The Illness of Unloved Women can affect all women aged between 15 and 50 years. Here’s how to recognize it.

The ‘illness of unloved women’ is the colloquial name for endometriosis, a gynecological condition that affects women aged between 15 and 50 years.

Find out below how to recognize it! Endometriosis is a painful condition characterized by the fact that cells from the uterus implant themselves outside of it.

Usually, they end up in the ovaries or intestines, but in rare cases, they can also appear in the pelvic region. In the case of the ‘illness of unloved women,’ the endometrial cells behave as if they were in the uterus, so they thin, break, and bleed with each menstruation.

Because the tissue that forms has no way out, it remains trapped, leading to the formation of cysts or lesions that bind organs together.

How to tell if you have endometriosis

Endometriosis causes pain, sometimes severe, especially during menstruation. During this period, both stool and urination can be accompanied by discomfort.

Pain during sexual intercourse is another sign that you might be suffering from the ‘illness of unloved women.’ In some cases, there may also be bleeding between periods, fatigue, diarrhea, constipation, bloating, or nausea.

Endometriosis is most often diagnosed in women seeking treatment for infertility. Indeed, it has been called the ‘illness of unloved women’ because many patients can no longer have children and end up isolating themselves.

Go to the doctor if you have any of these symptoms. The sooner you discover it, the more you avoid the appearance of complications.
