Endometriosis seems to have become part of women’s regular subject to talk about, being one of those unfortunate conditions that take a women’s uterus hostage, and many times, without anyone even noticing.
Some of the signs of endometriosis are:
- Cramping before or after the menstrual cycle;
- Heavy menstrual bleeding; and
- Pain and/or discomfort during intercourse.
Many times, women don’t even know that they have endometriosis because the symptoms may not be noticeable until the pain is too much to bear. For this reason, it’s very important that if you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, or that are mentioned in any other source of information, please visit your doctor right away.
From my personal experience, endometriosis developed in my uterus when I was 23 years old. After several tests and much deliberation, I was placed on a treatment called Lupron. Lupron is given as a shot to cease the menstrual cycle for 6 months. The side effects include menopause, which lasts for the length of the treatment. It was definitely a very tough experience, and it offered temporary relief.
Nearly 9 years after being diagnosed, the endometriosis returned, leading me to make the decision to have a hysterectomy. However; I was left with my ovaries because of my age, to which the endometriosis could still make its way to find a home in the ovaries, as endometriosis is somewhat born out of the ovulation cycle.
Much research has been done on endometriosis and many doctors scratch their heads because they aren’t sure why women get this. But endometriosis can be linked to emotional traumas such as sexual abuse and the emotions that we may attach to those memories of pain that make any woman feel unworthy, ashamed, and fearful. Learning to identify our emotional traumas and facing them with conviction to overcome them can break us free from the cycle of pain that endometriosis brings.
