Sadly, a lack of awareness among sufferers and health care professionals has resulted in the normalization of these symptoms, to the degree that many women don't get diagnosed for years.
As a result, more and more celebrities are using their platforms to raise awareness about this highly prevalent but sadly neglected condition. Click through this gallery to learn more about endometriosis and the famous women who suffer from it.
