Endometriosis is the appearance of uterine lining tissue outside of the uterus, causing significant pain that is independent from menstrual cycle related cramps.
The inside layer of the uterus is constantly renovated throughout the female menstrual cycle. If the this layer is found outside of the uterus in the abdominal cavity, it is called endometriosis. This misplaced tissue changes throughout the menstrual cycle. How the tissue ends up outside of the uterus is currently not understood.
2-10% of women of childbearing age are affected. Symptoms disappear after menopause. Patients suffer from intense symptoms common during menstruation, such as lower abdominal pains, back pain, and sometimes pain during a bowel movement. Pain during sex and an extended period of menstruation have also been experienced. Many women with endometriosis may have no symptoms at all.
If the misplaced tissue reaches the Fallopian tubes it may cause decreased fertility. Generally endometriosis is known to lead to an increased rate of abortion. If endometriosis affects the ureter, it can cause a backflow of urine. Treatment with hormones can improve symptoms. Besides that, pain can be reduced with anti-inflammatory medication. If hormone therapy shows no results, an operation to remove the lesions can bring about improvements.
