The patient's family history is significant for a history of secondary infertility in her mother following the birth of this patient. The patient's sister is four years younger than the patient and is herself infertile. Physical examination is unremarkable with the exception of the pelvic and rectal examinations. Bimanual pelvic examination reveals mild tenderness in the left adnexal area with apparent fixation of the left ovary to the uterus. Vaginal ultrasonography revealed a tender 3 cm left ovarian cyst. (Figure 1) Figure 1 Figure 2 There was tenderness in the cul de sac as well as nodularity involving the left uterosacral ligament. Rectal examination was painful with marked induration approximately 3 cms from the anus. A barium enema was obtained and demonstrated a "tethering effect" in the area of the rectosigmoid as well as in the distal ileum (Figure 2).

Teens Sexual Health For Girls
Anne had never had problems with her periods the way some of her friends did. But over time her periods started getting so painful that she dreaded their arrival. Every month for a few days she would curl up on the couch with a heating pad and take a pain reliever. But the cramps eventually became so bad that she was missing school a couple of days a month, and the pain even started happening between periods. Anne's doctor thought Anne might have endometriosis. So she referred her to a specialist in treating this condition. It turned out Anne's doctor was right. What Is Endometriosis?
Endometriosis (pronounced: en-doe-mee-tree- o -sus) takes its name from the endometrium , the tissue that lines the uterus. When a woman has endometriosis, tissue that looks and acts like the endometrium starts growing outside the uterus. The most common locations for these growths - called endometrial implants - are the outside surface of the uterus , the ovaries, the fallopian tubes, the ligaments that support the uterus, the internal area between the vagina and rectum, and the lining of the pelvic cavity. Endometriosis affects more than 5 million American women, including teen girls. It's not always diagnosed right away in teens because at first they or their doctors assume that their painful periods are a normal part of menstruating. But continuing, excessive pain that limits activity isn't normal and should always be taken seriously. Because severe endometriosis can make it complicated for a girl to have children in the future, it's a good idea to get medical help for endometriosis and not wait too long.

The Female Reproductive System
Endometrial tissue, whether it is inside or outside the uterus, responds to the rise and fall of estrogen and progesterone produced by the ovaries during the reproductive cycle. The roles hormones play in the function of the reproductive organs will help you understand endometriosis, its diagnosis, and treatment.
The Reproductive Organs
The uterus is a hollow organ in the center of the pelvis similar in size and shape to a pear, but usually smaller. The cervix, or lower part of the uterus, protrudes into the upper vagina. The two fallopian tubes are attached to the upper part of the uterus, one on each side. Each tube forms a narrow passageway that opens into the pelvic portion of the abdominal cavity, near the ovaries. The ovaries are the two small glands which are similar in size to a prune and attached on each side of the uterus, beneath the fimbriated or fringed opening of the fallopian tubes. The ovary serves two functions: it produces oocytes (eggs) and secretes hormones. Each month at the time of ovulation, a mature egg is released by an ovary. Tiny, hair-like cilia on the inner lining of the fallopian tubes catch the egg and draw it inside. The egg may be fertilized during the journey through the tube toward the uterus, known as the endometrium.

This is a section through an enlarnged 12 cm ovary to demonstrate a cystic cavity filled with old blood typical for endometriosis with formation of an endometriotic, or "chocolate", cyst. The hemorrhage from endometriosis into the ovary may give rise to a large "chocolate cyst" so named because the old blood in the cystic space formed by the hemorrhage is broken down to produce much hemosiderin and a brown to black color.

What is endometriosis?
Endometriosis is a growth of cells similar to those that form the inside of the uterus (endometrial cells) outside of the uterus. Endometrial cells are the same cells that are shed each month during menstruation . When endometrial cells grow outside the uterus, endometriosis results. These cells attach themselves to tissue outside the uterus and are called endometriosis implants. The implants are most commonly found on the ovaries, the fallopian tubes, outer surfaces of the uterus or intestines, and on the surface lining of the pelvic cavity. They can also be found on the liver, vagina, old surgery scars, and even in the lung or brain. Endometrial implants are generally benign (not cancerous). Endometriosis affects women in their reproductive years. Endometriosis is estimated to affect over 1 million women (estimates range from 3% to 18% of women) in the United States. It is one of the leading causes of pelvic pain and reasons for laparoscopic surgery and

How and why the tissue appears in other locations is unclear. The misplaced endometrial tissue may adhere to the ovaries, the ligaments supporting the uterus, the small and large intestines, the ureters, the bladder, the vagina, surgical scars, or the lining of the chest cavity. The misplaced endometrial tissue can irritate nearby tissues, causing large bands of scar tissue (adhesions) to form between structures in the abdomen. Endometriosis is a chronic disorder that may be painful. Exactly how many women have endometriosis is unknown because it can usually be diagnosed only by directly viewing the endometrial tissue (which requires a surgical procedure). Endometriosis probably affects about 10 to 15% of menstruating women aged 25 to 44. It can also affect teenagers.

Many women experience painful periods. In a minority of cases, this can be caused by endometriosis, a condition in which small pieces of the endometrium (womb lining) grow outside the womb. Endometriosis occurs in 1-15% of women of childbearing age. In many women it causes no symptoms, but in others it can cause severe pain and may reduce the chances of becoming pregnant.
What is endometriosis?
During the menstrual cycle the lining of the uterus (womb), known as the endometrium, gradually thickens and fills with blood as it prepares for the arrival of a fertilised egg. If the egg is not fertilised, the uterus lining breaks down and is lost as the monthly period. Sometimes small pieces of endometrium grow on organs outside the uterus. This is called endometriosis. The endometriosis goes through the same monthly changes as the uterus lining; sometimes swelling and bleeding into the body cavity, which can cause inflammation and pain. Rubbery bands of scar tissue, called adhesions, may form. These can attach organs and tissues together and affect surrounding organs.
