  • Signs and Symptoms of Endometriosis | with Natalie Pickering

    March 11, 2021 2 min read

     

    March is the month to educate and empower women with endometriosis, who are often suffering in silence, often unaware that their symptoms are caused by endometriosis. It’s also the month to educate friends and family with better understanding and compassion for those who have this often debilitating disease.


    Endometriosis is a disease where tissue (similar but not the same as the tissue lining the uterus) grows in other areas of the body – most commonly on the bladder, bowel, ovaries, fallopian tubes and the wall of the pelvis.
    It has also been found on almost every other organ in the body.


    Endometriosis symptoms are not always easy to spot, perhaps explaining why the average time to diagnosis is 7-10 years… Take a moment to think about the symptoms in the image above to be sure those apparently random symptoms aren’t your body’s way of telling you to pay attention and seek out excellent care and support.


    Endometriosis Australia describes Endometriosis as the most aggressive benign and debilitating disease facing Australian women today… and yet we are still battling to get the message out there. It’s time ladies – share this post, chat with your tribe about endo!
