What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a mysterious and very troublesome condition which affects 1 out of 10 women. What exactly is endometriosis? Endometrium is a mucous membrane which normally covers the inside of the uterus. Its every appearance outside of the uterus is abnormal. There are several theories on how uterine cells start to grow in the wrong places, such as intestines, bladder, fallopian tubes or even lungs, the brain or CNS. According to one of them menstrual blood moves back into the peritoneal cavity, while the other one says that cells transform into endometrium under the influence of various unknown factors. The influence of genetic factors and the activity of the immune system seem to play the most important role here. However, there is still no single thesis that would explain the causes of this condition.

There are several types of possible changes:

– infiltrates, i.e. a thickening with a changed tissue inside,
– cysts,
– superficial implants.


Diagnostics of endometriosis

What are the symptoms? First of all – pain, caused by enlargement of the spot (focus) of endometriosis before menstruation and during the period, since the blood has no way to exit your body, it becomes trapped and applies pressure on the surrounding tissues.

Due to the fact that such foci may be located in many different places, the ailments which patients report to us are the most varied:

– painful sexual intercourse,
– severe pain during ovulation,
– continuous fatigue and general weakness,
– spotting between periods,
– heavy menstrual bleeding,
– chronic back pain and pelvic pain,
– constipation and diarrhoea,
– gastrointestinal bleeding,
– presence of blood in the urine,
– infertility.


According to our experience not every woman suffering from endometriosis has problems with getting pregnant. Impaired fertility is found mostly when endometriosis has affected ovaries or fallopian tubes which has lead to adhesions. The adhesions obstruct the tube and keep the egg and sperm from uniting.

The complications of endometriosis also include hormonal imbalance and abnormal immune reactions in the uterine cavity that prevent embryo implantation. In such a case 40% of affected women have miscarriages.

How to diagnose endometriosis? Most often we carry out a thorough interview combined with observation, and we perform an ultrasound scan. However, laparoscopic biopsy to obtain samples for histopathological examination is crucial.


Treatment of endometriosis

The treatment method depends on the type of lesions, their location and intensity of symptoms. If you have noticed the above-mentioned symptoms, consult our specialist without delay.

Do not let the foci of endometriosis spread around your body. Stop the condition from developing.
