Endometriosis

endometriosis

When it comes to women’s health, we are here to help. One common problem affecting women is endometriosis. Endometriosis affects the uterus and causes a kind of tissue that normally lines the uterus to grow somewhere else within a woman’s body. It can grow on the ovaries, behind the uterus, on the bowels or even on a bladder. And in rare cases it can grow on other body parts as well.

This often considered “misplaced tissue” can cause pain, infertility and heavy periods. Some women experience no pain or symptoms at all, but others generally experience pain in the abdomen, lower back and pelvic areas. And regularly, having problems getting pregnant can be the first sign a woman has that she even has endometriosis.

The cause of endometriosis is unknown, but pain medicines, hormones, and last resort, surgery can be done to help treat it.

If you are experiencing symptoms, ask your doctor for more information about endometriosis.
