March’s Tip from Dr. Polko

cervical cancer

March is Endometriosis Awareness Month

Endometriosis is a chronic disease that is very painful and can affect over 6 million females in the U.S. Endometriosis is when tissue similar to that lining the uterus is found in other parts of the body, typically in the abdomen. This tissue acts the same as that in the uterus, going through monthly cycles of building up and then breaking down and shedding. The broken down tissue and trapped blood can cause inflammation, pain, infertility, scar tissue buildup and adhesions. The exact cause of endometriosis is not known but several theories exist.

Symptoms of endometriosis include:

• Pain before and during periods

• Pain with sex

• Infertility

• Fatigue

• Painful urination during periods

• Painful bowel movements during periods

• Other Gastrointestinal upsets such as diarrhea, constipation, nausea.

Endometriosis is typically diagnosed after a minor surgical procedure called a laparoscopy that can show the location and extent of the invading tissue.
