April is here and with it comes an important reminder, it is Adenomyosis Awareness Month! Just like endometriosis, adenomyosis is a poorly understood condition that affects countless individuals worldwide and many still have never heard of it! Many symptoms of adenomyosis overlap with those of endometriosis often making it difficult to diagnose. Let's use this month to start conversations, educate, support and advocate for those living with this condition.

Amz has kindly shared their top tip for living well with endo for us:
"Resilience is something an endo warrior carries, not always by choice but by necessity. A key to staying well for me, is understanding my limitations, making adjustments as needed and knowing that there will be good days and bad days. At the core taking care of my mental health has been essential. Lifestyle including diet changes and incorporating complimentary therapies like massage, acupuncture and physio, alongside my GP have contributed to being able to live a fulfilling life."
