What are the Symptoms?
"Pain is the most common sypmtom of endometriosis and the reason most suffers go to their doctors. However, the extent of the pain doesn't seem to be dependent on how much endometriosis you have, but rather on where it is. For instance, a small number of cysts in an area that is disturbed during intercourse may be much more painful than a large number of elsewhere. Most sufferers also report that their pain seems to get worse during their period, although many other sufferers also report constant pain. Generally, however, if the pain comes and goes during your menstrual cycle, it's highly suggestive of endometriosis.
There are five classic symptoms of endometriosis:
Painful Periods (known as dysmenorrhea)
Painful Intercourse (dyspareunia)
Pelvic pain, including painful bowel movements and constipation

  • Definition . Endometriosis is the presence of functioning endometrial tissue outside its normal location, most frequently on the ovaries, uterosacral ligaments, cul-de-sac, and occasionally uterovesical peritoneum. However, it may occur elsewhere including nasal mucosa, lung or even brain. It is estrogen-dependent and generally regresses after menopause or oophorectomy.
  • Pathogenesis . Several factors may play a role including retrograde transport and implantation, metaplastic transformation of "coelomic" peritoneum, lymphatic or hematogenous dissemination, immunological defects, genetic predisposition.
  • Evaluation
  • History
  • The most common symptoms associated with pelvic endometriosis are dysmenorrhea (66%), deep dyspareunia (33%), infertility (60%), and low back pain or chronic pelvic pain that worsens with menses. May have premenstrual spotting and menorrhagia. Dysmenorrhea often precedes menses and lasts throughout the period. Less common symptoms include dyschezia (painful defecation), diarrhea, intermittent constipation, cyclic abdominal pain, dysuria, urinary frequency and hematuria.

At the workshop "Basic Pathophysiology of Endometriosis" held in Washington in September 1991, a research paper was handed around that marked a surprising finding. It described a very high rate of endometriosis in rhesus monkeys that have been studied by the U.S. Air Force and National Aeronautics and Space Administration over many years to learn about the effects of radiation. The endometriosis developed spontaneously in 53 percent of the monkeys in the study group that received no radiation, the incidence of spontaneous endometriosis (endometriosis that developed on its own, not due to endometrium transplanted for research purposes) was 26 percent.

    Endometriosis: Does It Affect You?
    W hen I was first asked to write an article about endometriosis my response was a simple one, "sure, I’ll do it." As I began to gather research I thought to myself how quick and easy this was going to be. I already possessed a great deal of medical literature on the subject and I thought I could easily regurgitate a page full of statistics, case studies, and theories. While I was revising my second draft something occurred to me, I realized that my article had no human perspective at all, it was in fact, just cold recited statistics. This was absurd, I thought to myself. You see, I live with endometriosis everyday. So drafts one and two were quickly thrown into my recycle bin, in hopes that maybe I could help even one person to understand this debilitating condition. What is Endometriosis? Endometriosis is a hormonal and immune condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus (endometrium) is found outside the uterus. It is usually found in the abdomen, fallopian tubes, ovaries, between the vagina and rectum, and the ligaments supporting the uterus. Endometrial growths may also be found in the bladder, bowel, cervix, and less commonly in places like the lungs or arms. Symptoms Diagnosis Diagnosing endometriosis, or "endo" as we refer to it, can be extremely difficult. The symptoms listed above can also be signs of a variety of other conditions from ovarian cysts to a pelvic infection. Endo was once falsely called the "career woman’s disease." We now know that it was titled this because working women generally had more resources to seek continuous medical care.

    Help for Your Endometriosis
    by Peter Eckhart, MD I am a medical doctor, and in my opinion, I have had great luck with helping endometriosis with our natural system. Patients that use our system claim that they have had better outcomes than conventional surgery or prescription medicines. Part one of our system consists of taking Natural Progesterone. John Lee, MD, an American Norwegian who practiced in California, used Natural Progesterone in his clinical practice as a natural remedy to treat endometriosis with great success for several decades. Part two of our system is to avoid chemicals that cause endometriosis. Prior to 1921, there were only twenty reports of endometriosis in the worldwide medical literature. Now, in the USA, 1 out of 20 women have endometriosis. Chemicals that mimic estrogen (xenoestrogens) seem to be the cause of endometriosis. There are 85,000 chemicals in use in the USA, and some of these chemicals have hormonal effects that provoke endometriosis.

    Endometriosis is a common disorder of the female reproductive organs and is the leading cause of chronic pelvic pain in women.
    • Some 5.5 million American women will experience problems with endometriosis. Studies indicate that endometriosis occurs in 10-33% of women aged 25-35 years. Half of young girls with chronic pelvic pain will have endometriosis. The average age at diagnosis is 27 years, but many women have symptoms for years before a certain diagnosis is made.

    African-American Non-sexually active female Endometriosis is commonly diagnosed in at least 15% of all women of reproductive age. Additionally, of women who experience infertility or dysmenorrhea, this disease is a factor in half. Yet, the origin and management of endometriosis remains controversial and frustrating. As a pain syndrome, misconceptions are continually being challenged.
    A number of theories have been proposed to explain the development of endometriosis. Among the most common are: *Retrograde passage of endometrial tissue through the fallopian tubes with implantation on pelvic organs. Regurgitation of menstrual tissue can explain the predominance of endometriotic lesion in the cul-de-sac, the uterosacrals, and ovaries. *Lymphatic or hematological spread of endometrial tissue to parts of the body distant from the uterus.

    The normal tissue lining the uterine cavity is called the endometrium. Endometriosis is a condition in which the presence of this endometrial tissue moves outside the uterus. The most common places for implantation are the ovaries, fallopian tubes, bladder and intestines, uterine wall, and the lining of the pelvis. In very rare cases it may be found in the lungs, surgical wounds (cesarean section scars), brain tissue and the vaginal wall.
    The explanation on how this tissue moves outside the uterine cavity is under debate. It is thought that during menstruation, blood can regurgitate out of the fallopian tubes and into the abdominal cavity. This process is known as retrograde bleeding. How common is it?
    The true incidence of Endometriosis is not really known, but it is thought that 10-15% of all women of reproductive age will develop Endometriosis and 25-35% of all infertile women have Endometriosis. The risk of this disease is seven times greater if a mother or sister have had the disease. back to top

    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.

    Conquering the Silent Invader
    "When we had sex on our wedding night, instead of having an ultimate experience with my husband, sex was so painful I ended up in tears," Marilyn P. wrote to her Witsendo friends. "I thought something was wrong with me . . .that I was frigid or something. "When I went to the doctor, I told him I'd always had some pain with my periods but that my cramps were getting worse. "He did a pelvic exam and I screamed when he touched my left ovary. After doing an ultrasound examination, he told me that my left ovary was swollen to twice its normal size. He also felt small bumps behind my uterus. He recommended doing a laparoscopy to find out what was going on. "That's when I got the news: endometriosis at the ripe old age of twenty-three, and that I had probably had endometriosis as a teenager! What a way to start married life." What is it? Endometriosis is described as the presence of endometrial tissue in locations outside the endometrial (uterine) cavity. Endometriosis is commonly found in the cul-de-sac (behind the uterus), the rectovaginal septum (the tissue between the rectum and vagina), on the surface of the rectum, the fallopian tubes and ovaries, the uterosacral ligaments, the bladder, and the pelvic side wall. Generally endometriosis in the rectovaginal septum is more likely to deeply invade the underlying structures. Is endometriosis a genetic disease?

    Endometriosis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome Q:
    I have endometriosis and now after 5 years, I have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).  The doctor said I have some endometriosis on my bowel. How common is this for women?
    Dr. Donnica:
    Endometriosis is relatively common, but commonly misunderstood.  It affects one in 15 women, or 5 million Americans! Four in 10 of these women will have infertility as a result. While endometriosis is marked by severe cramping before and during menses, some women don’t experience any symptoms. In most cases, women are not affected until they reach their twenties or thirties. What causes endometriosis?  Simply put, some of the lining cells of the womb flow backward into the pelvis and implant on other tissues, such as the ovaries or fallopian tubes.  Being estrogen sensitive, these implants react cyclically. They can grow and cause pain, abnormal bleeding, and tubal blockage.  There are many things we still don’t understand about endometriosis: what causes it, why the symptoms are not necessarily related to the size or location of the implants, or what can be done to prevent it. Endometriosis is also difficult to diagnose conclusively without a surgical procedure called a laparoscopy. A laparoscopy allows your doctor to look into your abdomen and pelvis with a lit tube through a small incision beneath your belly button.

    What is endometriosis?
    The name endometriosis comes from the word “endometrium.” This is the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus. Endometriosis occurs when this tissue grows outside the uterus. These are called implants. The female hormone estrogen causes these implants to grow, bleed and break down, causing pain and swelling. This may or may not happen at the same time as your period. Unlike the tissue shed by the uterus during your period, these implants outside the uterus have no way to leave the body. The implants become inflamed and swollen. The inflammation causes scar tissue around nearby organs that can interfere with their normal functioning and cause pain. Endometriosis is a common health problem in women. It generally appears between the ages of 15 and 50.
