This is a disease that can cause severe pain, and for now, has no cure. For many women, choosing the right specialist who fully understands the disease, and how seemingly unrelated symptoms are connected due to the unpredictable nature of endometriosis.

Fibroid growth is unpredictable, and they can get very large very fast in some women. Many times doctors will tell a patient to watch and wait, rather than perform surgery. Women who could have treated smaller fibroids early on can actually face distortion of the uterus causing problems with getting pregnant, carrying a child to term, or have increased risks of requiring a hysterectomy.

Long standing conditions like endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts, pelvic adhesions and other conditions often take a back seat to everything else, that is until they can no longer be ignored.
