Endometriosis Awareness

Endometriosis is a serious disease that affects more than 830,000 menstruators in Australia (more than 10%). Endometriosis is an inflammatory condition where tissue lining (similar to the lining of the uterus) abnormally grows outside of the uterus leading to pain and/or infertility. In endometriosis, this tissue can be found on the ovaries, fallopian tubes or the intestines. ⁣

The disease often starts during the teenage years and the symptoms experienced are often debilitating, putting life on hold. Symptoms include (but are not limited to): heavy painful periods, bleeding in between periods, infertility, fatigue, sharp deep pain during sexual intercourse, ovulation, bowel movements, urination, sciatica during menstruation, indigestion, constipation, diarrhoea and nausea. ⁣

Due to the variable symptoms affecting many body systems, diagnosis is sometimes delayed by 7-12 years. Pain is NOT normal; it is a sign that something is not functioning optimally and so many do not seek help when they are experiencing these symptoms because of embarrassment and suffer in silence. This enhances why the menstrual health empowerment movement is so important to remove the stigma/shame around this! If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please speak to a health professional- you are not alone, and help is available to you!
