Endometriosis Awareness

What is this chronic inflammatory disease? 🎗️Commonly known as Endo for short. Endometriosis is when body tissue (similar to the lining of the uterus) grows in other parts of the body. 1 in 7 women/people assigned female at birth (AFAB) in Australia suffer from Endometriosis. It is commonly found in the pelvic region but can grow in any part of the body. There is NO known cure for this horrible disease and symptoms will vary for each person, the stage of Endometriosis does not define the severity of ones pain/symptoms. 

Endometriosis can cause chronic pain, especially during menstrual periods however IS NOT a period disease. It has many other common symptoms such as:

🎗️ Painful intercourse (during & after)

🎗️ Pain with bowel movements or urination

🎗️ Excessive bleeding (with or without a period)

🎗️ Infertility problems as a result

The pain is often described by sufferers as feeling like they are being stabbed, a throbbing sensation or burning from the inside. It can even be so severe that it impacts daily life, affecting work, relationships, and mental well-being. For so long, sufferers have struggled in silence due to the lack of awareness on the topic and the difficult task of diagnosis. At this stage, the only chance of a 100% accurate diagnosis is through laparoscopic surgery. Sadly this is the result of a lack of funding and research for Endometriosis. 💔

That is why $2.00 From our Endo Warrior Products are donated to The Pelvic Pain Foundation for funding towards research to educating teens around pelvic pain and Endometriosis. Join us in the fight towards creating awareness for this nasty disease so that others don't need to suffer the way so many of us have already.
