Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women, and there are approximately 176 million women who suffer from this disease. In spite of this, it is not widely known and therefore not getting enough funding for research.
Let’s get the word out. If you suffer from endometriosis or know of someone who does, please share these videos. It would be really appreciated.

For those seeking complimentary and alternative medicine for endometriosis, here’s a good article to read, especially because it is evidence based. I do take into consideration that some therapies may be effective for some women, but not necessarily for all. I am a believer of free choice, but at the same time, it pays do some reading beforehand if it saves you some grief, if any.

The European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology had published early this year the guidelines for the management of endometriosis in women. It is claimed that the said document has been a reference point for best clinical care in endometriosis for years.
Having gone through the document myself, I perfectly agree with this. In spite of being a document of medical nature, it is presented in a FAQ style which lay people like myself will find easy to comprehend. The document is also something that you can discuss with your specialist especially if you have particular concerns about your treatment plan.

Okay, first up — here is a video I saw on Facebook which I thought was very insightful. Carol Pearson spun her own version of Red Riding Hood, in an attempt to explain endometriosis to the community. Definitely worth watching!
Well, that was a looong hiatus! Three years to be exact!
A lot has been going on in my life, but now I am back on track.
I have been rather active of late in my endometriosis journey so I will attempt to post all new worthy information where possible.
For now, cheers to this blog and to the long endo road ahead! Bring it on!
