Endometriosis

10% of women aged 15 to 44 experience endometriosis and pelvic pain.

Endometriosis is a chronic condition where some special cells, similar to those found in the uterus, decide to pop up in other parts of your belly and pelvis. These cells can be a bit touchy with hormones and cause various symptoms, like:

  • Having no symptoms at all

  • Trouble getting pregnant

  • Feeling pelvic pain that comes and goes, or sticks around all the time

  • Experiencing pain during sex

Endometriosis can be a bit tricky – it comes in different forms, from small lesions to larger cysts in your ovaries. Surprisingly, how bad it looks doesn't always match up with how much pain you might be feeling.

 

Doctors can spot the more severe cases of endometriosis using fancy pictures like ultrasounds or MRIs. But sometimes, we need to do a surgery called laparoscopy to be sure, especially for milder cases that don't show up on pictures.

 

The good news is, there are different ways to deal with endometriosis. You can try medications – some hormonal, while others not. In more serious cases, or those that don't respond to medication excisional surgery may be the right option.

If you're dealing with pelvic or period pain that's making your daily life challenging, it's a good idea to chat with a gynaecologist.
