What is endometriosis?

A condition where endometrial cells (cells that line the womb) grow outside the uterus, typically near the ovaries or fallopian tubes. It is a common cause of pelvic pain, that can worsen with menstruation. The exact cause is unclear but there are several possible explanations, including the backward flow of menstrual blood into the abdominal cavity, immune system disorders, or transformation of normal abdominal cells. It is typically seen in reproductive aged women, and most often diagnosed in their 30's and 40's. It can cause infertility in some patients due to scarring of the fallopian tubes.

Symptoms of endometriosis

  • Lower left abdomen or tummy pain

  • Lower abdomen/tummy pain when passing stool

  • Low back pain

  • Abdominal pain

  • Abdominal pain that worsens after meals

  • Pain in the pelvis- the lowest part of the abdomen, between the belly button and groin

  • Discomfort or unpleasant symptoms occur when the period is about to start

  • Bleeding in between menstrual cycles / periods or after menopause

Questions your doctor may ask to check for endometriosis
