5 Signs you may have Endometriosis

Hello again,

Endometriosis has a wide and varied symptom list however the following signs could mean that you are a sufferer from the condition.  If symptoms begin to affect your daily life, seek advice from your GP, you can download our GP information pack here.

Possible Symptoms

Pain during intercourse

Pain during or after sex is a common symptom of endometriosis regardless of the stage of the endometriosis that is being suffered.

Painful Periods

Debilitating period pains that make you stop what you are doing or make your cancel plans are a hugely common symptom of endometriosis.

Diarrhoea, Constipation or Nausea.

Unexplained feelings of nausea or the suffering of diarrhoea or constipation without any explanation could hint towards endometriosis.

Pain when peeing and pooing during your period.

Endometriosis can cause pain when you poo or wee during your period.

We recommend going to your GP if you suffer from these symptoms. For more information on endometriosis please see our information pack.

We’re Back

Good afternoon everyone,

We have finally followed up on our first blog post! We have started this blog to help as many sufferers of endometriosis in our community (near and far) as possible. If you don’t already know, we are a medical device company based in Edinburgh, Scotland and specialize in the treatment of endometriosis with our device, The Helica TC. 

We want to help sufferers of endometriosis, provide information and try to clear up some of the myths surrounding the condition.  We deeply empathise with sufferers as we have seen the damage endometriosis can do to a person and their family. Therefore, we have decided to make a stand against this condition and hopefully with the community’s help we can raise awareness and make a difference to those affected both directly and indirectly.

We have lots more content to follow, but in the meantime why don’t you check out our twitter feed, Helica Support, let us know what your experience with endometriosis is, or even just say hi.

Have a great day and stay strong,

The Helica Team.
