eXtra Points that an endometriosis patient must bear in mind #ENDOCHAMPIONS


Will you believe me if I tell you The diagnostic delay of endometriosis averages between seven to nine years globally? Yes, these are the figures stated in the work published here and I am not surprised because I myself took a decade to know that I have endometriosis, well the reasons were multiple. Period pain is considered, no matter how severe it is, very normal in our society, and even my how had it so I thought I just have to live with it. Later about seven to eight doctors withdrew my request by Judy saying that it is nothing or asking me to plan a second kid or just keep popping OCPs.

But this caused me a lifetime of pain and my disease aggravated to a very advanced stage. 

So the extra yet most important point I want every girl and every woman to always remember is never to take your periods' pain normally if it is disrupting your normal life. The earlier you get the disease diagnosed, the more your chances of living disease free for the rest of your life. 

It also affects our fertility so it is extremely vital that even if the doctor isn’t asking you request her or him to get your ultrasound done to check the endometrial thickness and correlate the symptoms appropriately.

Point number two remember don’t jump on hormonal treatment straight away, the cost you pay is huge in terms of permanent side effects to your body.

Try alternate medicine like Ayurveda or homeopathy first.

Always keep surgeries as your last resort. My personal experience says that our body ages by ten years post every surgery, I have had three major ones and I know the trauma and the cost I am paying today. 

Never forget an alternate medicine that is perfect for someone else may not suit you and you will have to try different combinations before giving up because every patient has their own symptoms and body type, hence with alternate medicine be patient. 

Also, support your alternate medication with a very healthy lifestyle, move, walk, laugh, enrich yourself, and eat right and the combination shall heal you like nothing else. 

Most importantly please steer clear of all the people around you who cast negative energies on you. It only increases our stress and stress is known to aggravate our disease severalfold. Instead be in the company of people who love you and may try to help someone, the joy, and contentment you get by simply listening and helping someone in need shall not only help you heal better but also enrich you in several ways. Trust me these extra points are worth reminding ourselves again n again.


You too can become an #ENDOCHAMPION and help us spread awareness about this whole body inflammation by sharing our posts and connecting with anyone in need. Trust me together we can make a big difference because this disease and its ignorance can be really harsh and as a patient, I myself have contemplated suicide several times and would like to save many others from the agony. You can join the support group by clicking here: Endometriosis Awareness and Support Group India
