This Is The Most Common And Devastating Disease You've Never Heard About

Signs of the disease include excessive bleeding, painful bowel movements and urination, pain during intercourse, dysmenorrhea, and infertility. You may also experience diarrhea, constipation, fatigue, and bloating.

There are risk factors to developing endometriosis. If you've never had a child, have a history of pelvic infection, have female relatives with the disease, or a medical condition that prevents normal passage of menstrual flow out of the body, you are at a greater risk. It may take years to develop.

The most common consequence of endometriosis is infertility. About half of women with endometriosis will have difficulty becoming pregnant. There are also greater chances of developing ovarian cancer.

This is one disease every woman should know about. Early diagnosis improves prognosis.
