There is a painful disease that takes place amongst many women. Endometriosis is a common and sometimes debilitating condition experienced by women of reproductive age, it is estimated to affect 10% of women


This disease can cause chronic pelvic pain and is sometimes associated with infertility. Misplaced endometrial tissue is what defines endometriosis. Normally endometrial tissue occurs only in the lining of the uterus – however, in many cases of endometriosis this tissue can be found abnormally in the ovaries, fallopian tubes, bladder, ligaments that support the uterus, and the spaces between the rectum and vagina or cervix. 

Since endometrial tissue responds to hormones, it can also bleed and cause pain, especially before and during menstrual periods. The severity of symptoms and the disorder’s effects on fertility and on organ function vary greatly from woman to woman.


For many women, this disease is debilitating, and many experience physical and emotional pain daily. 

Ashleigh Beaver is a blogger from North Carolina, and after losing two pregnancies due to miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy, caused by her endometriosis, she began to write about her experience and relate to other women. On her blog Matriarchs and Maids | Identifying as Both she shares her struggles and joys as a mother and wife.


From a young age, Ashleigh was told that she would not be able to have children. While she was blessed with two miracle babies, she also encountered much heart-ache with secondary infertility. She underwent laparoscopic surgery to remove her endometriosis, in hopes to live a healthy pain-free life. While many battles have been won, endometriosis is still Ashleigh’s battle. She is one of many faces of endometriosis.

Ashleigh shares her heart-wrenching blog post on how this disease robbed her womb of a child and left marks and reminders that will be forever visible on her body.
