What You Need to Know about Endometriosis
As this month comes to an end, we wanted to talk about something that is near and dear to our hearts: Endometriosis Awareness Month.
Endometriosis, like many women’s health problems, has gone wildly untalked about. Many women go through life experiencing intense pain and thinking that it’s just normal for them to have to live with that pain. Because of this, many women around the world don’t know that what they’re experiencing is abnormal and many go undiagnosed when in reality, they are suffering from Endometriosis.
Your pain is not normal.
176 million women (that’s 10% of women) around the world have suffered and continue to suffer from a disease that has a huge impact on their daily lives.
What Is Endometriosis?
Endometriosis is a condition that occurs when tissue that is similar to the lining of the uterus is found elsewhere in the body. This tissue can be found in a number of areas including the Fallopian tubes, on the ovaries, on the pelvic sidewall, and even in places such as the bladder.
As a result of this, intense pelvic pain occurs. This pain is unpredictable and can be debilitating to those experiencing it. The pain can occur during menstruation, sex, and urination. There can also be excessive bleeding during and not during menstruation.
Long-term effects of Endometriosis include scar tissue, infertility, and an increased risk of ovarian cancer.
How to Help Treat Your Endometriosis Symptoms?
The most common and most life-altering symptom of Endometriosis is the pain that it causes. There are multiple treatments available for this pain, though it’s important to note that the effectiveness of these treatments varies based on the individual.
Common treatments include anti-inflammatory drugs, hormonal treatment, and surgery to remove the excess tissue.
All of these treatments are long-term solutions, however, so many women need to find everyday treatments that can help them manage their pain.
Some everyday solutions to help lessen pain can include hot baths and acupuncture, though again, these practices may not help every individual.
At Nannocare, we created the NannoPad to help ease discomfort during one’s menstrual cycle. We’re able to do this by using far infrared energy.
Not only have we found this technology to be helpful in easing menstrual discomfort, but our customers have stated that it has helped them with Endometriosis pain as well.
One of our customers has Endometriosis and turned to Nannocare to see if the NannoPad could help with her Endo pain each month.
"They definitely helped some with pain and circulation, and I have stage 4 endometriosis,” she said. “I’ve been telling all my endo friends and practitioners about Nannocare. I love the product."
If you’re experiencing debilitating pain in your pelvis, make sure you speak up at your next doctor’s appointment in order to get the treatment you need to live your life to the fullest.
