Awareness Month 2021
March is Endometriosis Awareness Month – and this year, more than ever, we want to ensure the voices of those affected by endometriosis are not forgotten.
Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women and those assigned female at birth, yet society all too often considers it a taboo.
This March, we can change that. Here’s how you can get involved.
Take on a 1 in 10 fundraising Challenge:
Will you support Endometriosis UK to #EndoTheStigma by taking on the 1 in 10 Challenge?
Whether you are a keen runner, baker or quizzer there are so many ways to take part. Participants can Move 10 by running, walking or cycling 10km; if baking is more your thing then set yourself a Bake 10 goal; or get your friends and family together and host your own virtual Quiz 10 event.

This year we want to #EndoTheStigma by encouraging everyone to be more open about endometriosis – to talk, acknowledge and understand. We are calling on the public, healthcare practitioners, policymakers, politicians, workplaces and our community to come together to raise public awareness of endometriosis, its symptoms, and the impact it has on people’s lives.
