About our Endometriosis news
Latest news on endometriosis, a chronic and painful gynaecological condition that affects an estimated 1 in 10 women of reproductive age. It occurs when the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus, known as the endometrium, grows outside of the uterus, such as on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and other pelvic organs.
The symptoms of endometriosis can vary widely from person to person, but commonly include severe menstrual cramps, chronic pelvic pain, painful intercourse, heavy menstrual bleeding, and infertility. The condition can also cause fatigue, gastrointestinal issues, and other complications.
The cause of endometriosis is not well understood, but it is thought to be related to hormonal imbalances and immune dysfunction. It can be diagnosed through a pelvic exam, ultrasound, or laparoscopy, a minimally invasive surgical procedure.
While there is no cure for endometriosis, there are a variety of treatment options available to manage symptoms and improve quality of life. These can include pain medication, hormone therapy, and surgical removal of the endometrial tissue.
