Two New Books Added to Library

BU Library

So I’ve finished reading two of my newest books about Endometriosis and they’re available for check-out from our Library.

Doc Will See You Now

The Doctor Will See You Now by Dr. Tamer Seckin (the co-founder of The Endometriosis Foundation of America), published in 2016.  If you would prefer to purchase your own copy of this book, a portion of the proceeds goes to The EFA and it can be found on Amazon here.

Summary : Endometriosis materializes when the endometrium – the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus – sheds, but does not exit a woman’s body during her period. Instead, it grows outside of the uterus, spreading to organs and nerves in and around the pelvic region. The resulting pain is so physically and emotionally insufferable that it can mercilessly dominate a woman’s life. The average woman with endometriosis is twenty-seven years old before she is diagnosed. It is one of the top three causes of female infertility. The pain it emits can affect a woman’s career, social life, relationships, sexual activity, sleep, and diet. It is incurable, but highly treatable. Unfortunately, though, it is rarely treated in a timely manner, if at all, because of misdiagnoses and/or a lack of education among those in the medical community.

This book gives hope to everyone connected to endometriosis. That includes every woman and young girl who has it, and the women and men in their lives – the mothers, fathers, husbands, children, and friends – who know something is wrong, but do not know what it is or what to do about it. This book is written at a level that everyone with ties to this disease can relate to and understand, but it is also for doctors with good intentions who lack the knowledge of how to diagnose or treat it.

The Doctor Will See You Now is for women determined to let the world know their stories so that every woman with this disease – from the thirteen-year-old girl who is being told that her pain is “part of becoming a woman” to the woman who has been misdiagnosed for decades – knows she is not alone.

Yes, her pain is real.

No, she is not crazy.

Yes, there is hope.

endo comprehensive

Endometriosis A Comprehensive Update (Springers Briefs in Reproductive Biology) by Sajal Gupta, Avi Harlev, and Ashok Agarwal, published in 2015.  It’s a review of science, literature, and medical breakthroughs about Endometriosis, complete with several theories on the development of Endometriosis and how best to treat it.  Although very medical & sciencey, I enjoyed this read very much.

Summary:  This Springer Brief provides an update on endometriosis research — from the underlying mechanisms, predisposing factors, role of environmental pollutants, treatment options, impact on quality of life, and biomarkers, to emerging treatment modalities in order to help clinicians to pursue a patient-centered approach in managing the disease. This book provides clinicians with a better insight into early diagnosis and management of endometriosis. It explores the possible identification of proteins in different types of endometriosis diseases and at different stages of the progression.  This may aid in the discovery of potential biomarkers for non-invasive diagnosis of these diseases. The ability to identify a protein, common between women of different races, ages and in different regions of the world will hopefully contribute to improving women’s health worldwide.
