What is Endometriosis and how do you know if you have it?

It’s Endometriosis Month and we should all be aware that Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue similar to the lining inside the uterus, called the endometrium, migrates and grows outside of the uterus.

Cause

There is no known cause of Endometriosis, but it is highly likely that certain genes predispose women to develop the disease.

Symptoms of Endometriosis

Women may experience various pains, especially during menstruation, where it may be severe, but there are a variety of methods and treatments that can help to reduce the pain.

Excessive bleeding and infertility are other known symptoms.

How is Endometriosis Diagnosed?

The test to definitively diagnose Endometriosis is Laparoscopy. Laparoscopy is an operation performed in the abdomen or pelvis through small incisions with the aid of a camera. The laparoscope aids diagnosis or therapeutic interventions.

Diagnosis can also be made based on one’s clinical history.

Consult your Gynaecologist if you think you may have Endometriosis.
