Endometriosis?

They always say “Girl Power”, and for me, it is exceptionally prominent during that special time of the month. If you know what I’m talking about, and have once experienced that awful thing called “menstrual cramp”, you would definitely agree with me. A couple of weeks back, I had the opportunity to attend a talk by Dr Yong Yoke Fai from NUHS and learnt more about how menstrual cramps could just be one of the many symptoms of more serious problems like endometriosis. Immediately after the talk, I shared the information I’ve learnt with A, and it was only then when I found out that she actually had this same condition a few years back before I met her. Why curl up in bed and suffer in silence? 😦 Let me share what I’ve learnt with you!
