Endometriosis Awareness Month

Endometriosis Awareness Month

Endometriosis Awareness Month aims to raise awareness about this hidden and often unrecognised condition when the presence of ectopic endometrial tissue occurs outside the uterine cavity.

Endometriosis most commonly involves the ovaries, fallopian tubes and the tissue lining your pelvis. Rarely, endometrial-like tissue may be found beyond the area where pelvic organs are located.

With endometriosis, the endometrial-like tissue acts as endometrial tissue would — it thickens, breaks down and bleeds with each menstrual cycle. But because this tissue has no way to exit your body, it becomes trapped. When endometriosis involves the ovaries, cysts called endometriomas may form.
Surrounding tissue can become irritated, eventually developing scar tissue and adhesions — bands of fibrous tissue that can cause pelvic tissues and organs to stick to each other.  Endometriosis can cause pain — sometimes severe — especially during menstrual periods and fertility problems also may develop. 

There is fantastic research on specific supplements to support endometriosis and help to provide relief for many of the symptoms.
The following supplements have been shown to improve quality of life with endometriosis, reduce chronic pain, pain during sex, urinary and bowel pain, and have led to regression or resolution of endometrial lesions and endometriosis-related ovarian cysts.
