March is #EndometriosisAwarenessMonth .
Endometriosis is a chronic, systemic inflammatory disease that does not have a cure. 1 in 10 women have endometriosis, yet it is one of the least researched conditions. It is not just a reproductive organ disease. It is when tissue similar (not identical) to the lining of the uterus, is found throughout the pelvic cavity and on organs. It can cause chronic symptoms throughout the entire body, including debilitating pain, immune and endocrinological dysfunction, chronic fatigue, infertility, as well as damage to organs such as uterus, bladder, bowels, diaphragm, pelvic floor, nerves, ligaments, lungs and liver.
