Endometriosis is a condition resulting from the appearance of endometrial tissues (tissues that line the inside of the uterus) outside the uterus. Thereby causing pelvic pains.
These displaced tissues continually thicken, break down, and bleed after a complete menstrual circle (as it normally would inside the uterus). As there is no passage for the blood, it becomes trapped, causing excruciating pain to its victims.
Symptoms of the ailment include: painful periods, pain with intercourse, pain with bowel movement or urination, massive bleeding, infertility. And on a minor note: fatigue, diarrhoea, bloating or nausea.
In a bid to sensitise the masses of this ailment, an endurance match tagged “EndoMarch” has been initiated.The “EndoMarch” is a campaign that is sponsored by the MaitaGuinnessNG, DiamondBankNG, and NordicaLagos.
It is aimed at wedging a war against the disease, Endometriosis, via bringing it to the minds of the masses and showing supports to women all over the world suffering from its hands. The march will hold on the 11th of March, 2017., by 8:00 am prompt. The “EndoMarch” will start from City Mall Onikan, through Awolowo Road, to Muri Okunola Park in VI Lagos, Nigeria.
