dc.description.abstractIn “The Social and Psychological Impact of Endometriosis on Women’s Lives: A Critical Narrative Review,” hereafter “Social and Psychological Impact of Endometriosis,” authors Lorraine Culley, Caroline Law, Nicky Hudson, Elaine Denny, Helene Mitchell, Miriam Baumgarten, and Nicholas Raine-Fenning review the extent at which endometriosis results in a negative quality of life for affected women. Endometriosis is a condition characterized by the growth of cells similar to that of the endometrium, or the tissue that lines the uterus, outside of the uterus, and can cause heavy menstrual periods, pain, and infertility. Such symptoms can impact how women balance romantic or sexual relationships, due to the fact that endometriosis can cause chronic pelvic pain and pain during sexual intercourse. The authors found that women living with endometriosis are more likely to experience depression or anxiety, and conclude that the lack of both overall academic research and factual information given to women at diagnosis results in negative effects on their psychological wellbeing.en_US
