Women are strong, resilient, gentle, powerful, and beautiful. They are powerhouses. Women deserve to be celebrated and appreciated. They don’t hear how great they are everyday, but they are the stars of our society.
One in ten women suffer from Endometriosis, yet we don’t talk about it. 176 million women are estimated to suffer from Endometriosis. If all of those women were to form a country, it would be the seventh largest country in the world.~@Endowarriors, #Endofacts
The most common symptoms of Endometriosis are:
- Pain, especially excessive menstrual cramps which may be found in abdomen or lower back
- Pain during intercourse
- Abnormal or heavy menstrual flow
- Painful urination during menstrual periods
- Painful bowel movements during menstrual period
- Other gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhea, constipation, bloating, and/or nausea

Endometriosis is more than just a painful period. It is a pain that disrupts your entire life. Some women describe it as being stabbed from the inside. Pain is not normal. It needs to be discussed openly and early diagnosis needs to promoted.
Let’s talk about Endometriosis, and encourage women to seek medical advice.
Happy women’s day!
