Is Endometriosis Curable

Symptoms of Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition that can prevent pregnancy in a woman. It is a disease that is fairly common and can afflict women from their first menstrual cycle through menopause. In rarer cases, endometriosis can affect post-menopausal women as well. Currently, there is no cure for endometriosis. As well, general practitioners often have a difficult time diagnosing endometriosis.

Endometriosis occurs when the endometrium, or uterine lining, grows outside of the uterus. It may grow in areas such as around the ovaries, in the pelvic cavity, sometimes even the bowels or in the bladder. Although very rare, the endometrium can also grow in the lung area.

As the condition progresses, the growths develop into “tumors” or “implants.” While the reference to tumors can be unnerving, endometrium growths are not cancerous or malignant. However, the condition can be severely painful, cause heavy menstruation, and can prevent pregnancy in some cases.

Endometriosis symptoms include pain that is localized in the pelvic, abdominal, or lower back areas.

The severity of the pain does not directly correlate with the amount of endometriosis present in these areas. One can have a small amount of endometriosis growth and feel severe pain. Conversely, one can have a large area of endometriosis growth and feel no pain.

Women who have pain in these areas might want to consult with their gynecologist. Gynecologists are specially trained to diagnose endometriosis.

An MRI or ultrasound should be able to detect endometriosis, but it is not always the best way.

A definitive diagnostic procedure is a laparoscopy.

A laparoscopy is a surgical procedure that involves inserting a tube with an attached light into the abdomen. This procedure will determine the location, size, and extent of the condition. Once endometriosis is detected, treatment options are discussed with the gynecologist, which includes medication, hormone treatments, and surgery.

  1. I have suffered from this for 4 years and had surgery to laser off endo growths from my abdominal cavity three years ago. The endo came back and about a year ago I started depo shots, which stopped the periods and helped. Sometimes the depo seems to wear off early and I will have a period with intense pain. I am trying to find other options to treat the pain besides anti-inflammatories, which have caused ulcers. Any ideas as to what would help with the pain? I plan to have children and would like to avoid a hysterectomy for at least three years.
