Endometriosis Awareness Month
Because of the perverse symptoms, endometriosis can be difficult to diagnose. Mild endometriosis is a condition that can leave a woman in pain for several days, or every day for a month. Women with severe type can feel no pain at all.
There are many people who will help with medical conditions like cancer, AIDS and autism. But there is also a holiday that is dedicated to women’s health. Endometriosis is a condition that women around the globe march to raise funds for a cure. Learn more about Endometriosis and how you can get involved in raising funds for this cause.
Endometriosis refers to a condition in which tissue similar to that of the uterus can also be found elsewhere in the body. This is most commonly in the abdominal cavity. Karl von Rokitansky was the first to see it microscopically in 1860. However, medical texts have documented it since more than 4,000 years. One in 10 women are affected by this condition every year, yet it is not often discussed. It can lead to painful symptoms like heavy periods, pain after or during sex, pain around the intestines, lower abdomen, and so on.
Endometriosis Awareness is a global campaign to raise awareness about the disease. It takes place around the world during March. Endometriosis.com estimates that the condition affects approximately 176 million women around the world. Endometriosis.com provides information and updates for women around the globe about the condition. It also links scientists and doctors to help them.
