And can you explain what endometriosis is for those listeners who haven’t heard the term before?

Christina: “Endometriosis is more common than you think, it impacts 1 in 10 women worldwide. A lot of us are walking around not even knowing we have it, mainly due to late diagnosis. With endometriosis tissue similar to the lining of the uterus deposits and grow in different areas of the body such as the ovaries, fallopian tubes, rectum, bowel and in rare cases it can grow in the lungs, eyes and brain.
