One of the changes many women with endometriosis experience is weight gain. Weight gain has not been found to be a direct symptom of endometriosis.

1. Endo-belly. It’s definitely the first symptom we want to get rid of. It doesn’t feel good having to buy larger clothes and being asked when your due. 2. Back pain. It makes doing anything tough when it incredibly hard and painful in getting around. 3. While this doesn’t happen in...

Endometriosis is like an Iceberg. An Iceberg has over 90% of its mass below the surface. Meaning that you don’t see 90% of the iceberg. This is a good metaphor for Endometriosis as its effects are not always outward facing. You don’t necessarily know all the symptoms that someone...
