This week marks a week dedicated to raising awareness around a condition that affects many women at some level, Endometriosis.
From time to time, every woman suffers from painful cramps or other side effects during their menstrual cycles. However, according to health.com, around 10% of women of childbearing age have more severe problems caused by Endometriosis.
Let’s get a bit educated… Endometriosis occurs when the lining of the uterus (called Endometrial Tissue) makes its way outside the uterus and adheres to the bladder, fallopian tubes or bowels.(Sounds painful, right? Well it is!) At certain times during the menstrual cycle this tissue swells and can cause pain and other effects.
So, how do you know if you’re suffering from Endometriosis? Consider these five common symptoms of this painful disorder when vetting yourself.
While these five issues can be signs of Endometriosis, they are also sometimes signifiers of other disorders too. If you suspect Endometriosis may be an issue for you, we suggest you reach out to your health provider to undergo the right screenings.
