Why men need to get serious about endometriosis?

I’ll be frank here – men need to get serious about endometriosis. Not only because endometriosis affected my wife, but because there’s a total disregard for female health issues in general by the medical industry. Endometriosis is a perfect example.

Endometriosis for Men

    It’s been estimated that 10% of women have endometriosis, yet it often takes years to get a diagnosis. Why? Because most doctors don’t know anything about it. They’re quick to dismiss it as “bad period pains” or “all in your head”.

    Even when women are finally diagnosed, they’re often told there’s no cure and they just have to deal with the pain. Well, there is no cure, but they surely should not put up with the pain.

    Endometriosis is a serious condition that can have a massive impact on a woman’s quality of life. But it also affects the partners of the women who suffer, especially men, often leading marriages to divorce. It’s time men got on board and started taking it seriously too.

    Men need to get serious about endometriosis. Here’s why:

    Endometriosis is a serious condition massively impacting women’s quality of life. It’s often misdiagnosed or dismissed by doctors. There is no cure for endometriosis and women suffer in silence. Endometriosis is a growing problem that often leads marriages to divorce.

    If you’re a man reading this, I hope you’ll take some time to educate yourself about endometriosis.

    Men should know endometriosis basics.

    So what is endometriosis?

    Put simply, it’s when the tissue that is similar to the one that lines the inside of the uterus, starts growing in other places.

    These growths are called “endometrial implants” or “lesions”, and they can be found anywhere in the pelvis – on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, outer surfaces of the uterus, the intestines, and even in the rectal cavity or bladder.

    Endometriosis can cause a range of symptoms, including:

    The pain can be so severe that it interferes with work, socializing, and daily activities. In fact, endometriosis is one of the leading causes of absenteeism from work.

    So why aren’t men taking it seriously?

    Well, for one thing, endometriosis is still seen as a “woman’s issue”. It’s something that happens to women and is therefore their responsibility to deal with.

    This is nonsense.

    Endometriosis does not just affect women – it affects families, friendships, jobs, and relationships. It’s time men started taking some responsibility and got educated about the condition.

    Men aren’t the only ones who need to be better informed about endometriosis. The whole medical industry needs to do a better job of educating both doctors and patients about the condition. In the meantime, men can play a vital role in spreading awareness and understanding of this illness.

    Men aren’t taking endometriosis seriously for many reasons – because it’s seen as a “woman’s issue”, because there’s a lack of understanding about the condition, and because the medical industry isn’t doing enough to educate people.

    Apart from that, male partners can often be dismissive of their partner’s pain, telling them to “get over it” or that it’s “all in their head”. This is not only unhelpful but can also be very hurtful.

    It’s time for men to start taking endometriosis seriously. Educate yourself about the condition and spread awareness to help break the stigma. Let’s create a better future for all women affected by this debilitating disease.

    The lack of understanding, a lack of education, and oftentimes, total ignorance of male partners is what leads to the dismissal of endometriosis as “just bad period pains”. But this also leads to a very, 75% high endometriosis divorce rate.

    It’s high time men changed their tune.

      The endometriosis divorce rate.

      The reason why the endometriosis divorce rate is as high as 75 percent is that men don’t take the disease seriously. They think that endometriosis pain is just “bad period pains” and that it’s nothing to worry about.

      This couldn’t be further from the truth. Endometriosis is a serious condition that often leads to infertility, chronic pain, and a host of other problems.

      If men took the time to educate themselves about endometriosis, they would realize that this is a serious disease that needs to be taken seriously.

      So, men, it’s time to get serious about endometriosis.

      I’m the prime example that the endometriosis divorce rate can be avoided. My wife asked me to divorce her on five separate occasions. This never came from me. She always suggested that we get a divorce thinking that I could have a much better life with another woman.

      I never divorced her because I understood what she was going through. I educated myself on the disease and did everything I could to support her.

      But I went even a mile worth of steps further – I started a blog to help men understand how to support their partner with endometriosis. As a result, we’re still happily married and our blog has helped countless men understand endometriosis and how to support their partner.

      If men took the time to educate themselves about endometriosis and provided the support that their partners need, the endometriosis divorce rate would be significantly lower.

      So men, if you’re reading this, it’s time to get serious about endometriosis. Educate yourself about the condition and do everything you can to support your partner. It’s the least you can do.

      I’m here to tell you, that most probably, without you even realizing, your wife, or girlfriend feels like a burden to you, and most likely she has thousands of thoughts of self-doubt, self-harm, and even suicidal thoughts.

      Suicidal thoughts and self-harm.

      My wife tried to commit suicide on numerous occasions. Luckily, my presents, my love for her, and my care stopped her from going through with it.

      It’s men like me that need to stand up and show other men that endometriosis is a serious issue. We need to educate ourselves and provide the support that our partners need.

      Endometriosis is a serious condition that often leads to infertility, chronic pain, and a host of many other problems. If men took the time to educate themselves about endometriosis, they would save their women from a lot of heartache, pain, and suffering.

      So men, please, get serious about endometriosis and do everything you can to support your women.

      Self-harm because of endometriosis does not always mean cuts, burns, or bruises. It also means, working yourself to death, pushing your body past its limits, skipping meals, and not taking care of yourself because you feel like you’re not worth it.

      Endometriosis is a serious condition that men need to get serious about. I know firsthand how much pain and suffering this disease can cause. Suicidal thoughts are very common, yet not noticed by the medical industry, society, or even family and friends.

      Suicide attempts because of chronic illnesses like endometriosis or fibromyalgia are real, and men need to be aware of the warning signs. These warning signs may include:

      • withdrawing from friends and family
      • talking about feeling hopeless or trapped
      • increasing alcohol or drug abuse
      • giving away prized possessions
      • saying goodbye to people
      • putting affairs in order

      How can men help?

      There are a few things men can do to help women with endometriosis:

      Because men cannot experience endometriosis themselves, they are often in a unique position to offer support to the women in their lives who are affected by the condition. This includes being understanding and patient, listening to their concerns, and offering practical help where possible.

      The more you know, the better equipped you’ll be to support your partner.

      • Talk to your partner about her symptoms and how they’re affecting her. Showing that you care and are willing to listen will mean a lot.
      • Encourage her to see a doctor. Getting an official diagnosis is important so that appropriate treatment can be sought.
      • If your partner is going through fertility treatment, offer moral support. This can be a tough and emotionally charged time.

      How else can men help?

      Raising awareness is vital to breaking the taboo around endometriosis. The more people that know about the condition, the more likely it is that research will be funded and progress made in finding a cure.

      There are lots of ways men can help raise awareness:

      • Talk about endometriosis with your friends, family, and colleagues.
      • Share articles and information about the condition on social media.
      • Write to your local representatives and tell them why more needs to be done to support women with endometriosis.
      • Make a donation to a charity working to raise awareness or fund research into the condition.

      Male partners can play an important role in supporting women with endometriosis. Showing understanding and patience, offering practical help, and raising awareness can all make a difference.

      Let’s work together to break the taboo around this debilitating condition.

        Wrapping up why men need to get serious about endometriosis!

        Endometriosis is a chronic and often painful condition that affects women of reproductive age. It occurs when the tissue similar to the one that lines the uterus (endometrium) grows outside of it, onto other organs in the pelvic area, and eventually, beyond.

        Endometriosis is a whole-bodied chronic condition that can cause severe pain, cramping, heavy bleeding, and even infertility.

        Despite its prevalence, endometriosis is often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.

        This is in part due to the lack of awareness about the condition, as well as the fact that symptoms can mimic other conditions. For men, it’s especially important to be aware of endometriosis and its potential effects on their partner’s health.

        While endometriosis primarily affects women, it can also have a significant impact on men. This is because the condition can cause fertility problems, which can in turn affect a couple’s ability to conceive. In addition, men may feel helpless and frustrated watching their partners suffer from the pain and other symptoms of endometriosis.

        Fortunately, there are things that men can do to support their partner and help her manage the condition.

        One of the most important things is to educate yourself about endometriosis. This way, you’ll be able to better understand what your partner is going through and offer her the support she needs.

        Additionally, you can encourage your partner to see a doctor so that she can get an accurate diagnosis and treatment. If you’re in a relationship with a woman with endometriosis, remember that you are not alone.

        There are many resources and support groups available to help you both cope with the condition, but your presence and support can make all the difference. Thanks for reading!
