|Endometriosis is a disease that affects millions of women worldwide. It is responsible for hundreds of thousands of missed work hours, pain ranging from mild to crippling, and, for some women, infertility. Too often, women with endometriosis have been dismissed as neurotic whiners. Our questions were ignored and our challenges unanswered. However there are treatments and answers to your questions. Having suffered from this dreadful disease I know the confusion that you will or are facing. The most important thing to remember when seeking a treatment (there is no "cure" for Endo)is that we are all different. We respond differently to drugs and medical procedures so what worked/works for me may not work for you. Only you and your Doctor can make the decision. Please make it an informed one.|
Here are some links to websites that will help you learn more about this disease.
There are many websites and forums out there. The internet has helped bring this disease into the light of reality. It is no longer all in our heads. Although misdiagnoses are still very common if you think you have endo and your Dr treats you like your crazy get a second or third opinion.
