Publisher's Summary

Endometriosis materializes when the endometrium - the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus - sheds, but does not exit a woman's body during her period. Instead, it grows outside of the uterus, spreading to organs and nerves in and around the pelvic region. The resulting pain is so physically and emotionally insufferable that it can mercilessly dominate a woman's life. The average woman with endometriosis is 27 years old before she is diagnosed. It is one of the top three causes of female infertility. The pain it emits can affect a woman's career, social life, relationships, sexual activity, sleep, and diet. It is incurable, but highly treatable. Unfortunately, though, it is rarely treated in a timely manner, if at all, because of misdiagnoses and/or a lack of education among those in the medical community.

This book gives hope to everyone connected to endometriosis. That includes every woman and young girl who has it, and the women and men in their lives who know something is wrong, but do not know what it is or what to do about it. This book is written at a level that everyone with ties to this disease can relate to and understand, but it is also for doctors with good intentions who lack the knowledge of how to diagnose or treat it.

Critic Reviews

"This comprehensive text, as the author hopes, is likely to raise awareness among other physicians and among general readers, particularly women who will now have the knowledge necessary to become powerful self-advocates." ( Publishers Weekly)

I LEARNED SO MUCH!

Finally! Someone who knows about Endometriosis!! This book was life changing and I felt comforted knowing that I am not alone. Dr.Seckin is the doctor you wish you had. I’m going to gift all of my past doctors this book. May they learn and grow from it. Every Endometriosis patient and their loved ones needs to read this.

learned a lot

I learned so much from this book. I have Endometriosis and I feel like reading this book helped me know how to talk to my doctors about it and get the best treatment that I can get. Without reading this I probably would have gone with the first doctor that I talked with, who wanted to burn off the Endometriosis. I now know that is the worst thing you can do. I'm so glad I listened to this book. #lifechanging #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

Very informative

I had been told I had endometriosis based on symptoms only so I started researching more about it and came across this book. I learned alot just listening to it. Great read.

Informative, but ultimately sales

Whilst I would recommend this book to others with endometriosis, and those who should learn about it- I can't say I enjoyed it.

There were many desperately affirming parts, and much that I liked. But ultimately, it felt like a sales pitch for Dr Seckin's work. I now feel I know the gold standard, and I know that it's out my reach and the reach of thousands of us across the world, so feel I will never get good treatment.

It's short, so worth listening if you get credits, but I think it's only seen as outstanding because there is such little accessible information available on this topic.

Insightful and Inspiring

This book was amazing. Not only was it very informative, but it helped me reflect and understand I am not alone.
