EarthBasic. Take care. Bless many.
Periods, as natural as they are, have earned a reputation for interrupting the lives of women. We have come to expect disruptions caused by pain, changes in mood and appetite, along with other unpleasantries. However, this reputation has caused many women and care providers to underreport and under-diagnose cases of period related illnesses. This week we shine the spotlight on endometriosis.
What is endometriosis?
Endometriosis is when cells similar to those lining the uterus are found in other parts of the body, such as the ovaries and other reproductive organs, causing pain throughout the menstrual cycle, during sex or urination, vaginal spasms, severe or abnormal vaginal bleeding, irregular bowel movements, bloating and or fatigue. (Jean Hailes for Women's Health).
