We hear it far more often than we should. Many patients come to us knowing that there is a problem with their body but they don’t know what to do. They have been to three, five, maybe even seven different doctors looking for help. The sad part is endometriosis is much more common than people think it is and yet, doctors all over the world are still blind to it.
- Approximately 176 million women and girls worldwide suffer from endometriosis; 8.5 million in North America alone.
- Associated costs of the disease are estimated to be a staggering $22 billion annually.
- Endometriosis is one of the top three causes of female infertility. While it is one of the most treatable, it remains the least treated.
Women all over the world are being told that it is “just part of your menstrual cycle”, “just in your head”, or “not as bad as you’re making it out to be” by their doctors. Whether it be a misunderstanding about the disease, or lack of information, there are doctors out there that are turning women away left and right that have very treatable conditions.
