Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a painful disorder in which tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus -the endometrium - grows outside your uterus. 

Endometriosis Clinical Trials

Endometriosis most commonly involves your ovaries, fallopian tubes and the tissue lining your pelvis. Rarely, will endometrial tissue spread beyond pelvic organs. With endometriosis, displaced endometrial tissue continues to act as it normally would – it thickens, breaks down and bleeds with each menstrual cycle. Because this displaced tissue has no way to exit your body, it becomes trapped.  Endometriosis can cause pain – sometimes severe- especially during menstrual periods. Fertility problems also may develop. Fortunately, effective treatments are available. Endometriosis clinical trials, like those at CNS Healthcare, can help you explore new options.

More About Endometriosis

The severity of your pain isn’t necessarily a reliable indicator of the extent of the condition. You could have mild endometriosis with severe pain, or you could have advanced endometriosis with little or no pain.

Endometriosis is sometimes mistaken for other conditions that can cause pelvic pain, such as pelvic inflammatory disease or ovarian cysts. It may be confused with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). IBS can accompany endometriosis, which can complicate the diagnosis. Endometriosis can be a challenging condition to manage.  An early diagnosis, a multidisciplinary medical team and an understanding of your diagnosis may result in better management of your symptoms. Although the exact cause of endometriosis is not certain, possible explanations include: retrograde menstruation, transformation of peritoneal cells, embryonic cell transformation, surgical scar implantation, endometrial cell transport and immune system disorder.

SIGNS & SYMPTOMS

  • The primary symptom of endometriosis is pelvic pain often associated with menstrual periods. Although many experience cramping during their menstrual periods, those with endometriosis typically describe menstrual pain that’s far worse than usual. Pain also may increase over time. Common signs and symptoms of endometriosis include:

    • Painful periods (dysmenorrhea)

    • Pain with intercourse

    • Pain with bowel movements or urination
