How to cope with Endometriosis

Don’t know what Endometriosis is? Check out Lifting the Lid on Endometriosis

Painful Periods are NOT normal. If you have periods that are so painful that they affect your daily activity, go to your doctor urgently and do not give up until you receive help and support.

Endometriosis is an inflammatory chronic condition. Unfortunately there is no complete cure, and some things will work better for some people and not work at all for others. However, here are my own tried and tested coping techniques for this incredibly painful condition.

🍵 green tea has been found in some studies to have a positive impact on those with endometriosis 

❤️‍🔥 everyone knows how comforting a hot water bottle can be, and it is a reliable aid for any cramp

⚡️ I CANNOT begin to express how much of a life saver my tens machine has been! This post is not sponsored by @ovira but they are a wonderful company I use my ovira tens machine every day, it helps my chronic joint pain as well as my Endometriosis pain. Shop for your own here!

☀️ I am sure many of you are aware how beneficial Vitamin C, Magnesium, and Vitamin D are in general, but they are also wonderful for Endometriosis! Starflower oil is another supplement that many find helpful.

🍣 eating a diet of nuts, seeds, avocado, fatty fish and other anti-inflammatory food can lower inflammation and strengthen your immune system! 

💦 drink more water! A reminder we always need, or at least I do!

❗️When I say women/female I mean the literal definition, those with female anatomy. This includes trans men, intersex people, and nonbinary people.

International Women’s Day

March is Endometriosis Awareness month, one of the most painful conditions in the world that effects 190 million women worldwide. Learn more about it here

Here’s to taking up space. Here’s to using exclamation marks in emails without shame. Here’s to loving things so much you can’t not talk about them!!! 🥂 

Feminism isn’t about the ideal of who you should be, or about taking advantage of the opportunities that women before us didn’t have, it’s about doing whatever you want to do because you are able to choose 🎠 

Today, #InternationalWomensDay , is about raising awareness for the fact that SO MANY women still don’t have a choice. So if you do, choose to advocate for all women’s rights, not just those who look like you and share your experiences. But most importantly, choose rest, choose joy, choose looking after yourself 💛
