Living with Endometriosis10 Apr 2018
You thought you had to live with painful periods, pelvic pain, cramping, pain during intercourse, pain associated with bowel movements or urination or excessive bleeding, fertility issues, bloating, fatigue, nausea and/or unwanted hair. You thought that was just the challenges associated with your period. Many women find out that, no, it is endometriosis.
What is Endometriosis?
Endometriosis is a condition in which the endometrium, or the tissue that lines the uterus, grows in other areas, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes. The problem is that this tissue acts like normal uterine tissue. During the menstrual cycle, it breaks down and bleeds. But it has no exit point, so to speak. This tissue gets trapped. It can irritate healthy surrounding tissue or lead to the formation of cysts, scar tissue and adhesions.
Among the symptoms and side effects of endometriosis is fluctuation in hormone production, which can lead to excessive hair growth.
