Causes, incidence, and risk factors Return to top The cause of endometriosis is unknown. However, a number of theories have been proposed. The retrograde-menstruation theory proposes that endometrial cells (loosened during menstruation) may "back up" through the fallopian tubes into the pelvis, where they implant and grow in the pelvic and/or abdominal cavities. The immune-system theory suggests that a deficiency in the immune system allows menstrual tissue to implant and grow in areas other than the uterine lining. Another theory suggests that the cells lining the abdominal cavity may spontaneously develop endometriosis. A genetic theory proposes that certain families may exhibit predisposing factors that lead to endometriosis.

The Endometriosis Support Network provides information and support to women living in and around London Ontario, Canada. The organization provides free assistance to women afflicted with endometriosis, and works to increase public awareness of this illness.
Endometriosis is a hormonal and immunological disease where the tissue lining the uterus is found outside of the uterus. Endometriosis can affect women from their early teens through menopause. Many women suffer for years without proper diagnosis. Endometriosis symptoms can vary from mild to completely debilitating. It is frequently the underlying cause of menstrual cramps. Endometriosis is also the leading cause of female infertility. It can lead to severe emotional distress, and may profoundly affect the lives of the sufferer and those close to her. There is no cure for endometriosis, although treatment is available. Endometriosis is a poorly understood disease. Increasing awareness and providing support is the goal of our organization.

What is endometriosis? Endometriosis is a disease that affects more than 500,000 women in Canada. It occurs when the tissue that normally lines the uterus is found in other places where it shouldn't be. This displaced tissue responds to the hormonal cycle the same way as the cells in the uterus by growing and then bleeding. Noone knows what causes "endo" but if someone in your family has it, you are more likely to have it too. What are the symptoms? The symptoms can include:
  • pelvic pain, especially with your period
  • infertility
  • irregular or heavy periods
  • pain with intercourse

Some women experience all these symptoms and more while some women experience none of them. If you have any of these symptoms, you should discuss them with your doctor. How is endometriosis diagnosed and treated? The only way your doctor can confirm you have endo is by surgery. The doctor will check your organs for evidence of endo, usually by laparoscope, and remove some tissue to confirm the diagnosis. At present there is no cure for endo. Surgery, medication, or a combination of both can be used to treat it. The type of treatment you receive will depend on you and your doctor. What support groups are there in British Columbia?

Basic Questions and Answers
by Robert B. Albee, M.D. Although many who visit this site know a great deal about endometriosis, many more do not. In light of this, we present some basic information about endometriosis. We hope you find it helpful.
The medical definition of endometriosis is: Endometrium including both endometrial glands and stroma in an ectopic location. What that means is, tissue similar to the lining of the uterus (the endometrium) that is found living outside the uterus, usually in the female pelvis. Both glands and stroma must be present for a diagnosis of endometriosis.
In the vast majority of cases, endometriosis is found in the female pelvis. Specific locations of endometriosis (also known as lesions or implants) have been found on every pelvic organ, including the uterus, ovaries, tubes, ligaments, ureters, bowel, bladder, and other peritoneal surfaces. The location of the implants, the depth to which they penetrate the tissue they rest upon, and their overall size contribute to the unique nature of this disease. Although there are many differing opinions concerning aspects of endometriosis, one thing everyone agrees on is that every case of endometriosis is different from every other case. We may find similar cases, but none that are exactly alike.
The magnitude of endometriosis pain depends in part on where it is and how much you have. A spot (focus) of endometriosis may stay small and relatively inactive for many years. However, even the tiniest implant can cause incapacitating pain if it irritates a nearby nerve.

The Center for Endometriosis Care was founded to diagnose, treat, and educate women with endometriosis. Free materials are available.
Endometriosis is a troubling disease that affects millions of women worldwide. It is responsible for hundreds of thousands of missed work hours, pain ranging from mild to crippling, and, for some women, infertility. This website and materials offered within are provided free of charge, as a community service to help you learn about endometriosis. CEC-accredited physicians treat endometriosis via laparoscopic excision (LAPEX).
The Center for Endometriosis Care (CEC) is formed around four principles:
  • Recognizing subtle disease in all its manifestations. Removing all endometriosis while preserving a woman's organs. Performing pathological examination on all excised tissue. Treating women with respect as partners in health care.

Historically, medical textbooks teach that endometriosis looks like black powder burns. However, many studies have shown that black implants are not even the most common. Clear, white, red, yellow, blue and gray implants can also occur. A surgeon who looks only for black spots can miss significant disease. The CEC medical staff has many years and thousands of cases of experience in disease recognition. At the Center for Endometriosis Care, we consider any abnormal area of the peritoneum to be endometriosis until proven otherwise by pathology.

The care of endometriosis requires accurate diagnosis and effective treatment. At least 5.5 million women in the United States and millions more around the world are affected with endometriosis. The symptoms, including pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, and low-grade fever, can be severe.
Controversy still exists concerning the optimal treatment of endometriosis and their related pain and infertility. Surgical intervention has been the preferred mode of therapy. Multiple reasons for the surgical approach have been invoqued: a) it is the only way to make a histologic diagnosis b) the diagnosis is made and surgical therapy is easily accomplished simultaneously c) it allows the patient fast control of her symptoms e) it also increases conception rates without resorting to prolonged and expensive medical therapy (usually required for 6 months). Conservative surgical treatment is indicated in women of reproductive age.
Endometriosis is a progressive, often debilitating disease that affects 10-35% of women during their reproductive years. Among gynecologic disorders, endometriosis is second only to leiomyomata in frequency and accounts for 25% of all laparotomies performed by gynecologists. Endometriosis may significantly impair health, quality of life, and fertility.

Why do I need to know about endometriosis?
Endometriosis is a common disease that can affect any menstruating woman from the time of her first period to menopause . Sometimes, the disease can last after menopause. There is no cure for endometriosis and it can be hard for a health care provider to figure out if a woman has it. It can also be hard to figure out the best way to treat it if a woman has the disease. Endometriosis can affect a woman in many ways, such as her ability to work and have children, and her relationships with her partner, children, friends, and co-workers. Researchers are working to find out both causes and ways to manage this disease, so that women who have it can lead full lives.

Endometriosis and sexuality
July 9, 1999 Web posted at: 11:43 AM EDT (1543 GMT) In this story: A mysterious malady How do I know if I have endometriosis? How might endometriosis affect my sex life? What are the treatments and how might they affect my sex life? ... RELATEDS By Sandor Gardos, Ph.D. (WebMD) It is estimated that up to 10 million American women suffer from a chronic, painful condition known as endometriosis. This illness occurs when pieces of the normal lining of the uterus (the endometrium) "migrate" to other areas of the body most commonly, the pelvic region. Because the endometrium normally sheds during a woman's monthly menstrual cycle, internal bleeding, inflammation and pain usually result if this tissue locates itself in a part of the body that has no way of draining it. Although pain during or following intercourse is one of the most common reasons for women with this condition to see a doctor, the issue of how endometriosis affects sexuality is almost never discussed. This is especially troubling since almost all of the available treatments will also affect a woman's sexual functioning in one way or another.

40. Endometriosis Information Page
endometriosis can be found in or on the bowel, in or on the bladder, in operationscars and The only way to diagnose endometriosis is by a laparoscopy.
Endometrium is the tissue that lines the uterus (the womb). During the menstrual cycle the thickness of the endometrium increases in readiness for the fertilised egg. If pregnancy does not occur the lining is shed as a 'period'.
Endometriosis (pronounced end-oh-mee- tree-oh-sis) is a condition where the cells that are normally found lining the uterus are also found in other areas of the body but usually within the pelvis. Each month this tissue outside of the uterus, under normal hormonal control, is built up and then breaks down and bleeds in the same way as the lining of the uterus. This internal bleeding into the pelvis, unlike a period, has no way of leaving the body. This leads to inflammation, pain and the formation of scar tissue. Endometrial tissue can also be found in the ovary where it can form cysts, called 'chocolate' cysts.
You can also have endometrial tissue that grows in the muscle layer of the wall of the uterus. This is called adenomyosis. Each month this tissue within the muscle wall bleeds in the same way as the endometrial tissue in the pelvis bleeds. Adenomyosis can also be found in the muscle layer of the perineum - in the pouch of Douglas or cul de sac.
Endometrial deposits can also be found in more remote sites than the pelvis. Endometriosis can be found in or on the bowel, in or on the bladder, in operation scars and in the lungs. The only site that endometriosis has not been found is the spleen.
