Preventing Endometriosis


Endometriosis has always been  gynecologically misunderstood. This woman’s disease is associated with infertility.

Endometriosis is the abnormal growth of cells (endometrial cells) similar to those that form the inside of the uterus, but in a location outside of the uterus. It is most commonly found on other organs of the pelvis.

The exact cause of this disease has not been identified yet,  it is  complex and it’s difficult to treat. The big problem with it is that it can make a woman infertile.

Scientists reported that” one woman on 10 can suffer of  Endometriosis and that five women on 10, that are affected, can become infertile”.

When this tissue is located outside the uterus, bleeding has no outlet to the outside of the body. Blood and detached endometrial cells can irritate the surrounding organs and the peritoneum (the membrane that contains the organs of the abdomen). This can also lead to the formation of cysts (from the size of a pin to that of a grapefruit), scar tissue, thus interconnecting the organs and causing pain.
