Endometriosis Awareness Month: Taking Control of your Hormones - Part 1

Taking Control of your Hormones - Part 1

Did you know that endometriosis, a complex and often misunderstood condition, affects a staggering 10% of women worldwide? Approximately 180 million women suffer with its challenges. Despite its widespread impact, the precise cause remains unknown, making it a critical issue deserving of our attention. 

In this guide, we delve into the mysteries of endometriosis, exploring its potential triggers, common symptoms, and the best strategies for managing this condition.

Let's embrace this journey together and empower ourselves with knowledge!

Exploring Potential Triggers:

Endometriosis is a complex and puzzling chronic condition marked by the growth of tissue that mimics the lining of the uterus, occurring outside the uterus itself. 

The exact reasons behind its development are not entirely clear, but factors such as genetics, alterations in the immune system, and a phenomenon known as retrograde menstruation are thought to be involved. 

What is retrograde menstruation? To paint a picture: imagine during your period, some of the tissue from your womb takes an unexpected journey, not just flowing down to the usual place but also making its way up through the fallopian tubes, sticking where it shouldn't. This displaced tissue behaves as if it's still in the womb, resulting in a monthly bleed. 

While there is no single leading cause, several theories and factors are associated with the development of endometriosis. The complexities of these triggers add to the enigma of endometriosis, and much remains unknown about how these factors intertwine! 

Nonetheless, a few recognised triggers associated with endometriosis include:

  • Excess oestrogen

  • Genetics

  • Compromised gut

  • Poor liver detoxification

  • Inflammation & oxidative stress

  • Altered immune system

  • Dioxins (pesticides on fruit and animal products)

  • Environmental oestrogens (food, cosmetics, cleaning products etc)

Fortunately, many of these triggers are within your control. As we celebrate Endometriosis Awareness Month, our goal is to empower you, providing the confidence and tools to tackle your symptoms head on and send them packing!

Common Symptoms:

Endometriosis presents itself in many ways, affecting individuals uniquely. While some endure debilitating symptoms, others remain undetected for years, and some fall in between, triggered by specific factors. Here are some frequently reported symptoms:

  • Infertility

  • Pelvic pain

  • Lower back pain

  • Painful, heavy periods

  • Pain during or after sex

  • Constipation to diarrhoea

  • Bloating or nausea

  • Fatigue/lack of energy

Understanding these signs is key to early recognition and seeking appropriate care.
