Truth, Theory, or Tall Tale?

1 in 10 women suffer from Endometriosis

Theory

Just how many women suffer from Endometriosis?  And what are the figures if they included transgender, non-binary and the (very rare) instances of men with Endometriosis? And how do we know those stats?  Depending on what source you’re looking at, the number is between 2% – 15% of women suffer from Endometriosis.  Some say 1 in 10 women, other sources say 5-10%, and others say 10-15% of women.  The National Institute of Health once said, “Because some women might have Endometriosis, but do not have symptoms, it is difficult to know exactly how many women have the condition.” For now, 1 in 10 seems to be the best number anyone can estimate.
