MPP Marit Stiles (Davenport) tabled a Bill to recognize March as Endometriosis Awareness Month. The Bill is co-sponsored by MPP Suze Morrison (Toronto Centre).
Endometriosis is a common condition experienced by 1 in 10 women, Trans, non-binary and gender diverse menstruators of reproductive age. The disease can cause debilitating conditions, including chronic pelvic pain, and is sometimes associated with infertility. Many suffer silently for years without a diagnosis, enduring extreme pain, nausea and other symptoms. Due to the stigma and shame associated with menstruation and the lack of knowledge and education around what constitutes a “normal” period, many sufferers never seek help or, if they do, find their concerns dismissed.
