“Living with endometriosis can be lonely; even our families may not fully understand. Sometimes, our doctors don’t grasp the pain we go through, leaving us with discouraging comments,” says Sama, a patient suffering from severe endometriosis.
Endometriosis is a medical condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus, called endometrium, grows outside the womb. This can lead to various symptoms such as pelvic pain, irregular menstrual cycles, and fertility issues.
Sama is one of the many women in the country facing this adversity, and getting treatment for this condition is expensive and difficult.
