Educate those about Endometriosis.
We hope to be a group of support for those dealing with the strains of having Endometriosis. We hope to educate those on trying to figure out what Endometriosis is all about.
What Is Endometriosis?
Endometriosis is the growth of the uterine lining tissue outside of the uterus. It is one of the most challenging health conditions and affects over 10 million women in the United States alone. It is one of the leading causes of pelvic pain and infertility. Though there are many effective treatments, there is no known cure for this desease. Since endometriosis is a progressive desease [Stage I to IV] and can spread like cancer, an early detection and treatment is very important.
How Does Endometriosis Affect Women?
Endometriosis can be found outside the uterus, inside and outside the ovaries, or implanted upon the fallopian tubes, large and small intestines, the appedix, the bladder wall and the urethra, as well as anywhere else in the body. When women have their period, the endometriosis also responds to the menstrual cycle's hormonal signals, causing a period-like bleeding from the endometriosis sites. When the endometriosis bleeds, women may have sensations of deep pain or cramping. The body responds to the bleeding by surrounding it with inflammation, often causing ahesions and leaving scar tissues.
Women suffering from endometriosis experience severe pain during their menstrual cycle or during intercourse, excessive or irregular bleeding, urinary or bowel problems.
