More than 13,500 women have taken part in BBC Research revealing the devastating effect of endometriosis.
Half said they had had suicidal thoughts, and many said they rely on highly addictive painkillers. Most also said endometriosis - involving painful periods - had badly affected their education, career and relationships.
MPs are to launch an inquiry into women's experiences of endometriosis following the research.
Women with the condition answered questions on how the condition has affected them. The charity Endometriosis UK helped gather the responses.
The condition affects one in 10 women and, as well as extremely heavy periods, can cause debilitating pain and sometimes infertility.
