Endometriosis Awareness Month

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

My daughter has endometriosis and it has caused her a bunch of problems over the years.  She went through horribly uncomfortable periods, painful ovulation, bouts of diarrhea contrasted with constipation… For years she was not a happy camper.

Endometriosis, aside from making one feel lousy, can interfere with fertility and make having a child difficult.  Read more about endometriosis in our previous post.

My daughter ultimately had surgery to “clean up” as much unwanted tissue in her abdomen as possible.  Happily, she now has two daughters and far fewer discomforts every month.  If you have symptoms and think you may have endometriosis, talk to your doc about it.  Don’t suffer in silence.   Although you can’t get rid of it all together, there are ways of treating it.
