Abstract This research explores the awareness of endometriosis among village married women in Sundargarh district, Odisha, India, focusing on the unique healthcare needs of rural populations. Endometriosis, a chronic gynecological condition, often remains undiagnosed or misdiagnosed in rural areas due to limited access to healthcare resources and insufficient awareness. Through a descriptive study involving 100 respondents, including 75 employed and 25 unemployed individuals, the research aims to assess the level of awareness among village women regarding endometriosis, its symptoms, and associated risks. Data collection involved personal interviews conducted at respondents' homes, followed by meticulous tabulation and statistical analysis. The findings highlight the prevalence of endometriosis symptoms, such as pelvic and abdominal pain, among respondents, with varying degrees of severity. The study underscores the importance of targeted educational campaigns and interventions to empower women to recognize early signs of endometriosis, seek timely medical assistance, and navigate the healthcare system effectively. By addressing cultural, social, and economic barriers to healthcare access, stakeholders can work towards improving reproductive health outcomes and reducing the burden of endometriosis on women's lives in rural India.
