Endometriosis Awareness Week
Endometriosis Awareness Week aims to raise awareness about this hidden and often unrecognized condition. Endometriosis is a long term (Chronic) condition. About 2 million women in the UK have endometriosis. Most of them are diagnosed between the ages of 25 and 40.
Endometriosis is a common condition where tissue that behaves like the lining of the womb (the endometrium) is found outside the womb. This is usually in ovaries and/or fallopian tubes, in the pelvis behind your uterus, your bowel or bladder. The causes of endometriosis aren’t fully known, even though it’s fairly common.
From symptoms like heavy periods to bleeding between periods, endometriosis can impact life in several ways. But one of the most limiting symptoms for many women is pain in the abdomen, pelvis & lower back and pain during periods.
Tens Care’s Ova+ Period Pain reliever offers a completely natural relief from pain related to endometriosis.
Typical treatment for Endometriosis consists of non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs or the oral contraceptive pill, all of which work by reducing the activity of the uterine muscle. The Ova+ uses TENS which, rather than reducing uterine muscle activity, works by altering the body’s ability both to receive and to perceive pain signals. Endometriosis sufferers feel that the Ova+ takes the edge off the pain and makes life more tolerable.
