5 Signs You May Have Endometriosis
Endometriosis is a painful medical condition in which the endometrial tissue which normally lines the uterus ends up growing outside. Even in women and adolescents who suffer from endometriosis, the normal process of thickening and eventual breakdown of endometrial tissue and the subsequent bleeding takes place during each menstrual cycle. Although endometriosis is said to occur more in women who suffer from fertility problems than in those who are fertile, infertility is not caused due to endometriosis.
Endometriosis as a medical condition is something many women shy away from discussing with each other. Although endometriosis is a commonly seen medical condition among women in the ages of 25-40 as well as adolescents, there is not much awareness about the condition in itself. All the same, it is important to identify the signs of endometriosis so appropriate treatment plans can be put into action.
Here we list 5 common signs that may indicate a possible case of endometriosis.
Pain in the Pelvic region
Pelvic pain is one of the most common symptoms of endometriosis. Pelvic pain is normally accompanied by severe cramping in the abdomen or also in the lower back.
Painful urination or bowel movements
Women suffering from endometriosis also tend to experience episodes of painful urination and bowel movements. Passing urine becomes quite a difficult task for these women.
Women and adolescents suffering from endometriosis also experience irregular or excessive bleeding during each menstrual cycle. Another aspect of this is a consistent bleeding between menstrual cycles. This is not a common experience for women without endometriosis. So, if you or someone you know experiences episodes of consistent bleeding between cycles, it is advisable to consult a doctor.
Women suffering from endometriosis might also experience pain during or after intercourse. This is another of the common symptoms experienced by those with endometriosis.
Fatigue and other symptoms
Fatigue and other symptoms like bloating or nausea, especially during the menstrual cycle are also signs telling you may be suffering from endometriosis.
Watch out for these signs and consult a doctor in advance. If you wish to clear your doubts and wipe the fear of endometriosis from your mind, feel free to contact our team of doctors at Divine Clinic.
