Many people have complications from having endometriosis undiagnosed for a long time. It can go undiagnosed for a long time because a lot of women experience difficulty communicating the severity of their symptoms and this can be brushed under the rug of ‘women’s problems’ or part and parcel with menstruation. Endometriosis is a serious ailment that can be excruciatingly painful and it should not be ignored by MDs. Early diagnosis would mean that women could get the medical treatment or the holistic help as soon as possible and reduce scarring and years of pain and suffering. EmpressBody has put together three of the most common warning signs that your period pain may be Endometriosis, this can help you seek help as soon as possible, we have also included our recommended holistic treatment for Endo.

1. Pain is interfering with your day-to-day life
Many of us experience period pain, also known as menstrual cramps, at some point in our lives, but it usually goes away and doesn’t hinder us from living our lives. However, if you are experiencing extreme pain every month that stops you from concentrating, walking or working, you may have endometriosis. If this sounds like you, you may want to look into it.

2. You get pain throughout the month
Endo pain is related to your hormonal cycle, but that doesn't mean that it'll only affect you one week out of four – in fact, for some women, their period is a relief, because their pain actually lessens at this time. Endometriosis is notoriously difficult to diagnose, so having as much info and research to hand as possible can help them to identify the cause of your symptoms and offer the right kind of treatment for your needs.

3. You have pain after sex
Did you know 75% of women will have painful sex in their lifetime? That’s a lot of us. It begs the questions, how many of us are experiencing painful sex with endometriosis? And have perhaps just given up having sex or self-pleasure full stop. Pain during sex is a common symptom of endometriosis. Penetration and other movements related to intercourse can pull and stretch endometrial tissue, particularly if it has grown behind the vagina or lower uterus. Not every woman with the condition experiences pain during sex. Those who do may experience the following:
· pain that is acute or feels like stabbing
· pain deep in the abdomen
· pain ranging from mild to severe
This pain varies from person to person and may depend on the type of intercourse. Some experience pain only during deep penetration, for example, while others experience pain after sex, rather than during it.

The EmpressBody Detox Pearls
The Detox Pearls can help ease the symptoms of endometriosis as they EmpressBody pearls work by the specially selected herbs creating a pulling effect that draws toxins, bad bacteria, dead cells, old blood clots, mucus and more from your yoni, while at the same time tightening your yoni and deterring vaginal dryness and other ailments. In particular, the pearls help to regulate the menstrual cycle correctly as endometriosis causes retrograde menstruation, where the blood does not flow out of the body as it should, this is one of the main theories as to why women have endometriosis. The pearls also help to flush out the endometrial tissue that is deposited in locations they shouldn't be e.g. the outside of the womb and uterus.
Because every woman is so beautifully unique we do tell everyone that their relief may differ from other women, but we generally advise women with endometriosis to complete a full detox of 24 pearls back to back. This means inserting 6 pearls over a course of 24 days, leaving each detox pearl in for 3 days and not just 2 days to help with the endometriosis.
