It is human tendency to believe that certain conditions appear only among adults, failing to realise how ignorance leads to greater health issues in the future. Chicken pox for example, once a child gets chicken pox we believe that it is not going to occur again. Nobody takes the effort to know more in detail about an issue, the causes for it and if it has any future implications. Another major health issue that is considered to affect only adult women is Endometriosis. Endometriosis is a health condition that affects almost 100,000 women in the UAE. It is a condition of equal opportunity, differentiates on no grounds. The youngest patient of Endometriosis as literature states was said to have been 101/2 years of age who had only two previous menstrual flows.
