Operating as usual
Women’s health took over the front page of a UK national newspaper 📰 this week! It’s a reminder about the global impact of endometriosis. Let’s keep the conversation going to raise awareness so others can get the support and treatment they need. 💛
Endometriosis is one of the leading causes of infertility and affects an estimated 1 in 8 individuals and couples. In 2010, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to Dr. Robert Edwards for his assistance in developing in vitro fertilization, a medical marvel which allowed Lesley Brown to conceive, carry, and deliver her daughter Louise in 1978. Today, the Endometriosis & Pelvic Pain Center celebrates IVF’s 44th birthday, and would like to thank the IVF medical team at RADfertility for bridging the gap to fertility!
Tara Hilton, from The Yellow Cape - Delaware's Endo Community, shares her perspective on how stigma and taboo get in the way of a timely diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis!
RADfertility Joins EMPOWER Study Evaluating Non-Invasive Blood Test to Diagnose Endometriosis - RADfertility
Continued hope as we close out Endometriosis Awareness Month!🎗️ Drs. Feinberg and McGuirk have performed thousands of surgeries together to help women relieve their endometriosis pain. They are spearheading our participation in the EMPOWER Study which focuses on evaluating DotEndo for diagnosing endometriosis. The non-invasive test is designed to evaluate the presence and number of specific tiny strands of genetic material using a micro-ribonucleic acid (microRNA) approach on blood and saliva samples provided by the patient.

Fighter🎗️ Hope 🎗️ Never Give Up 🎗️This special cookie delivery 🍪 shared the perfect message in honor of Endometriosis Awareness Month! Tara Hilton and the team at The Yellow Cape - Delaware's Endo Community brought us these amazing treats from Cindy's Cookies & Cupcakes! The truth is that Tara has been one of the ultimate fighters to raise endometriosis awareness. Dr. McGuirk and our team are honored to support Tara’s efforts and echo her message that bad periods are not normal! All too often the condition is swept under the rug, ignored or misdiagnosed – let’s start the conversation and keep it going to create change! 💛
"Endometriosis hurts because there is so much ignorance, particularly amongst physicians and other health providers. When people with endometriosis are told ignorant things or have ignorant treatments that quickly leads to depression, questioning of self-worth, relationship breakups, loss of productivity, and feelings of isolation. Luckily, this ignorance can readily be overcome when someone with classic endometriosis symptoms turns to the Internet and social media, where it is easy to find that they are not alone. And through that information often comes empowerment and a plan of action.” – Dr. Ronald Feinberg 🎗️
Dr. Feinberg may have written this blog entry about endometriosis years ago, but the message is still just as true today. Read the full blog here: https://endopelvicpaincenter.com/dr-ronald-feinberg/why-endometriosis-hurts-everyone/ 💛
We are ready for you March! Today marks the first day of Endometriosis Awareness Month! 🎗️ Did you know that is one of the most common gynecological illnesses affecting 200 million people worldwide? Chronic pain should never be considered normal. This disease affects 1 in 10 reproductive-aged individuals - an estimated 200 million women worldwide - and many often experience a decade-long delay in diagnosis. This isn’t okay – and the only way we can change it is to educate and increase awareness! We are up for this challenge! 💛
Our team will be wearing special shirts 🌈 in the month of March to honor Endometriosis Awareness Month! 💛 The community often wants to join in the fun and inquires about purchasing a shirt & this is your opportunity to get one while supporting The Yellow Cape - Delaware's Endo Community!
