Endometriosis explained

Endometriosis is a common condition that affects women. Almost 1 in 10 women are diagnosed with this condition. It is a frequently painful medical condition where tissue similar to the ones found in a woman’s uterus grows outside the uterus. The growth usually happens in the ovaries, fallopian tubes or the connective tissue that lines pelvis.

Common symptoms of Endometriosis include:

  • Painful periods
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Infertility
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Pain during bowel movement or urination

Getting life insurance is not difficult

However, the good thing is that this condition is not life-threatening and therefore, people with pre-existing Endometriosis can find life insurance on normal terms also. This means that the life insurance premium will be similar to the one offered to someone who does not suffer from Endometriosis. However, given that the severity of the condition varies between individuals, insurance companies may want to know more about your condition specifically before deciding on your application.

Details sought by insurance companies

A life insurance company will want to know certain details about how you are managing your Endometriosis. The questions could be the following:

  • When were you diagnosed with Endometriosis?
  • How severe is your condition?
  • Are you on medication for your Endometriosis?
  • Have you had surgery in the recent past?
  • Has anyone in your family developer cancer of the uterus or ovaries?
  • Do you go for regular check-ups with your gynaecologist?

Besides, the life insurance company will also like to understand how has Endometriosis affected your lifestyle. Though most people can lead a normal life with Endometriosis, however, situations may vary. The insurance company may want to know:

  • Are you working full-time or has the Endometriosis had an impact on your normal work life?
  • Is your Endometriosis preventing you from living your regular lifestyle?
