What do I need to know about caring for someone with endometriosis?

You can care for your loved one with endometriosis by providing them with the support and help they need. Be sure that they use their pain relievers and hormone therapies in a timely manner in order to avoid pain and heavy bleeding. They can use household items like a heating pad or a bath to relieve the pains of cramping. If they are awaiting surgery, be sure that they follow the indications regarding preparation. They may also want to join an endometriosis group in order to find support and company in their illness. No matter the severity of your loved one's case, be sure that they do seek medical treatment for their symptoms since untreated endometriosis can cause serious complications later on.
