Our first mission at Baûbo is to make vulvas happier and hydrated. Behind this light and fun project, we quickly noticed that there was also a fundamental need for some people to soothe stubborn intimate discomfort. Vaginismus, menopause, hormonal treatments, transitions, endometriosis : your testimonies have enlightened us on the benefits of Vulva and Q Balm in the face of recurrent dryness and intimate discomfort.
Endometriosis is between 1.5 to 2.5 million women in France.
Since the launch of the Balm, we have had the honor of being surrounded by women activists, committed to making this disease (re) better known (hello @ superendogirl aka Marie-Rose Galès), also giving their best advice to fight against its most insidious symptoms.
Discover everything (or almost) about endometriosis with this article, published in partnership with LUNA, the 1st FREE application to help diagnose and support people with endometriosis.
Endometriosis: what is this?
Endometriosis is a pathology that today affects between 10% and 15% of women of childbearing age , and has a significant impact on quality of life. Endometriosis is defined as the implantation, outside the uterus, of tissue similar to the uterine lining (endometrium). It is a complex, hormone-dependent, inflammatory, neurological and heterogeneous pathology, which can therefore manifest itself differently in each woman.
There are three clinical forms which may or may not be associated:
1/ Superficial endometriosis , when the implants remain superficial on the surface of the peritoneum (tissue that lines the entire abdomino-pelvic cavity) and/or ovaries
2/ Ovarian endometriosis or endometriotic cysts (endometriomas), when following successive bleeding every month, the lesions create a cyst in the ovary
3/ Deep endometriosis when the lesions penetrate the abdominal and pelvic organs (bladder, ureter, intestine, vagina, etc.).
It is important to note that endometriosis is a multifocal disease: the lesions are rarely isolated. These three types of endometriosis (superficial, ovarian and deep) can therefore be present in the same patient, and the nodules of deep endometriosis are often multiple: for example, you can present simultaneously with vaginal and digestive involvement.
There is also adenomyosis , known as "endometriosis of the uterus" or "internal endometriosis", another particular form of endometriosis: it is an infiltration of cells from the endometrium (uterine mucosa) into the myometrium (uterine muscle).
In summary, every endometriosis is different, just like every woman is!
