PART 3 - PLENTY OF QUESTIONS, VERY FEW DIRECT ANSWERS!

ENDOMETRIOSIS
WHAT WOULD I KNOW?


Here is probably the most common answer about Endometriosis you will hear, Women’s Problems!  Really?  Actually, the disease being Women’s Problems is not quite accurate as you will have read in my previous blog Part 2 What is Endometriosis?  There are in fact cases of men having this disease.  A large majority of men are fortunate they do not have the biological make up that would put 10 percent of men at risk.  However, rightly or wrongly Endometriosis is often referred to as Women’s Problems, and in this day and age it would be fair to say that an understanding of the disease for most people would stop at that. My initial understanding of it did.  With most conversations stopping there, it makes it difficult for Endometriosis to be known, let alone understood.  It is what I refer to as the Cave Man Explanation.
