The Endometriosis Answer Book: New Hope, New Help
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, including:
* How to determine if you are at risk and what immediate precautions to take
* How to find an informed and sensitive doctor
* The pros and cons of the available tests and treatments
* The Endometriosis Diet, which may relieve or prevent some of the more disabling symptoms
* How women with endometriosis may still conceive
* And much, much more.
This breakthrough guide 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.
