ENDOMETRIOSIS & PERIODS
Endometriosis is a chronic disease that affects approximately 1 in 10 women of childbearing age. It is characterized by the presence of tissue similar to the endometrium, which grows outside the uterus, usually in the pelvic cavity.
Menstruation can be very painful for women with endometriosis due to inflammation and tissue adhesions that form inside the body.
This pain can also affect quality of life and limit daily activities. Women with endometriosis may suffer from other symptoms, such as chronic pelvic pain, pain during intercourse, abnormal bleeding, fatigue, digestive and urinary disorders, etc.
Period pain can also impact women's mental health, leading to anxiety and depression. Women can also experience sleep disturbances and fatigue during this time, which can worsen their emotional state.
