I've been in contact with Endometriosis UK in the hope to speak to someone aged in the 20s preferably for a short interview to form part of a group of case studies for my final project for my journalism masters course at City University, and was suggested to contact women on here. I'm writing a 5,000 feature on how periods/endo/fibroids etc affect women professionally, emotionally etc. Several women's consumer magazines are interested in this subject.
I'd love to speak to someone in the 20s who has suffered from endo and has potentially had to take time off work/leave work/had their career goals affected by endo and its symptoms.
I understand how hard it must be to talk about endo so I'd really appreciate anyone giving up their time to speak to me. It's a subject that I really think needs to be spoken more openly about and highlighted in society.
