- Pain during intercourse.
- Abdominal pain.
- Painful mensural cycles.
Endometriosis Scoring System:
- Stage 1: Minimal
- Stage 2: mild
- Stage 3 moderate
- Stage 4 severe
Stage 1 and stage 2 can cause severe pain for some, and more advanced disease may not cause much discomfort for others.
Endometriosis is diagnosed through a laparoscopy. Laparoscopy is minimally invasive surgery. The surgeon uses a laparoscope, a thin telescope-like instrument, through a very small incision in the abdomen to look for endometriosis.
Surgery can benefit those in pain or having sub-fertility regardless of stage. Early endometriosis still causes an inflammatory response around the tubes and ovaries that disrupt conception. Thus, the negative impact on fertility. Removal of endometriosis enhances the health of the reproductive system, it does not just maintain it.
With more advanced endometriosis (stages 3 & 4), surgery can help treat endometriosis. With surgery many patients are worries about further damaging their infertility. Proper surgery should remove pain-causing endometriosis while maintaining the health of the reproductive system. Educate and empower yourself about your endometriosis and treatment options.
