Invisible gynecological diseases: what they are and why it is time for their status to be changed

Have you ever heard of invisible female diseases? They are not invisible Because they do not feel, or are imperceptible, but because despite their diffusion - which gradually discovered more and more rooted - there are few specialized centers for the research and development of care.

This makes diagnosis difficult, but let's go in order.

  • Because often invisible diseases is accompanied by the adjective feminine?
This question has an important medical-cultural gap. The fact is that, over the years, within the medical experimentation, the female gender has been sub -representative: most of the medical school programs still convey the assumption that the only difference existing in biologically male and female bodies are only the organs sexual.
It is no coincidence, therefore, that specifically feminine diseases - such as invisible, endometriosis, vulvodyna and neuropathy of the pudding - are little studied. And here we come up with the second great theme that characterizes this story: the culture of pain.


  • What is the culture of pain?

The idea that the body of women is naturally brought to pain has no age, is an evergreen that unites different cultures and different century. Not only would women bring to pain, but they should also endure it without having to complain about it. The fact is that, for example, menstrual pains must still be hidden or endured: taking a day of illness for this reason is often considered a whim from women or an act of laziness.

A similar fate is shared by what are the invisible female diseases: the best known are endometriosis, vulvodynia and neuropathy of the pudding.

There are several testimonies of women who come to a diagnosis after long years of visits and suffering; According to some studies, to have a diagnosis of endometriosis, on average 7.4 years are used where, in addition to physical pain, people suffering from this kind of disorders are also subjected to different types of psychological pressures: renunciation of different aspects of the Own personal sphere such as sex, opportunities for sociality and even work is on the agenda, because of pain.
In the diagnostic path, there are many testimonies of those who do not affirm that they are not believed about the pain they feel, seeing minimize chronic disorders that prevent the natural development of their lives.
Now that of these diseases it has started to speak, the struggle will be to increase the resources of research and to request that they are introduced, due to the invalidity they involve, and recognized by the national health system.
If you experience pain and annoyance at the uoginecological system:
  • He promptly consult an* expert* to whom to tell all your pains without shame, so that it can direct you towards more in -depth studies and analyzes;
  • Subject to specialist tests;
  • If you do not feel capit*, change the center: unfortunately to date the diagnosis includes a long path of investigations. By contacting specialized or experienced centers in this field, you could facilitate the process.
