MARCH IS ENDOMETRIOSIS AWARENESS MONTH
Did you know 1 in 10 women suffer from Endometriosis? Did you know it is the number-one cause of infertility in women?
What is Endometriosis? A painful, chronic disease that occurs when tissue like that which lines the uterus is found outside the uterus. Each month the tissue builds up, breaks down, and sheds but has no way of leaving the body. This results in internal bleeding, breakdown of the blood and tissue from the lesions, and inflammation -- and can cause pain, infertility, scar tissue formation, adhesions, and bowel problems.
What are the signs of Endometriosis? Pain before and during periods, Pain with sex, Infertility, Fatigue Painful urination during periods, Painful bowel movements during periods, Other Gastrointestinal upsets such as diarrhea, constipation, nausea.
How it is diagnosed? The average diagnosis for endometriosis takes roughly 10 years, during which time many women are wrongly diagnosed. Tests to check for physical clues of endometriosis include: Pelvic exam, Ultrasound, or Laparoscopy. What is Laparoscopy? While you're under general anesthesia, your surgeon makes a tiny incision near your navel and inserts a slender viewing instrument looking for endometrial tissue outside the uterus. He or she may take samples of tissue (biopsy).
How it is treated? Treatment for endometriosis is usually with medications or surgery. The approach you and your doctor choose will depend on the severity of your signs and symptoms and whether you hope to become pregnant.
