1 IN 10 WOMEN SUFFER FROM ENDOMETRIOSIS
Did you know that 1 in 10 women suffer from endometriosis?
Endometriosis is the abnormal growth of endometrial cells beyond the uterine cavity. By their nature, these cells should only be located in the uterus. About 176 million women worldwide suffer from this disease.
Endometrial cells can be found on the ovaries, outer uterine walls, and fallopian tubes, or they can spread to the peritoneum, intestines and other organs.
Diagnosing endometriosis often requires complex examination or even surgical intervention. Relieving symptoms and curing endometriosis is a long painstaking process.
Most women with endometriosis have no symptoms. However, when women do experience signs and symptoms of endometriosis they may include:
- Pelvic pain that may worsen during menstruation
- Painful intercourse
- Painful bowel movements or urination
If you are confronted with this disease, find a doctor who specializes in this treatment.
