Endometriosis symptoms are cause by the lining of the uterus, the endometrium, which migrates to other sites like the ovaries, cervix, fallopian tubes, rectum, bowels, bladder and even brain and lungs. When endometrial tissue becomes displaced it forms endometrial implants.
These endometrial implants respond to hormonal regulation during the monthly cycle causing inflammation and damage the organs where they are located. Endometriosis is a condition that affects millions of women worldwide and about 40% of women who have endometriosis will have trouble getting pregnant.
There is a large number of endometriosis symptoms that many women may or may not experience.
The following are the signs and symptoms of endometriosis:
Natural remedies for endometriosis, like herbs, are very helpful in helping decrease endometriosis symptoms.
The stages of endometriosis are a way to medically classify the degree of severity of endometriosis in respect to the damage caused by endometrial implants outside of the uterus.
The symptoms of endometriosis don't necessarily correlate with the severity of your symptoms or the stage of the disease.
Some women with mild endometriosis will experience severe symptoms and still be able to conceive, while women with severe endometriosis may not have any symptoms at all, but the damage already caused by endometriosis will prevent pregnancy.
Learn more about endometriosis stages here.
If your endometriosis symptoms get really severe, your doctor may recommend endometriosis surgery through laparoscopy to see where the implants are located.
During laparoscopy, the doctor will also be able to remove the implants.
In most women, pregnancy will become a breeze after laparoscopy surgery, if the damage caused by the implants did not affect the ovaries, fallopian tubes in a large extent.
In others, endometriosis will come back after a few months after surgery, reducing the likelihood of pregnancy even further.
If you chose to have surgery to remove endometriosis, these endometriosis surgery affirmations will help you during your recovery.
If you are trying to conceive and you suspect endometriosis, talk to your doctor. It would be a very good idea to chart your fertility.
It has been noticed that persistently high basal body temperature during menses can be related to endometriosis.
These studies have been done in very young women and they have reported a strong correlation between endometriosis symptoms and high basal body temperature (BBT) in these cases.
Also women with endometriosis tend to have heavy spotting at mid cycle and spotting after their periods. The basal body temperature is your body temperature at rest. It should be measured first thing in the morning before any physical activity.
In order to cure endometriosis many factors have to be taken into consideration.
The symptoms of endometriosis are mostly due to the presence of endometrial implants in other areas of the body.
They are portions of endometrial tissues and cells that a located outside of the uterus and form scars and adhesions.
Endometriosis stages may and may not be related to the intensity and severity of the endometriosis symptoms.
Endometriosis pain is more likely associated with the location of the endometrial implants.
The main cause of endometriosis is increased excess estrogen in the body that stimulates the growth, development and spread of endometriosis around the body.
According to Dr. John Lee, endometriosis decreases under the influence of natural progesterone that counteracts the negative effects of excess estrogen.
To have a positive effect, it is important to use only bio-identical natural progesterone Natural progesterone, which is the same as th eprogesterone produced in the body.
The synthetic version, like Provera or medroxyprogesterone, are not the same as natural progesterone cream. These are uswally prescribed as oral medication.
They can produce severe side effects including increased risk of cancer, menstrual bleeding and heart disease and stroke.
Endometriosis and fertility are definitely connected. Among all the identified endometriosis symptoms, infertility is the one that gets the most attention and treatment.
Usually, women who do not expertise endometriosis symptoms will be diagnosed with endometriosis because have difficulty getting pregnant.
In these case, a laparoscopy examination will confirm the presence of endometrial implants around key reproductive organs.
The real reason is not completely understood, but abnormal hormonal factors and anatomical factors due to the presence of scarring are definitely responsible.
In fact, the presence of adhesions and scars in the pelvic area may distort the anatomical organs structure preventing ovulation, implantation, and fertilization.
On the other hand, it has been postulated that misplaced endometrial tissue can produce hormones or substances that negatively affect the release of the egg from the ovary, the fertilization of the egg by the sperm and the implantation of the embryo in the uterus.
When endometriosis causes distortion of a woman's internal anatomy we have a condition that is often referred to as a "frozen pelvis," where the reproductive and pelvic internal organs fuse together as a result of endometrial implants.
Every woman affected by this condition will experience a very unique endometriosis diagnosis.
There are cases where the intestine and the uterus are fuse together or where the bladder is fused to the abdominal wall. Any combination is possible.
There is an array of very peculiar endometriosis symptoms that is related to the location of the endometrial implants.
For example, some women experience chest pain, or bloody sputum as a result of endometriosis in the lungs.
Other may experience severe headache before or during menses as a result of endometriosis in the brain.
Bleeding from the nose during menses is also another possible symptoms of endometriosis.
