Ever since I can remember, once a month, I would be down for the count! I couldn’t understand why I was in so much pelvic pain. At times, the pain would be so severe it was hard to get out of bed and nothing seemed to help. You might have guessed that this pain coincided with my period! What I’m dealing with is called endometriosis. Many women with this condition may not have symptoms, while others, like me, suffer with severe pelvic pain. This pain often gets worse during menstruation.
If any of you suffer from pain which may be from endometriosis, please know you are not alone. I know how excruciatingly painful it can be, and how discouraging the disease can be. I do believe women should know about all treatment options available to them and speak with your doctor to determine what is right for them!

Every woman has a different diagnosis experience and may go through one or more of these steps: pelvic exam, ultrasound, blood test, treatment or a surgical procedure called laparoscopy. While there’s currently no cure for endometriosis, there are treatment options.

Every woman is different and it’s important to speak to your healthcare provider about treatment options that could work for you, including holistic approaches, such as changes in diet or acupuncture, medications or surgery.
An estimated one in 10 women of reproductive age have endometriosis, so if you believe you may be suffering from endometriosis you aren’t alone.
If you are diagnosed with endometriosis, talk to your doctor about your options. One treatment option you may want to learn about so you can talk to your doctor about it is ORILISSA® (elagolix). ORILISSA is for women 18 and over with moderate to severe endometriosis pain and is another treatment option to help manage this disease.
If you’re experiencing endo pain, it’s important to let your doctor know so they can help you manage your symptoms.
