This is a condition involving uterine menstrual tissue outside of the uterus. One in nine women have endometriosis and often there is a late diagnosis as detecting and diagnosis is not straightforward. A good history and sonovaginography assists in assessing for endometriosis. Often the only way to really know is by an operation laparoscopy to have a look inside.
I have been living with endometriosis since a young adult but was only diagnosed recently. The diagnosis process is quite unique to endometriosis and having experienced a wholistic approach I am passionate about guiding people with endo through their personal journey as naturally as possible. There are many avenues to manage the flares and pain and return to function without going to surgery as the first option.
Endometriosis is often associated with symptoms such as chronic fatigue, irritable bowel, depression, anxiety, insomnia and chronic pain to name a few. This is why a wholistic approach is helpful.
I am here to guide, support and inspire you to living well with endo.
