Watch on Demand: Living With Endometriosis — Facts on Fertility, Pain, and Treatment

Written by Torrey Kim
Posted on July 26, 2021

“We don’t want to normalize the pain of endometriosis — not only does that decrease the chance that someone is going to get appropriately treated, but it also tells them that they don't have anything wrong with them, and that's the wrong message to give someone.”

Dr. Dan Martin shared this important insight during MyEndometriosisTeam’s live Q&A on July 20, when members of the endometriosis community had a chance to learn more about managing and treating the condition.

Dr. Martin joined MyEndometriosisTeam Senior Editor Kelly Crumrin to answer questions on how to manage irregular periods, whether endometriosis is related to any autoimmune conditions, and what new treatments might be on the horizon for the condition.

Check out a few more key insights that Dr. Martin discussed during the live Q&A, including:

  • The possible causes of endometriosis
  • Whether any dietary or lifestyle changes can help ease endometriosis symptoms
  • What people with endometriosis can do to boost their chances of getting pregnant
  • The pros and cons of laparoscopic surgery
  • Whether mental health conditions are ever associated with endometriosis
