Endometriosis Q & A

What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a condition that occurs when the tissue that lines the uterus – the endometrium – begins growing outside the uterus, most commonly on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, the intestines or the outer wall of the uterus. In a few rare instances, the tissue may spread to areas outside the belly region. These growths are called implants, and they can fluctuate in size and symptoms along with your natural hormonal changes. Endometriosis is most common during childbearing years and implants usually shrink during menopause.

What are the symptoms of endometriosis?

Some women have no symptoms at all; others may only realize they have endometriosis if they have trouble getting pregnant. The most common symptoms are:

  • pelvic pain
  • low back pain before periods
  • severe cramping during periods
  • pain during intercourse
  • abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • pain during bowel movements
  • blood in your bowel movement or urine
  • infertility
  • vaginal bleeding following sex

Symptoms tend to become worse during periods, but some women may have persistent symptoms.

How is endometriosis treated?

Endometriosis cannot be cured, but treatments for symptoms like pain and infertility can help you lead a normal life. The treatment that's used depends on how severe your condition is, can can include the use of hormone therapy to lower estrogen levels and shrink implants, pain medication, IVF or insemination, or surgery. Sometimes, a combination of treatments is necessary.

Once I have treatment, can endometriosis occur again?
