I wanted to share detailed of an exciting new webpage and film, recently produced by De Montfort University and Endometriosis UK, addressing the impact that endometriosis can have on both women and their partners, and on the couple relationship. endometriosis-uk.org/endome...
These resources are based on findings from the ENDOPART study into the impact of endometriosis on couples.
The webpage describes the various ways in which the condition might affect couples, and offers some information and advice about coping with the condition as a couple. It also features a film exploring this issue, featuring real life couples and advice from a Clinical Psychologist.
To correspond with the launch of these resources, Endometriosis UK support group sessions addressing the impact of endometriosis on couples are being delivered at various locations across the UK – visit endometriosis-uk.org/suppor... to find your local support group and to enquire about this session.
On Monday 7 August, Professor Nicky Hudson, De Montfort University, discussed the topic with Emma Barnett on BBC Radio 4 Women's Hour along with a couple affected by endometriosis – you listen to the show at: bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08zzljw.
I hope you will find the resources useful.
