These endo memes, or memes for endometriosis, focus on a topic that many of us have experienced from time to time in our journey towards understanding and diagnosis: the awkward conversation with physicians. Many times the patient and physician relationship is one of mutual respect and trust. You the patient seeks the care and help of a physician who has the compassion, knowledge and skill to offer you help, and you experience an ideal outcome.

However, this is not always the case. Seeking professional help when we know something is wrong but can’t quite convey that in a way our medical professional gets can be so disheartening.

What is endometriosis?

Basically, endometriosis is when cells grow outside of the uterus where they do not belong. The condition may be caused by genetics, immune dysregulation, gut and hormonal imbalances, poor nutrition and other causes. Women in the endometriosis community may describe an endo flare-up when they experience symtpoms.

Prevalence

Roughly 1 in 10 women in the US have this condition with other countries reporting similar rates.

Diagnosis

Many women try for years to get a diagnosis explaining their symptoms. Laparoscopy is the only official way Western medicine has to diagnose this condition.

Awareness Month

March is Endometriosis Awareness Month.
