In endometriosis, dislocated cell aggregates from the lining of the uterus (endometrium) occur outside the uterine cavity. These cell islands are called endometriosis herds. Depending on their location, doctors distinguish three major groups of endometriosis:
Only in endometriosis herds that cause no discomfort and show no growth tendency, can be dispensed with a treatment. Otherwise, the sooner the patient is treated, the better the prospects for long-term freedom from symptoms and healing.
The treatment chosen depends on the extent of the discomfort and the location of endometriosis. Also, the age of the patient and any existing desire to have children are considered in the decision for or against a particular therapy. Accordingly, the treatment may be individually different. You can choose from drug and surgical treatment options that can be used individually or combined with each other.
A certain amount of menstrual pain is normal. However, if the menstrual period is irregular and so painful that it severely limits the quality of life, women should go to the doctor.
Such complaints can be an indication of the disease endometriosis. This is indicated by the European Endometriosis League (EEL). Endometriosis is a medical profession when tissue settles in the abdomen and causes pain.
It is similar to the uterine lining and grows on the ovaries, uterus or fallopian tubes. The disease can be treated with drugs or surgery. However, painful menstrual bleeding can also have other causes and also be a case for the doctor.
According to current estimates, 10 to 15 percent of women between the ages of 15 and 50 in Germany suffer from endometriosis, explains the EEL. Nevertheless, the disease is hardly known. Years often pass from the first symptoms to the diagnosis. Initial evidence of endometriosis is an anonymous and free online self-test of the EEL.
