162. - Female Reproductive Endocrinology - Endometriosis
endometriosis occurs early in reproductive aged women, and its incidence The prevalence of endometriosis ranges from 250% of reproductive aged women.
Chapter 9 - Elizabeth A. Pritts, MD, and Robert N Taylor, MD, PhD
March 1, 2002 Index


Endometriosis is a disease in which endometrial glands and stroma implant and grow in areas outside the uterus (See Fig.1). The most common place to find implants is in the peritoneal cavity, but endometriotic lesions occasionally have been found in the pleural cavity, liver, kidney, gluteal muscles, bladder, and even in men. The anatomical location and inflammatory response to these lesions are believed to account for the symptoms and signs associated with endometriosis. Figure 1. Common locations of endometriosis within the pelvis and abdomen. (Reprinted by permission from the New England Journal of Medicine 2001. Olive DL, Pritts EA. Treatment of Endometriosis. Vol. 345:267) SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS The most common symptom for women who have endometriosis is that of cyclic pelvic pain, although many women with endometriosis may not have this complaint. The pain usually begins just before menses and continues throughout the duration of menstrual flow and typically includes dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, dysuria, or dyschezia. The pain also may be perceived in musculoskeletal regions, such as the flank, low back, or thighs. The next most common symptom is that of infertility. It is apparent that women with moderate and severe disease can have fertility problems due to the mechanical blockage of sperm-egg union, either from adhesions or disruption of normal pelvic anatomy. Interestingly, women with minimal or mild disease also have decreased fertility outcomes when compared with those without clinical evidence of endometriosis. The exact causes remain elusive to date, but several postulated mechanisms will be addressed below.

Cause, description, and treatment of adenomyosis (endometriosis interna), from Woman's Diagnostic Cyber.

About us Articles Books ... Quizzes Woman's Diagnostic Cyber Disease Profile Name adenomyosis Synonyms endometriosis interna, uterine endometriosis, internal endometriosis
description Adenomyosis is the presence of endometrial glands and supporting tissues in the muscle of the uterus where it would not occur normally. When the gland tissue grows during the menstrual cycle and then at menses tries to slough, the old tissue and blood cannot escape the uterine muscle and flow out of the cervix as part of normal menses. This trapping of the blood and tissue causes uterine pain in the form of monthly menstrual cramps. It also produces abnormal uterine bleeding when some of the blood finally escapes the muscle resulting in prolonged spotting. It more often occurs in the posterior wall of the uterus.
Is it common? The background incidence of adenomyosis in all women either with or without symptoms is not known precisely because only in recent years has MRI imaging been able to diagnose adenomyosis without doing a hysterectomy. In studies of chronic pelvic pain in which women had hysterectomies, the incidence of adenomyosis is about 15% to 25% ( ). It seems to be about the same incidence in hysterectomy specimens from women without pain as from women with pain so it is possible that this represents the background incidence.

  • Back to Women's Health Center The Basics of Endometriosis Endometriosis is a condition in which cells from the endometrium - or uterine lining - grow outside the uterus and adhere to other structures in the pelvis, most commonly the ovaries, bowel, fallopian tubes or bladder. It is a benign (noncancerous) condition. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), endometriosis is a common condition affecting 10 to 15 percent of reproductive-age women. It rarely causes symptoms following natural or surgical menopause. The most common symptoms of endometriosis are painful menstrual periods or non-cyclic pelvic pain. However, the type and intensity of symptoms vary greatly among women with endometriosis. Symptoms may be completely disabling or mild. Sometimes the condition is present and causes few to no symptoms. Chronic pelvic pain is common in women with endometriosis. Other symptoms may include:
    • diarrhea and painful bowel movements especially during menstruation painful intercourse abdominal tenderness severe cramping
    Endometriosis with scarring that distorts the anatomy of the pelvic organs may impair fertility. When there is no distortion of the pelvic organs or blockage of the fallopian tubes, endometriosis is less likely to impair fertility.

    Endometriosis is a very common gynaecological condition which can affect up to 15 percent of all women. Half of all women with endometriosis will be infertile. After fibroids, endometriosis is the most common gynaecological problem. The National Endometriosis Society estimates that between 1.5 and 2 million women in Britain have endometriosis. In the US that number is closer to 5 million. Endometriosis is more common in childless women over the age of 30. It is now believed that endometriosis is sensitive to oestrogen; therefore, women who have had more cycles, without a break for pregnancy, will have had more exposure to the female hormones. Today, with more and more women putting off having children until their later years, the incidence of endometriosis-linked infertility is increasing. What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis affects 10% to 15% of women and is a chronic, sometimes painful condition that can lead to infertility. Causes of endometriosis are unknown. Diagnosis of endometriosis usually involves a laparoscopy , a complete medical history, a physical examination, and other tests. Treatment typically involves medication and/or surgery. Endometrial implants typically inset in other parts of the reproductive tract, including the ovaries, fallopian tubes, the inside lining of the abdominal cavity, and the outside surfaces of the uterus or intestines. They can also occur in other parts of the body, including the liver, legs, lungs, and rarely, the brain. The implants are not malignant (cancerous), but the disease may be progressive and

    Symptoms, Holistic Options for Treatment
    This information courtesy of Herbal Remedies Endometriosis is a disease affecting women in their reproductive years. The tissue that lines the inside of the uterus and builds up and sheds each month in the menstrual cycle is called Endometrium tissue. In endometriosis, the endometrium tissue is found growing and sheding blood outside the uterus, in other areas of the body. This misplaced tissue develops into growths or lesions which respond to the menstrual cycle in the same way that the tissue of the uterine lining does. Possible Complications and Symptoms: These endometrial growths can cause pain, infertility, and other problems. Menstrual blood flows from the uterus and out of the body through the vagina, but the blood and tissue shed from endometrial growths has no way of leaving the body. This results in internal bleeding and inflammation of the surrounding areas, and formation of scar tissue. Endometrial growths are usually not malignant or cancerous. The cause of endometriosis is not known. It is known that excess estrogen can further irritate the disease and cause it to spread. Possible Treatments: Important Supplements Inositol and choline help the liver process estrogen, which at high levels is thought to stimulate endometriosis.

    Treatment and Research Related to Endometriosis
    Up to 20% of American women of childbearing age may have endometriosis, a condition which can cause severe pain or infertility. Endometrium is the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus. In women of childbearing age who are not pregnant, endometrium normally is shed each month as menstrual flow. Endometriosis is characterized by tissue that looks and acts like endometrium, but is located outside the uterus, usually in the abdominal cavity. This misplaced tissue reacts to the menstrual cycle the same way normal endometrium does. It breaks apart and begins to bleed at the end of each menstrual cycle. However, there is no place for blood to go. As a result, tissue around the area of endometriosis may become swollen and inflamed, producing scar tissue and lesions. Endometriosis is usually relieved by menopause, although estrogen-replacement therapy may cause the tissue to grow back.
    Treatments for Endometriosis
    There is no absolute cure, since endometriosis can reoccur after treatment. However, treatment may alleviate symptoms and improve fertility. The course of treatment is largely dictated by whether the patient wants to reduce pain, become pregnant or both.

    What is endometriosis?
    Endometriosis is a disease in which cells that look and act like the cells that line the uterus (endometrial cells) are found in other locations in the body, usually in the pelvis . These cells can attach to the ovaries or fallopian tubes ; the outer surface of the uterus, the bowels, or other abdominal organs; or, rarely, to other organs and structures in the body. The places where the cells attach are called implants, or lesions. Endometrial cells that are found outside the uterus respond to hormones released during the menstrual cycle in the same way as endometrial cells that are located in the uterus. At the beginning of the normal menstrual cycle, when the lining of the uterus is shed and menstrual bleeding begins, the sites of these abnormally located cells (implants) may swell and bleed.

    Imagine being told that all evidence and all signs of Endometriosis had been resolved; you no longer had any indication of the disease. It had cleared up and you were free now to get back to living your life. Endometriosis was no longer the focus of your existence. This scenario is not fiction. It is fact. It happened to me. I was diagnosed with one of the worst cases of Endometriosis my gynaecologist had seen and was advised to have a total hysterectomy when I was only in my late 20s. I never touched a single drug being offered by orthodox medicine, as a treatment for Endometriosis. I had an intuitive feeling it was wrong for me and could do more harm than good.
