Symptoms of Endometriosis may be:
Menstrual cramps, significant pelvic pain especially on your period, depending on the area of growth: pain with bowel movements, pain with intercourse, pain with urination, heavy flow / heavy bleeding on your period, sometimes bleeding between periods, infertility, difficulty to get pregnant and miscarriage, PMS.
The gold standard diagnosis is laparoscopy which is a surgical procedure inserting a camera to your pelvic area through your belly button. Sounds fun? You may not have to go through this if you don’t want to.
One in three women with Endometriosis don’t actually show symptoms or don’t show symptoms as severe. In order to get appropriately diagnosed, you need to find yourself a curious regulated and licensed Naturopathic Doctor that will listen to you, map your concerns and dig deep into your hormone imbalances. An experienced practitioner will be able to utilize physical exams as well as blood work in order to rule it in.
