This book is a great resource for anyone suffering with endometriosis. I found it to be easy to read and understand. I like the fact that the book not only contains the medical facts but also contains real life stories from women who have the disease. These real life stories really helped put my own situation into perspective and provided me much comfort-it really helps to know I am not alone.

I recommend this to both women who have been recently diagnosed or long time sufferers of the disease like myself. I so wish this book had been around 12 years ago when I was diagnosed. This book alone has given me more information about the disease than some of the medical professionals I have talked about. Kerry Ann really did her research and the result is wonderful!

While there are many books about Endometriosis available on the market, none have lent such a voice to the global Endo community. This is truly a collaborative effort, featuring the best from both the professional and lay communities within its pages. Author Kerry-Ann Morris is to be commended on her work. This book will benefit every woman or girl with the disease - as well as their loved ones and doctors alike. *Everyone* concerned with Endometriosis must add this book to their library.

Recently diagnosed with endometriosis, I went searching for a book that would help me get a handle on the disease. This is a good reference guide, giving clear, concise and up-to-date information. It's well-balanced, providing information about medical and alternative options; it does not advocate one particular course of action but aims to educate the reader about the options that are out there. I am very pleased with my purchase and recommend the book highly.

Kerry-Ann is able to take a lot of the mystery out of this disease. She breaks the informaion down into bite size pieces that are easy to understand. Her book is full of "lightbulb moments." Things began to make sense and the "light came on" a number of times as I read the book.

I suggest this book to any person dealing with this horrid disease.

Format: Paperback
Having just been diagnosed with Endometriosis, I can say firsthand that this book is both hopeful and informative. Including information about treatment options, how to talk to your male partner and family members about living with endometriosis, facts/statistics, and much more; this book is extremely helpful if you are new to living with endo or have a bit of experience with it. Many of the pages include real personal stories about other women with endo and they provide hope for those of us just diagnosed.
I have just finished skimming through the book for the information I was looking for and I am planning to go back to the "dog-eared" pages to reread for more info.
I don't think I could have found a more consise and helpful book that covers such an array of topics related to endo.
I highly reccommend this book to family members and those diagnosed with endo as well as professionals who might seek to become empathetic with those of us who have endo.

Having been diagnosed with Endo in 2008 (but having symptoms for the majority of my life), I was shocked to realize how much of the other issues I've been experiencing are closely linked to endo: not sleeping, chronic fatigue, etc. I had no idea the impact of this disease on every part of my body until reading this book. I know longer feel crazy for being so sick. Endo is a very serious disease. Also, I found it amazing how much information was packed inside. The author covered all types of treatments from surgery, drugs, vitamins, minerals. She really simplified it by putting together one amazing resource. To top it all off, intertwined throughout are amazing blurbs from actual women dealing with endo. I feel empowered now to stop being controled by this disease and reach out to continue learning and be informed and involved with my treatment. This is a must have and long overdue resource for anyone suffering from this horrible disease.

I have not been diagnosed with anything as of yet.
However, I've been suffering pelvic pain since 2007. The doctors at the emergency room have repeatedly told me it's probably endo related.
I checked this book out at the library, and liked it so much I bought it.
It's very informative and comforting.

It's helped me learn more about what may potentially be wrong with me.
It's helped me prepare myself for treatments and surgery that may be in the future for me.

If you or someone you love is affected by endometriosis...BUY THIS BOOK.

You won't regret it.
It's written in a way that is easy to understand. It includes many stories from women who are diagnosed with endometriosis, which helps you realize you are most certainly not alone. It has a wonderful section about symptoms and a symptom chart that you can copy, fill out and bring to your doctor. It's a wonderful book and I'm very glad i own it as I am on the road to an official diagnosis, and healing.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Lauren a Grobie on August 3, 2011
Format: Paperback
Like many others who have read the book, I only wish it was written sooner and that I had discovered the book sooner. There's a certain feeling of helplessness, a feeling of being lost and alone and an incredible depression that comes with the diagnosis and the battle before even being diagnosed. This book gives hope to those of us who have been diagnosed....a feeling of I'm not the only one here...others have it too. I also wish it was required for all gynecologists and their patients with Endo to read it. Patients should be required to read it as part of their recovery from surgery.
