Signs You Might Have Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a disorder that can cause tissue to grow on the outside of the uterine cavity which can become infected and can bring about painful side effects. The guide below should serve as a starting point for you to become more acquainted with the possible signs of endometriosis, but if you are concerned it's important that you seek a professional opinion from your Arcadia, CA, health experts, Dr. Anya Rose and Dr. Megan Gau of Rose Women's Health.

Three Possible Signs

The endometrium is the lining of the uterus, endometriosis occurs when endometrial-like tissue begins to grow on the outside of the uterus, possibly including the ovaries and the bowel, and when these become inflamed the symptoms begin to arise.

Pain is the most common symptom of endometriosis, specifically pelvic pain. But it also involves painful periods and cramps, along with pain during sexual intercourse, sometimes lower back pain, and discomfort during bowel movements.

Heavy menstrual bleeding and bleeding in between periods are both another possible sign of endometriosis.

The third is infertility, which could be a sign of a number of issues, all of which should be considered by your doctor.


The severity of pain does not indicate the severity of the condition, you could be experiencing very mild discomfort while the disease could be in advanced and serious stages, and the reverse is also possible so it's very important to see your gynecologist so they can monitor your condition, especially if you are experiencing two or more of the possible signs.
