The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare has just released a report on Endometriosis – “Prevalence and hospitalisations”. I thought it was important to talk about this and share this information in a previous post.
When I did post this information on social media, with an explanation about endometriosis being more than just period pain, someone had commented and congratulated me for acknowledging that endometriosis has other associated symptoms as well.
One of the things I see with media reporting on anything to do with endometriosis, is that they always refer to endometriosis as just being about period pain. So I wanted to talk about the importance of recognising that endometriosis is more than just period pain.
Endometriosis has many other associated symptoms and is more than just period pain, which it is often portrays it as in the media. Endometriosis flares can happen at anytime and aren’t always related to a woman’s menstrual cycle.
Have a listen to my latest video post about this subject and some other useful information to know about endometriosis.
