How JMW Can Help
Endometriosis is often diagnosed late or misdiagnosed as another condition, leaving the women who suffer from it in long-term, debilitating pain.

Our legal specialists are here to provide practical advice that will ensure the claims process runs as smoothly as possible. We understand that you have likely suffered a great deal of pain and distress due to the negligence you have endured and we will do our utmost to ensure that those responsible are held accountable.

We are named as a Tier 1 firm in the Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500 legal industry guides in recognition of our position as one of the UK’s foremost authorities on medical negligence.
Why is endometriosis misdiagnosed so often?
On average, it takes 7.5 years from the onset of endometriosis symptoms for a patient to get a diagnosis. This can be a result of the wide variety of symptoms, which are often confused with other conditions, including:
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Crohn’s disease
- Ovarian or uterine cancer
- Painful periods
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
- Uterine fibroids
- Bladder conditions
- Interstitial cystitis
- Pelvic floor dysfunction
- Polycystic ovarian disease
- Other bowel conditions
How can endometriosis misdiagnosis affect mental health?
The emotional side effects of misdiagnosed endometriosis can also be severe. Research carried out by the BBC, which questioned 13,500 women on their experiences relating to the condition, revealed that half had had suicidal thoughts, while many rely on highly addictive painkillers to lessen their symptoms.
Seeking expert legal help if you have suffered misdiagnosed endometriosis can help you to rebuild your life, and fund any medical or psychological treatment you require.
