A Journey to Empathy
60-minute webinar / in-person presentation
Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb grows in other places such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes. It can affect women of any age and is a long-term condition that can cause pelvic pain, heavy painful periods, painful bowel movements, and painful intercourse, and may result in potential infertility.
Adenomyosis is a similar condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb grows into the muscular wall of the uterus. It is commonly diagnosed in women over the age of 30 but can affect anyone who has periods. It can cause pelvic pain, painful heavy menstrual bleeding, and an enlarged uterus.
