Hannah Nazri’s Birthday Fundraiser

Researching on endometriosis as a doctoral researcher at the University of Oxford, made me realise how little we know about endometriosis.  Endometriosis is the presence of uterus tissue (the endometrial layer, the layer that sheds during menstruation) in other parts of the body other than the uterus. The presence of endometriotic lesions cause symptoms such as pain during menstruation and outside menstruation not limited to the pelvic area, and up to 50% of these women suffer infertility. 1 in 10 women suffer from endometriosis and yet we still do not understand what causes endometriosis, we do not have a clinically relevant test besides an invasive diagnostic surgery, and we do not have a cure. Importantly it made me realised the lack of support women who suffer from endometriosis get due to the gender pain gap, among other factors.

Endometriosis UK has been an incredible source of support and information to patients. Therefore for my birthday this year, I am hoping to raise funds in aid of Endometriosis UK and every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

More information about Endometriosis UK: Endometriosis is a chronic condition affecting 1.5 million UK women. It causes severe pain and has a serious impact on quality of life, yet there is no known cause or cure. Endometriosis UK works to reduce the inequalities surrounding the condition through support services, campaigning, awareness and information. It takes on average 8 years to diagnose with over 68% of women initially misdiagnosed.
