What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue that normally resides inside the uterus grows outside the uterus.

This tissue can attach to organs in the pelvic area, such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes, and cause pain and inflammation.

Symptoms of endometriosis can include pelvic pain, cramping, and heavy or irregular periods.

Treatment for endometriosis typically includes medications, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and hormonal therapy, to manage pain and reduce the size of the growths.

In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove the growths and alleviate symptoms.

It is important to note that Endometriosis can be difficult to diagnose and it is frequently overlooked by doctors, as symptoms can be similar to those of other conditions, such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

If you are experiencing symptoms that may be indicative of endometriosis, it is important to consult with your healthcare provider for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Risk of Uterine Cancer, Endometriosis, and Health Problems from Hair Relaxer Products

Multiple scientific studies have linked endocrine disrupting chemicals found in chemical hair relaxers and hair straightening products to an increased risk of uterine cancer and other health problems.

The National Institute Of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), a division of the National Cancer Institute, conducted a health study for more than a decade called the “Sister Study“, which originally looked at risk factors for breast cancer.
