ENDO FOCUS

It is becoming more evident that women need to open up safe spaces where they can talk about issues affecting their daily lives. Endometriosis is a condition affecting numerous women, I know quite a few women including friends, family and colleagues affected by endometriosis. It is often misunderstood and pushed under the carpet just as natural period pains.

A woman’s period pain often indicates something more serious, in some cases it could indicate a condition called endometriosis, where the layer of tissue that normally covers the inside of the uterus, grows outside it.

Endo Focus is an exclusive breakfast and a space for authentic interactions and beautiful conversations surrounding endometriosis. The dialogues aim to educate women on endometriosis, how to know when you have it, where to get help and how to overcome challenges brought by the condition.

Kaboomo Mgibi will bring together Dr Elna Rudolph, a full time sexual health practitioner who will be speaking about sexual health in relation to endometriosis, as well as Vusi Sape, a dietician who will be sharing healthy lifestyle tips and answer all questions related to healthy food choices. Malango Mughogho a Yoga Instructor and endometriosis survivor will be the third speaker for the morning and will share her personal endometriosis journey and how Yoga has helped her win the battle.

The event is open to everyone, male and female alike because endometriosis affects us all in some way and it will be taking place at the Ngata Safari Lodge in Pretoria on the 30th of September from 09:00 to 11:00.

    I so wish we’d have something like this in Durban. I suffer from Endometriosis, have already had one surgery and am back on the medication to try and get rid of what has regrown in less than a year, all in an effort to maintain my fertility. And people don’t like to usually discuss this all so openly.
