An intense pain that makes it impossible to maintain daily activities and intense bleeding during the menstrual period indicates that something is not right. They call it a "calm illness" and is one of the most common gynecological pathologies among women in their fertile age, although not known.
It is called Endometriosis and it is noted that it affects 15% of the population of women in the world, but the lack of official statistics prevents a clear picture of this disease.
Due to the nature of pain during menstruation, the diagnosis can take several years that cause the disease to continue on its way and cause other complications in the body that affect the bladder, bowel or & Other organs.
In most cases, only when the woman tries to get pregnant and can not be pregnant as it directly affects fertility.
Available projects and a new opportunity
The bills presented in both Mendoza and Nation levels are rare to ask for this disease to be considered chronic pathology.
This qualification would be very beneficial for people who suffer from it, such as more attention in medicines, medical licenses and a comprehensive medical approach.
The national senator for San Luis María Eugenia Catalfamo recently presented a project in the Congress so that the Compulsory Medical Scheme considers the diagnosis, diagnosis, control, treatment, drugs and support therapies.
Without seeking support for this initiative, the common women "Endometriosis Mendoza" will meet on Saturday of 17 in Garibaldi and San Martin.

Living with Endometriosis
"The pain is so intense every month that I missed a week at work and I'll take Tramadol," said Eliana, a meeting organizer on Saturday.
"They always tell us that pain is normal when you are menstruating but not like that, you have to finish it and you have to spread it so that all the women and women are in it know, so you can go to a doctor and they quickly diagnose you as this is the first thing they do is give you painkillers, "he said. A 47-year-old woman whose illness has been led to take this case as a banner.
Through laparoscopic surgery, Elina discovered that she was in step 4, the most serious, and repeated the slogan over: "It's not normal for him to damage so much, you do not usually throw yourself into the bed, so you can have so many days of hemorrhage. "
