響應全球運動 喚起女性關注
港30萬女性患子宮內膜異位 
持續經痛或致不育
1分鐘問卷找出風險指數 
長期治療防復發

子宮內膜異位症於香港是常見婦科疾病。根據過往一項調查推算,子宮內膜異位症的發病率佔全港人口約5%,,即全港超過30萬女性患有不同程度的子宮內膜異位症;然而,女性往往輕視經痛及子宮內膜異位症的其他病症,認為經期不適是正常或只是體虛氣弱的現象,因此或會低估出現嚴重子宮內膜異位症的可能性,以致延誤治療。

為提高女性對子宮內膜異位症的關注,香港基層醫護女性健康聯盟於今年正式加入及響應於每年三月在全球各地舉行的「世界子宮內膜異位日」(Worldwide EndoMarch),向女性提出三大建議,包括:

利用源於美國子宮內膜異位症研究中心及婦女醫院的「1分鐘測經痛」問卷,只需回答簡單問題便可初步推算自己有否患上子宮內膜異位症;若自我測試結果顯示有機會患上子宮內膜異位症,應立即求醫,如進行盆腔超聲波檢查或參與子宮內膜異位檢查計劃。
