It is worth noting that some women with endometriosis have very few symptoms or none at all and are diagnosed incidentally, for example during abdominal surgery.
Endometriosis is a benign condition which affects many women during their fertile years. In endometriosis, layers of cells which cover the uterine cavity are found outside the uterus, taking hold at any site within the abdomen, including for example: ovaries, fallopian tubes, vagina, uterine ligaments and more rarely even in places such as the intestine, or lungs.
How is it treated?
Every woman is different and the treatment is individual. A woman’s age, symptoms and desire to have children must be taken into account.
If the priority is to resolve the pain, hormonal contraceptive treatment is often sufficient, but if the lesions are more widespread, a combination of medical and surgical treatment may be required. Unfortunately however, there is no definitive treatment to cure endometriosis.
