Endometriosis is an inflammatory condition that can affect a woman's whole body including the development of scar tissue around the internal organs (especially those in the pelvic region), including places such as the intestines, abdomen, bladder, kidneys, lungs and more.
Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women worldwide
Endometriosis can have a significant impact on a woman’s life in a number of ways, including:
There is no cure for Endometriosis, but there are treatment options aimed at improving your quality of life.
Endometriosis can be very difficult to live with as it can impact every aspect of one's life.
Endo Connect LA is a volunteer driven organization whose mission is to strengthen connections, support and education of women living with Endometriosis in the Los Angeles area. We offer face-to-face opportunities for Endo Warriors (and their loved ones) to come together for fellowship, fun and educational experiences.
Choose to live a fulfilling life even with Endo! Wellness is more than being free from illness: it is a process of change and growth towards a mentally, spiritually, socially and physically healthy lifestyle.
In order to live a higher quality life, maintaining optimal wellness is key. This can be extremely difficult with Endometriosis. Everything we feel and do can directly affect our actions, emotions and PAIN. In order to reduce stress, steady illness, and ensure positive moments in our lives, we must purposefully work at it. We can be works in progress together!
I’ve lived with Endometriosis for over 30 years but I was officially diagnosed almost 4 years ago. I’ve lost a lot in this war (time, body parts, loved ones, career opportunities, etc.) but I’m determined to be victorious and not allow it to destroy my joy. Endo has provided me the opportunity to live my BEST life with renewed focus. T
I’ve lived with Endometriosis for over 30 years but I was officially diagnosed almost 4 years ago.

Endo has provided me the opportunity to live my BEST life with renewed focus. There’s a lot to learn, do and advocate for while living with this illness and what better way to do it than with others walking this journey with you. I established Endo Connect LA for US, you are not alone. This is absolutely the BEST sisterhood I NEVER wanted to be a part of but here we are. Let’s spend some time together to connect, learn and be of support to one another. I hope to see you all soon.
