5 Important Facts about Endometriosis 

Endometriosis is a painful condition that nearly 180 million females all over the world live with. Yet many people are still unaware of what endometriosis actually is.  

This is why the month of March has been named Endometriosis Awareness Month, and we believe that it’s important to join this movement and share knowledge about the condition! 

What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a condition where the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus starts to grow outside of it. This tissue can cause scarring and inflammations, which cause a lot of pain.  

Many of the symptoms of endometriosis are misdiagnosed as “regular period pain”. Because of this, it often takes a long time before the condition can be correctly diagnosed.

As a part of Endometriosis Awareness Month, we want to share these 5 important facts about endometriosis:

  • It’s the biggest cause of infertility in females 
  • The cause of endometriosis is not known 
  • Some symptoms include painful menstruations and ovulations, heavy bleeding and chronic pain in the pelvic area 
  • Endometriosis usually occurs in the reproductive years, which means between 15 and 49 years 
  • There is no cure for endometriosis  

Remember that it’s important to see your doctor if you experience any of the symptoms listed, and make sure to share knowledge and awareness about endometriosis!
