Left undiagnosed or untreated, endometriosis can be a frustrating condition. Painful periods can cause you to miss work or school and can strain relationships. Recurring pain can lead to depression, irritability, anxiety, anger, and feelings of helplessness. Infertility linked to endometriosis also can cause emotional distress. That’s why it’s important to seek treatment if you suspect you may have endometriosis. Keeping a record (pain journal) of your symptoms can aid your doctor in your diagnosis.
Finding appropriate help and support from those who have experienced similar symptoms is essential. The Endometriosis Research Center of Greater Seattle is just the resource!
Joining our group is FREE. We would love to meet you! Join the ERC of Greater Seattle
