This project was developed from the 2012-13 ESRC-funded study ‘Endometriosis: improving the wellbeing of couples’. It further developed the collaborative working relationship and knowledge exchange partnership, established during the research, between De Montfort University and Endometriosis UK, the leading UK charity.
This project has resulted in a new webpage - featuring a short film - addressing the impact that endometriosis can have on both women and their partners, and on the couple relationship, and offering coping advice.
We have also produced a support group session on this topic. Sessions are being delivered at Endometriosis UK support groups at various locations across the UK – click here to find your group and to enquire about this session.
Prof Nicky Hudson, who led the project, discussed this work with Emma Barnett on BBC Radio 4 Women's Hour on 7 August 2017 - listen to the show here.
