living with endometriosis feel that they are finally being believed and listened to through the creation of the All Party Parliamentary Group is promising. 

“Women currently face a 7 - 10 year journey to diagnosis.  Our research shows that many such women also face an additional battle in finding and receiving adequate treatment to manage their endometriosis symptoms.

“On the 26 and 27 March, we will be holding the UK’s first social research symposium on endometriosis in Birmingham, marking a possible shift in endometriosis awareness.”
