I’m 39 years old and was diagnosed with endometriosis at 25, after struggling for 12 years. I experienced pelvic pain and cramps and tried to treat it with various forms of birth control (pills, IUD, and injections) and various prescription painkillers.

The pain affected so many aspects of my life, but especially the time I spent with my friends and family. I couldn’t fully enjoy family outings, and I kept having to cancel on my friends.

With ORILISSA, I was in less endo pain. Being in less pain allowed me to get back to doing some of the things I love—like cooking and spending more time with my daughters. I hope sharing my story will help other women learn about ORILISSA and encourage them to be more outspoken about their endo pain and need for treatment options.

I was diagnosed with endometriosis at 22, after dealing with severe pelvic pain for 6 years. I tried various forms of birth control and had 2 surgeries—neither did much to help my pain.

I was so fed up that, at only 34 years old, I asked my gynecologist if I should have a hysterectomy. That’s when he told me about a totally different option—a pill called ORILISSA! 

On ORILISSA, I have less pain. This lets me get back to things I love, like working out and playing softball. I hope my experience empowers other women and gives them hope that there are other options out there.

I’m 38 years old and was diagnosed with endometriosis at 28. For 15 years I suffered through painful periods, pain with sex, and severe pelvic pain. My doctor tried to treat it with birth control, injections, and a partial hysterectomy.

I used all of my energy just to get through the workday and didn’t feel up to doing much else once I got home. I felt so guilty when I couldn’t spend the time I wanted with my kids because of constant pain and exhaustion—but then I discovered ORILISSA. It has really helped with my pain—so I can get back to spending more time with my sons.

It’s important for women with endometriosis like me to feel like they can speak up. I hope my story can help others find their voice and a treatment that works for them.
