Why as a husband I blog about endometriosis?
Endometriosis is a debilitating and often painful disease that can have a significant impact on a woman’s quality of life. I blog about endometriosis in order to raise awareness about this little-known but very important condition.
By sharing my wife’s story, I hope to help others who may be suffering from endometriosis or other chronic illnesses. I also want to show that it is possible to live a fulfilling and happy life despite having a chronic illness.
Endometriosis is a condition that affects millions of women around the world, yet it is still relatively unknown. I believe that by sharing my wife’s story, I can help to raise awareness about this condition and help others who may be suffering in silence.
What is endometriosis anyway?
Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that is similar to the one that lines the inside of the uterus, called “endometrium”, grows outside of the uterus. This can cause a lot of pain, even infertility.
Endometriosis most commonly affects women in their 30s and 40s, but it can occur at any age. It is estimated that up to 10% of women worldwide suffer from endometriosis. I believe that the real number is much higher because many women don’t even know they have it.
Those who suffer know that there is no cure for endometriosis, but there are treatments that can help to manage their symptoms. These often include medications, surgery, and lifestyle changes.
Endometriosis has stages and types. I’ll go into more detail about that in another article, for now, I want to share my wife’s story and why I blog about endometriosis.
Why do I blog about endometriosis?
I started this blog because I am a man, and I found on my journey of blogging that most men don’t understand endometriosis. They often feel left out and marginalized because the society we live in talks about this disease that predominantly affects women.
But it also affects their men. I want to help change that.
I also started this blog because there is a 75% high endometriosis divorce rate. My wife and I also encountered a lot of struggles in our marriage because of endometriosis.
Not only did my wife ask me on numerous occasions to divorce her thinking that I could have a better life with someone else, but she also tried to commit suicide because of this insidious condition.
I’ve spoken to many women (I’ve lost count) who told me about the challenges they experienced trying to keep their men. Their relationships, even marriages fell apart. I know how endometriosis can break relationships.
I blog about endometriosis to show men that they are not alone. I want to help them understand what their wives go through on a daily basis. I also want to show men that it is possible to have a happy and fulfilling relationship even when one partner has a chronic illness.
I want to help change that high endometriosis divorce rate and help broken relationships get back on track. I believe that by sharing my wife’s story and our journey, I can make a difference.
Why do I blog about her endometriosis?
My wife also suffers from fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome. So why do I blog about her endometriosis?
Firstly, endometriosis is her primary condition. Because it took chances of my wife ever becoming a mother. I blog about her endometriosis because fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome are often seen as “lesser” conditions.
But I believe that all chronic illnesses are equally important. I blog about her endometriosis to show that even though she suffers from multiple chronic illnesses, she is still a strong and amazing woman.
I want to help break the stigma around chronic illness and show that even though life may be different with a chronic illness, it can still be fulfilling and happy.
Endometriosis is a female condition, whereas fibromyalgia and CFS also affect men. I blog about her endometriosis to help bring awareness to this often-ignored condition. I also want to show other men that they shout support their women against all odds.
I blog about her endometriosis because I want to help find a cure. I want to show the world that even though she suffers from a chronic illness, she is still living her life to the fullest. I want to help spread awareness and funds for research so that one day we can find a cure for this debilitating disease.
I blog about her endometriosis because I love her. I want to support her in any way I can. I want to help make her journey a little bit easier.
If you are the husband of a woman suffering from endometriosis, I want you to know that I’m here for you. I definitely understand what you are going through. I even wrote a book dedicated to all of the men who want to learn more about endometriosis and how to support their women.

Endometriosis e-Book for Men
Why do I blog about her illness?
For the same reasons. It doesn’t matter if it’s fibromyalgia or endometriosis, they both affected my wife, but they both are chronic conditions. This book applies to a wider audience because doesn’t focus solely on one condition. Many people will relate to the other book.
I also wrote another book outlining the topic of supporting a chronically ill partner. “Supporting a Chronically Ill Partner” applies to those who struggle to cope with the support of their chronically ill loved one.
This matters because like endometriosis, in general, there isn’t much information for caregivers who support their loved ones, and it is important for the relationship to survive to have an idea of how to deal with the challenges.
This book is for male partners who care for their chronically ill women. It is a step-by-step guide on how to build a successful relationship despite chronic illness.
