Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue similar to the lining inside the uterus, is found outside the uterus, where it induces a chronic inflammatory reaction that may result in scar tissue.
Endometriosis affects an estimated 1 in 10 women during their reproductive years, which is approximately 176 million women in the world.
The symptoms of endometriosis include painful periods, painful ovulation, pain during or after sexual intercourse, heavy bleeding, chronic pelvic pain, fatigue, and infertility, and can impact on general physical, mental, and social well being
Due to a general lack of awareness by healthcare providers, it takes an average of 7 years for a diagnosis.
The disease can impact all aspects of life—school, career, finances, relationships, and overall well-being. The symptoms may be so severe that individuals miss out on school, work, sports, or social events.
There is no cure for endometriosis at this time but CBD has been a game changer for women who are looking for natural options for pain management. Lara Parker, author of Vagina Problems, recommends Mad Ritual CBD Relief Rubs as a product to have on hand.
