FAQ about endometriosis

Does diet affect endometriosis?

Making changes to your diet has not been proven to aid in reducing the symptoms of endometrioses. However, sticking to a healthy and balanced diet consisting of green vegetables, fruit, fibre, protein and whole grains can help in improving your ability to combat pain or deal with it and may improve your daily life in being able to function with more energy. 


What kind of doctor will treat endometriosis?

An obstetrician-gynaecologist (OB-GYN) will treat endometriosis.


What is endometriosis cyst?

One of the complications associated with endometriosis is the development of endometriosis cysts.  These are fluid-filled sacs or growths that are known as endometrial cysts or ovarian endometriomas (when these form on an ovary). The symptoms of these cysts can often be the same as those of endometriosis.


Can endometriosis make you gain weight?

Gaining weight is not considered to be a symptom of endometriosis. Bloating is a symptom of the disease and this can often make your clothes fit tighter, which can make you feel as though you have gained weight.
