Endometriosis is not restricted to your pelvic cavity.
Endometriosis can infect your pelvic cavity and is routinely found on the ovaries, the bladder, the bowel, the uterus, the fallopian tubes, etc. It is also found on other organs, such as the liver. It can grow and spread on the diaphragm and lungs, and even enter a woman’s lungs, causing regular collapsed lungs or coughing up blood. Rare cases of Endometriosis have been diagnosed on the brain, heart, eyes, skin, and even inside the spinal cord.
This disease is not restricted to the gynecological interest. It should not be known as just a “period disease.” All areas of the body can be affected. Ongoing research to better understand this incredibly invasive disease. One day we will have answers. And hopefully a cure.
