she has what?
Saw this battle cry unanimous for all of us suffering from endometriosis.
Living with endometriosis means a lot of patience when dealing with scrutiny and misunderstanding from people. They’d ask me, what do you feel? And I often replied, “indescribable pain.”
Think you have Endometriosis? Early detection is key with Endometriosis. If you or your loved one are suffering from pelvic pain, painful periods, pain with intercourse, excessive bleeding, fatigue, painful urination during periods, or infertility make sure to get a check up! However, if regular checkups are not providing any answers, it’s time to find a doctor who CAN help! Check out @americanendofendoproject directory, link in our bio. #WomensCheckupDay

My Endometriosis Story: Journey through Pain
In order to understand completely one’s affliction is to have one. Pondering through the imponderable – a condition that is widely misunderstood and how to live above “it.” The dilemmas we endo-sufferers usually encounter are finding the best and sympathetic doctors, accurate diagnosis that will not take years, and having the right treatment/managements. It all begins with understanding this condition.
Endometriosis is an ailment while menstrual pain is merely a symptom, an indication.
Menstrual cramps last about two days only while in Endometriosis, it can be everyday or intermittent. Cramps can be considered normal if it’s not disabling and severe.
It would be best to see your doctor if your menstruation starts to feel odd, irregular and or extremely painful.

I’m currently writing this post prior to an endometrial procedure. Yeah a bit worried, but I’m placing everything in God’s hands. The thing with endometriosis is that you can never be complacent, even in the absence of pain, one has to continuously see a doctor and a regular check-up/diagnostic test is crucial. There’s no other way to monitor our condition but through periodical ultrasound.
I always feel the need to reach out to my fellow 176 million endo-sisters worldwide through writing and sharing my journey. Hope is definitely a powerful driving force that renders us strength and courage especially in this trying times.
