Endometriosis

How does exercise help endometriosis?

A Answers (2)

  • Exercise can theoretically decrease your risk of inflammatory disorders, including endometriosis. However, limited studies have been done on the topic, and no evidence has yet been found that endometriosis can be prevented or treated by exercise.
  • Researchers have found that regular exercise can help to prevent endometriosis. In fact, girls who begin to exercise regularly before the age of 15 are less likely to develop endometriosis. Regular exercise entails more than 4 hours a week of moderate exercise.
