One in ten women suffers from severe period cramps. This is a sign of endometriosis, a condition when the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus grows outside the uterus. Such tissue is usually expelled in the menstrual cycle, but women who have endometriosis retain this tissue, leading to ovarian cysts, which are functional, benign or cancerous. Endometriosis causes severe pain before and after period as well as during sex and can lead to difficulty to conceive or infertility. It is a major cause of infertility among women in their late twenties or early thirties.
Do you suffer severe menstruation pain or do you know someone who does? Does sex hurt and are you having difficulty to conceive? Seek the advice of a gynaecologist for endometriosis may be your problem.
