As we mentioned in previous articles, during the last stage of the menstrual cycle, normally a layer of endometriosis lining in the inside of uterus is expelled, known as menstruation blood. Instead some of the endometriosis tissues grow somewhere in the body causing endometriosis. They also react to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle, building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through menstrual period. In this article, we will discuss how endometrosis affects a woman's emotional state.

1. Depression
Depression is a illness that not only affects woman with endometriosis but also their family, work or school life, sleeping and eating habits, and general health. It is caused by lower levels of good estrogen and high levels of progesterone, and the symptom get worse before and during menstruation. Being misunderstood by co-workers, family, and friends may trigger the feeling of worthlessness and loss of interest in daily activity such as hobbies and sex.

Many women with endometrosis also suffer from anemia caused by heavy blood flow leading to deficiency of iron, folate aid, and vitamin B12 which are necessary for reproduction of red blood cells and to increase transportation of oxygen to brain cells, causing loss of concentration and memory.

4. Irritability

It is best to cope with the stress and try understand the disease and how to treat it. Denial of any of this not only causes more emotional pressure but also irritates any suggestion and help.

5. Loss of self confidence

Without understanding by her boss and family, women with endometriosis may lose self confidence in her job as well as at home.
