Endometriosis, a condition affecting women's ovaries, bowel, uterus and pelvis, occurs when endometrial tissue - found within the uterus - begins to grow outside the womb. An especially painful condition, endometriosis has no cure and must be managed through a combination of hormone therapies and surgeries. For most women, the symptoms of endometriosis gradually worsen over time, resulting in the need for multiple surgeries ranging from scar tissue removal to a complete hysterectomy.
Hello there! I'm Jessica Goodyear. I am an unofficial expert on cosmetic procedures--mostly because I've had a lot of them done. Some people judge me or think I'm fake, but I feel more like myself than I ever have before! It all started when I was a teenager. I broke my nose playing softball, and I had to have plastic surgery on my nose so that I could breathe properly. But my nose looked different afterwards, and I liked it better! Now I save up my money to get something done every few years. Whether it's teeth whitening or veneers, a little bit of liposuction, or new cheekbones, there's something so satisfying about letting your inner beauty shine out through your outer body. I started this site to help break the stereotypes about cosmetic surgeries and to talk about some of the health risks related to them. Check it out!
