Understanding and Managing Endometriosis

March is Endometriosis Awareness Month, dedicated to raising awareness about this often misunderstood and painful condition. Endometriosis occurs when tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus, leading to inflammation, scarring, and sometimes severe pain.

Symptoms of Endometriosis:
• Pelvic pain that worsens during menstruation
• Painful periods
• Pain during or after sex
• Pain with bowel movements or urination
• Excessive bleeding
• Infertility

Treatment for endometriosis varies depending on the severity of symptoms and the patient’s desire for fertility. Options include hormone therapy, surgery to remove endometrial tissue, and lifestyle changes.

Lifestyle Tips for Managing Endometriosis:
• Maintain a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins.
• Stay physically active to help manage pain and improve overall well-being.
• Practice relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation, or deep breathing to reduce stress.
