Endometriosis: What is it?
Endometriosis is an oft-misunderstood condition that affects millions of women every year. It’s when the tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside of the uterus. Symptoms vary person to person, and can range from mild to severe. The only way to properly diagnose endometriosis is with a laparoscopy, which is a minor surgery that allows the doctor to see the uterine lining for evidence of the disease.
Endometriosis is a type of gynecological disorder where the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside the uterus. This is usually in the pelvis, but it can be found in the abdomen, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and other places. It is estimated that over 5 million women in the United States have endometriosis, and about 10% of women may have this disease but are unaware of it.
How serious is endometriosis?
Endometriosis is an often painful and chronic disorder in which tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus (endometrium) grows outside of it. The misplaced tissue can form cysts, which cause scar tissue, and it can also cause adhesions that bind organs together, making it difficult to pass urine or have a bowel movement. Some women with endometriosis have no symptoms, but others have severe pain throughout their menstrual cycle and pain during sex. There’s no cure for endometriosis, though treatments can ease symptoms and help you manage your condition.
The first sign that you could have endometriosis is period pain. This is a symptom of many other diseases, so endometriosis is ruled out by pairing the pain with another symptom, like unusual bleeding, very little bleeding, or unusual amounts of bleeding. Unfortunately, there is no one test to diagnose endometriosis. Your doctor will start by asking about your menstrual cycle. To help diagnose endometriosis, you and your doctor will want to know:
- – How old you were when your periods started;
- – The length of time between your periods;
- – How long your periods usually last;
- – How regular your periods are;
- – What your flow is usually like;
Endometriosis is a disorder in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus (the endometrium) is found outside of the uterus. In most cases, it occurs in the pelvis, but it may also affect areas outside of the reproductive tract. This misplaced tissue responds to the menstrual cycle in the same way that the endometrium does, with growing and shedding each month. However, this extra tissue has no way to exit the body, so it becomes trapped in the body, where it continues to grow and shed. This can cause severe pain and other symptoms each month.
