MONDAY, May 12 (HealthScoutNews) -- To mark National Women's Health Week, the Endometriosis Research Center is offering free fact sheets and a free self-test for endometriosis.

The fact sheet discusses important concerns and questions that face women who have, or think they have, endometriosis. The self-test can be completed by women and girls, who can then take it to their gynecologist for review and further discussion. The research center is located in Delray Beach, Fla.

National Women's Health Week, from May 11-17, is an effort by an alliance of national organizations to increase awareness about steps that women can take to improve their health. The main message to women is the importance of incorporating simple preventative and positive health habits into their daily lives.

Here's where you can find the endometriosis fact sheet and self-test. You can also phone 1-800-239-7280 and ask for National Women's Health Week materials.
