Endometriosis Awareness

When the tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus grows in places outside of your uterus, it causes a painful condition called endometriosis. It can affect anyone who has menstrual periods. The severity of symptoms can vary a lot. For some women their symptoms are so mild they do not even realize they have it. This is why endometriosis can sometimes come as a surprise diagnosis when a couple is having trouble getting pregnant. It can also be hereditary. So mom or grandma could have also had it and just did not know.

Understanding what endometriosis is, and how it can affect a woman’s health and fertility is important for all women – not just those with symptoms. If you have pelvic pain during ovulation and menstruation, painful sex, painful bowel movements or urination, or are trying unsuccessfully to get pregnant, ask your doctor about endometriosis.
