Overview

Endometriosis is one of the most insidious diseases of our time -- and the leading cause of infertility in America today. Often misdiagnosed and undetected in its early stages, it is painful and debilitating and dramatically disrupts a woman's career and family life. The Endometriosis Answer Book is the first authoritative handbook to explore this disease and provide the most up-to-the-minute facts on its causes, prevention, and treatment.

In his twenty years of practice, Dr. Niels Lauersen has had daily experience with patients who suffer from this misunderstood -- and sometimes mistreated -- disease. He has heard the fears and myths that patients bring into his office along with their symptoms and, with compassion and reassurance, has given them the benefit of his expertise. In The Endometriosis Answer Book he examines how endometriosis is diagnosed and treated, and presents a wealth of information and advice to answer your most pressing concerns

The Endometriosis Answer Book not only provides vital medical help, but hands women the power to make informed decisions about their own health care as they pursue their right to optimal well-being.

A true breakthrough guide, The Endometriosis Answer Book not only offers vital medical help, but also gives women the chance to make informed decisions about their well-being.

    I'm not alone!

    This book helped me to see that what was happening to me was real and it really did exist. I am not alone and there is something that can be done about it.
