💛Today’s post, in addition to a lot of information, also brings some of my experience.
💔I was diagnosed with Endometriosis when I was just 18 years old. I tried non-invasive treatments for 5 years.
💛In these 5 years one of the actions that helped me to deal with the symptoms were my pelvic exercises (Physio and Pilates in that time) and also keep me active – since I worked and studied every day and of course, the amazing support and treatment from my gynecologist @pitiacarita from Brazil❣️
💔Endometriosis gets its name from the word endometrium, the tissue that normally lines the uterus or womb. Endometriosis happens when tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside of your uterus and on other areas in your body where it doesn’t belong.
Endometriosis is a long-term condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb crowns in other places.
Most often, endometriosis is found on the:
- Fallopian tubes
- Tissues that hold the uterus in place
- Other surface of the uterus
Some of Endometriosis symptoms:
- Pain in lower tummy
- Lower Back pain
- Pelvic Pain
- Several period pain
- Pain during or after the sex
Consequences of the Endometriosis:
- May causes changes in bladder and bowel function
- In some cases it can cause infertility.
🧘♀️Staying active : Physical activity releases endorphins, which in turn improves the pain threshold.
🧘♀️Exercise can improve your blood circulation, bringing nutrients and oxygen to your organs and other body systems. In addition, exercise can reduce your oestrogen levels, a change that could be helpful in ameliorating endometriosis symptoms, as estrogen is linked to the inflammatory processes that cause pain in endometriosis.
❤️🩹A pelvic floor physical therapist can develop a customised plan for strengthening the muscles and ligaments around your bladder, vagina, and bowels to help you reduce pain and move better
💁🏼♀️It’s the reason than me with my knowledge in Hypopressives and Pilates can help you to live and reduce the symptoms of this hard moment
