Endometriosis Symptoms, Treatment,  Pregnancy & Diet

I became interested in endometriosis only recently when I learned that despite all the testing I’ve had over the past two years, endometriosis could have caused my previous two miscarriages, and if anything is going to stop me from having a baby in the next year, this will probably be the culprit.

If you are looking for an explanation of what endometriosis is, or are wondering why you or anyone else would care about it, then you’ve come to the right place because I have done a LOT of research and I am about to share all of it with you!  So if you’ve found this blog article my guess is you want to understand this disorder with more understanding than just “oh, it has something to do with infertility and it’s bad”? If so, read on.

In this article, I’ll be discussing what endometriosis is exactly: what the signs and symptoms of endometriosis are; the possible risks of having it (infertility included); how to prevent it from getting worse, manage it; and what the treatment options are if you’re diagnosed.

Don’t worry. I’ll try to keep it as simple and understandable as possible. I was pretty overwhelmed, when I first started learning about it!

Women suffering any form of infertility let alone endometriosis may have developed an exceptional tolerance for reading through painfully medical articles, but you won’t need to do that here. I’ve tried my best to provide you with something comprehensive, yet digestible. I’ve taken out the “oh no that’s going to happen to me fear”, while retaining the facts with a measured approach.

While my infertility was caused by PCOS, as well as a few other unfortunate circumstances, if it helps you at all you are more than welcome to read or listen to my own personal story.

Endometriosis is really good at being a disease

Endometriosis is a really effective disease in women because it’s exceptionally common, and pretty much impossible to diagnose without surgery. If I’ve sparked your interest thus far then good, because as well as providing you with a comprehensive overview of this reproductive disorder, I’m also hoping to recruit you to spread the word about this remarkably pervasive, yet seldom discussed disease.
