Endometriosis: Everything you need to know

 
By Reproclinic Editorial Committee
 

Endometriosis is one of the main causes of infertility, which affects many women (1 in every 10) yet despite this, there is still much ignorance about it.

 

What should you know about endometriosis?

This disease consists of the appearance and growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterus, especially in the ovaries, but also behind the uterus, in the bladder or in the intestine. This tissue growth causes severe menstrual pain, and may even include chronic pelvic pain.

The problem is that most women who suffer from it can go years without it being diagnosed. For this reason, from Reproclinic we insist on the importance of carrying out annual gynecological examinations and placing ourselves in the hands of specialists in any situation that goes beyond normality.

The ignorance of the symptoms by women and the lack of specialists in this specific field of gynecology contribute to the late diagnosis of the disease. Unfortunately, endometriosis has no cure. But a timely diagnosis, the consequent treatment and, of course, the monitoring of the condition, can help improve the day to day of women who suffer from it. Regarding the possibility of being mothers, the treatments of assisted reproduction and specifically the vitrification of ovocytes, supposes a great advantage.
