Endometriosis Surgery Abroad now available for NHS patients. Endometriosis is the name given to the condition where cells like the ones in the lining of the womb (uterus) are found elsewhere in the body. Each month these cells react in the same way to those in the womb, building up and then breaking down and bleeding. Unlike the cells in the womb that leave the body as a period, this blood has no way to escape. It is a chronic and debilitating condition that causes painful or heavy periods. It may also lead to infertility, fatigue and bowel and bladder problems. Around 1.5 million women in the UK are currently living with the condition.
Who can be affected by endometriosis
Endometriosis can affect all women and girls of childbearing age, regardless of race or ethnicity. Every month a woman’s body goes through hormonal changes. Hormones are naturally released which cause the lining of the womb to increase in preparation for a fertilized egg. If pregnancy does not occur, this lining will break down and bleed. This is then released from the body as a period. In endometriosis, cells like the ones in the lining of the womb grow elsewhere in the body. These cells react to the menstrual cycle each month and also bleed. However, there is no way for this blood to leave the body. This can cause inflammation, pain and the formation of scar tissue. Endometriosis can have a significant impact on a woman’s life in a number of ways, including Chronic Pain, Fatigue, Lack of energy, Depression, Problems with a couple’s sex life/relationships, an inability to conceive, difficulty in fulfilling work and social commitments.
The endometriosis symptoms
The endometriosis symptoms can vary in intensity from one woman to another, and the amount of endometriosis does not always correspond to the amount of pain and discomfort experienced. Some women with endometriosis experience symptoms while others do not. The symptoms include painful, heavy, or irregular periods, pain during or after sex, infertility, painful bowel movements, fatigue. All of the symptoms may have other causes and may not necessarily be endometriosis symptoms.
It is important to seek medical advice to clarify the cause of any symptoms. If symptoms change after diagnosis it is important to discuss these changes with your doctor. It is easy to relate all problems to endometriosis, but it may not always be the reason. Retrograde menstruation is when you have a period, some of the endometrium (womb lining) flows backwards, out through the fallopian tubes and into the abdomen. This tissue then implants itself on organs in the pelvis and grows. It has been suggested that most women experience some form of retrograde menstruation, but their bodies are able to clear this tissue and it does not deposit on the organs.
