Meet the Support Group Leader(s)

Anna

My Story:

I was diagnosed in May 2010 after a laparoscopy, although the investigations started 2 years prior when I started getting non cyclical pain. I first saw my GP about dysmenorrhea and depression at 13. Whilst living in Manchester, I attended the support group there and found it extremely comforting and helpful. I would like to provide the same in Merseyside now I have moved back.

Rebecca

My Story:

I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2015 after an ovarian cyst was discovered. I had been experiencing symptoms of endo since I was 15. I wanted to become a Support Group Leader as I had never come across anybody who had endometriosis and faced the condition alone. I want to help promote this condition and be there for others, so they do not have to be alone."

 

About the support group:

The support group is a place where we can find information, support and understanding with women in similar situations. The group is here to provide a safe place for everyone to speak openly. We also hope to promote fundraising and awareness in the community.

I felt anxious about attending my first support group but found it very welcoming, positive and informative.  We hope to see you soon.

General Session Information:

There will be a mixture of speakers and informal groups.
