March is National Endometriosis Month. Endometriosis affects approximately 1 in 10 women or about 200 million worldwide.

Endometriosis is an often excruciating condition with no known cure or cause, according to a Miles City Fire Rescue news release. According to EndoMarch. org, it is the third leading cause of hospitalization related to gynecological hospitalizations and is a leading cause of the approximately 600,000 hysterectomies each year in the United States.

In addition, it can take up to 10 years or more to properly diagnosis endometriosis. For more information about endometriosis visit
