Endometriosis Cymru Inclusivity Statement

Endometriosis is due to specific tissues in the body that only people assigned female at birth produce. For this reason, the research, terminology, and discussion has been focused on people who identify as women or girls, and less so on people who identify as trans men or trans boys. 

We nevertheless use this research and its terminology for documentary accuracy. Research, terminology and discussion has largely focused on cis gender women and girls, and less so on transgender individuals. Similarly, the research base mainly looks at non-disabled people and younger populations.

We recognise, and have tried to represent that there is much greater diversity in the many people living with endometriosis. As new research emerges in new populations it will be incorporated into our website and educational materials.
