That this House notes the struggles that more than one million women in the UK suffering from endometriosis face; recognises that no one should suffer from endometriosis or any health condition in silence; acknowledges that endometriosis can severely affect a woman’s life and that there is very little public understanding of it; notes that proper diagnosis is essential for a women’s well-being, and can improve mental health while empowering them to make informed decisions about planning for a family; supports the need to boost awareness and diagnosis education for better health outcomes; reaffirms that some women with endometriosis are entitled to certain rights and adjustments in the workplace under the Equality Act 2010; and calls on the Government to launch a wider awareness campaign on endometriosis to encourage women to get diagnosed and improve public understanding of the condition.
