The Struggle Against Endometriosis

March 22, 2018
Katie Visco

Endometriosis is a very painful disease. It is a chronic pain condition that affects your fertility, along with symptoms that disrupt moments in your day-to-day life. Endometriosis is caused by uterine tissue growing outside of the uterus and onto other internal organs such as the fallopian tubes. The cause of this is still unknown. Endometriosis affects one out of every ten women. This story of Sabrena Cunningham will give those suffering women hope that life could get better.  

Symptoms

Symptoms can include extremely long and painful cramping, long menstrual cycles, and infertility. The earlier the diagnosis the better. That way, if you do want to have children, you can take the measures necessary. It is very difficult to have children if you have this condition so be sure to take measures under a physician's care.

Normally the treatment for endometriosis is a hysterectomy, which would mean removing all reproductive organs. For Sabrena Cunningham, a hysterectomy wasn't an option. She was determined to have children and wasn't going to let endometriosis stop her from achieving that.  

Success is possible!

Cunningham and her husband consulted fertility specialists, and she had a procedure to clear out her reproductive organs. She had an endometrial ablation, a procedure that removes some excess lining of the uterus. As the struggle continued with no luck, the couple was in the last phase before in vitro fertilization when Sabrena got pregnant. Their fertility specialist informed them that the method they were using only had a 18% success rate. In the end, the Cunninghams added two beautiful boys to their family. 

Sabrena urges young women to get diagnosed as early as possible. If you want to be a mom, you should be informed about your body. It is recommended to be informed before you take action to bring another human into the world.
