    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I am not a sufferer myself but I have friends that have endo. What amazes me is that they rarely complain about it. I know they struggle but they do so silently and they deserve tremendous respect.
    I know March is the month to raise awareness about this medical condition that affects so many women globally. As a cytogeneticist and a writer on a blog me and a close friend of mine have, I decided to do my fair share in order to try and help even just a tiny bit in the battle you give 24/7. I decided to write an article about endometriosis with as simple but accurate information as possible so that everyone can understand.
    I am not sure whether I managed to cover your "reality" accurately but I hope I was at least a bit close in saying "Ladies, you are NOT alone". Because ladies, you are true warriors, you are heroes and you need to be heard! I wish you all the best and thank you for your time!
