Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a complex and often debilitating condition that affects millions of individuals worldwide. It is a chronic condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus, known as the endometrium, grows outside the uterus. This tissue can implant on various pelvic organs, leading to inflammation, scarring, and the formation of adhesions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Common symptoms of Endometriosis:

  1. Pelvic Pain: The main symptom is pelvic pain, which is often linked to menstrual periods. Unlike typical cramping, those with endometriosis describe menstrual pain that’s far worse than usual. The pain can also worsen over time.

  2. Pain with Sex: Pain during or after sex is common for individuals with endometriosis.

  3. Pain with Bowel Movements or Urination: These symptoms typically occur before or during a menstrual period.

  4. Excessive Bleeding: Some people experience heavy menstrual periods or bleeding between periods.

  5. Infertility: Endometriosis may be discovered during infertility tests.

  6. Other Symptoms: Fatigue, diarrhea, constipation, bloating, or nausea may also occur, especially before or during menstrual periods.
