Endometriosis causes a variety of symptoms from painful periods and backache to fertility problems. If you have painful periods and wonder if you might have endometriosis, or if you've already been diagnosed, you need the best possible information, help and support. This book aims to help you understand your symptoms, talk to your doctor without embarrassment, and it explains the tests and the treatment options. There's also sympathetic advice to help you cope with pain, deal with your own feelings about having endometriosis, and talk to your partner about how you feel.

"Women with endometriosis need simple, clear information to enable them to decide for themselves which kind of treatment may be right for them. This book is written in a clear question and answer format and covers everything from explanations of symptoms to treatments and self-help. A book aimed directly at women, in a language they can understand." - National Endometriosis Society
Press Reviews

Written with compassion, the book refers throughout to real-life stories. It provides a useful signpost for earlier diagnosis and effective treatment. This would be a valuable resource to help nurses identify women in need and offer practical advice. It would be a useful text for nurse education, especially in gynaecology, primary care and school nursing courses.
