Endometriosis

Get The Help And Support You Need For Endometriosis

In Ireland, it is estimated that approximately 1 in 10 women suffer with endometriosis, a condition that can have a significant impact on sufferer’s lives and that of their friends and families. Endometriosis is a chronic condition that is characterised by pain - painful periods, painful sex, and painful ovulation.  It is also one of the leading causes of infertility.

The Endometriosis Association of Ireland (EAI) is a registered charity that was established in 1987. It is a non-profit and non-governmental patient organisation, striving to provide support and information for sufferers of endometriosis. Their aim is to create awareness of the condition amongst women and the medical profession and also awareness of the symptoms, effects and treatment options.

One of the key calendar events annually for the EAI is the Annual Information Day.

This year is the 30th Anniversary of the Endometriosis Association of Ireland and we have an ambition to make this year our biggest Information Day to date!

On the day we will share with you the work, which the EAI has completed over the past 30 years and our ambitions for the next 30 years and beyond. We look forward to seeing and supporting as many people as possible on the day 

Kathleen King, Chairperson of the EAI.
