Endometriosis Endometriosis, a cause of female infertility, is a condition in which endometrial tissue, the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus, grows outside the uterus and attaches to other organs in the abdominal cavity such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes. Endometriosis is a progressive disease that tends to get worse over time and can reoccur after treatment. Symptoms include painful menstrual periods, abnormal menstrual bleeding and pain during or after sexual intercourse. The endometrial tissue outside your uterus responds to your menstrual cycle hormones the same way the tissue inside your uterus responds - it swells and thickens, then sheds to mark the beginning of the next cycle. The blood that is shed from the endometrial tissue in your abdominal cavity has no place to go, resulting in pools of blood causing an inflammation that forms scar tissue. The scar tissue can block the fallopian tubes or interfere with ovulation. Another result of endometriosis is the formation of ovarian cysts called endometrioma that may also interfere with ovulation.

The Center for Endometriosis Care was founded to diagnose, treat, and educate women with endometriosis. Free literature and a newsletter are available.
Endometriosis is a troubling disease that affects millions of women worldwide. It is responsible for hundreds of thousands of missed work hours, pain ranging from mild to crippling, and, for some women, infertility.
The Center for Endometriosis Care (CEC) is formed around four principles:
  • Recognizing subtle disease in all its manifestations. Removing all endometriosis while preserving a woman's organs. Performing pathological examination on all excised tissue. Treating women with respect as partners in health care.

Historically, medical textbooks teach that endometriosis looks like black powder burns. However, many studies have shown that black implants are not even the most common. Clear, white, red, yellow, blue and gray implants can also occur. A surgeon who looks only for black spots can miss significant disease. The CEC medical staff has many years and thousands of cases of experience in disease recognition. At the Center for Endometriosis Care, we consider any abnormal area of the peritoneum to be endometriosis until proven otherwise by pathology.
Once endometriosis is recognized, it is removed via laparoscopic excision (LAPEX). Although this is a meticulous, highly detailed operation, most women are treated on an out-patient basis.

What is Endometriosis? End ometriosis is a painful, chronic disease that affects 5 1/2 million women and girls in the USA and Canada, and millions more worldwide. It occurs when tissue like that which lines the uterus (tissue called the endometrium) is found outside the uterus usually in the abdomen on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and ligaments that support the uterus; the area between the vagina and rectum; the outer surface of the uterus; and the lining of the pelvic cavity. Other sites for these endometrial growths may include the bladder, bowel, vagina, cervix, vulva, and in abdominal surgical scars. Less commonly they are found in the lung, arm, thigh, and other locations. This misplaced tissue develops into growths or lesions which respond to the menstrual cycle in the same way that the tissue of the uterine lining does: each month the tissue builds up, breaks down, and sheds. Menstrual blood flows from the uterus and out of the body through the vagina, but the blood and tissue shed from endometrial growths has no way of leaving the body. This results in internal bleeding, breakdown of the blood and tissue from the lesions, and inflammation and can cause pain, infertility, scar tissue formation, adhesions, and bowel problems.

ERC Angel TM here D espite the vast number of women and adolescents in the world suffering from the reproductive and immunological disease Endometriosis, the illness remains under-diagnosed, under-researched, under-funded and under-treated. There is still, as yet, no definitive cure, despite what less-informed sources would have you believe. T hroughout this site you will find articles, news and information pertaining to the disease, as well as resources for support. This site is not intended to suggest or replace medical advice given to you by your doctor; but rather, to educate and empower you to make your own best - informed - decisions concerning your health. While currently incurable, it is entirely possible to effectively manage Endometriosis and live well in spite of the disease . The keys to successfully battling this painful disease include early diagnosis, effective treatment with a true Endometriosis specialist not an OB-GYN generalist), the support of those who understand, keeping abreast of the latest information on the disease, and a positive outlook.

WHAT IS endometriosis? On rare occasions it can be found in other distant sites.COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT endometriosis. Am I too young to have endometriosis?
S E C T I O N S WHAT IS ENDOMETRIOSIS? Endometriosis is a condition where endometrium (the lining of the uterus) is found in locations outside the uterus. This misplaced tissue may be found on the ovaries, uterus, bowel, bladder utero-sacral ligaments (ligaments that hold the uterus in place), or peritoneum (covering lining of the pelvis and abdominal cavity). On rare occasions it can be found in other distant sites. COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT ENDOMETRIOSIS Am I too young to have Endometriosis? Endo can cause problems any time between your first period and your last period (at 45-55 years old). What happens if I don't get it treated? It is impossible to tell you exactly what will happen. However, in general, if the disease is not treated the problems tend to get worse. Can Endometriosis be cured? If diagnosed early it can usually be treated effectively, but it may occur again. Does this mean I can't have children? Some women may have difficulty getting pregnant, but many don't. The best thing is to have the endo treated as eariy as possible.

Endometriosis Association
Education Support Research What is Endometriosis?
Endometriosis is a puzzling disease affecting women in their reproductive years. The name comes from the word "endometrium," which is the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus and builds up and sheds each month in the menstrual cycle. In endometriosis, tissue like the endometrium is found outside the uterus, in other areas of the body. In these locations outside the uterus, the endometrial tissue develops into what are called "nodules," "tumors," "lesions," "implants," or "growths." These growths can cause pain, infertility, and other problems. The most common locations of endometrial growths are in the abdomen-involving the ovaries , fallopian tubes, the ligaments supporting the uterus, the area between the vagina and the rectum , the outer surface of the uterus , and the lining of the pelvic cavity . Sometimes the growths are also found in abdominal surgery scars, on the intestines or in the rectum, on the bladder, vagina, cervix, and vulva (external genitals). Endometrial growths have also been found outside the abdomen, in the lung, arm, thigh, and other locations, but these are uncommon. Endometrial growths are generally not malignant or cancerous, they are a type of normal type of tissue outside the normal location. However, in recent decades there has been an increased frequency of malignancy occurring or being recognized in conjunction with endometriosis. Like the lining of the uterus, endometrial growths usually respond to the hormones of the menstrual cycle. They build up tissue each month, break down, and cause bleeding.

What is endometriosis? Endometriosis is a disease that affects more than 500,000 women in Canada. It occurs when the tissue that normally lines the uterus is found in other places where it shouldn't be. This displaced tissue responds to the hormonal cycle the same way as the cells in the uterus by growing and then bleeding. Noone knows what causes "endo" but if someone in your family has it, you are more likely to have it too. What are the symptoms? The symptoms can include:
  • pelvic pain, especially with your period
  • infertility
  • irregular or heavy periods
  • pain with intercourse

Some women experience all these symptoms and more while some women experience none of them. If you have any of these symptoms, you should discuss them with your doctor. How is endometriosis diagnosed and treated? The only way your doctor can confirm you have endo is by surgery. The doctor will check your organs for evidence of endo, usually by laparoscope, and remove some tissue to confirm the diagnosis. At present there is no cure for endo. Surgery, medication, or a combination of both can be used to treat it. The type of treatment you receive will depend on you and your doctor.

20. Endometriosis Support - London, Ontario, Canada
A support group for people suffering from endometriosis. Describes the condition, its symptoms and effects, and lists meeting times and related resources.
The Endometriosis Support Network provides information and support to women living in and around London Ontario, Canada. The organization provides free assistance to women afflicted with endometriosis, and works to increase public awareness of this illness.
Endometriosis is a hormonal and immunological disease where the tissue lining the uterus is found outside of the uterus. Endometriosis can affect women from their early teens through menopause. Many women suffer for years without proper diagnosis. Endometriosis symptoms can vary from mild to completely debilitating. It is frequently the underlying cause of menstrual cramps. Endometriosis is also the leading cause of female infertility. It can lead to severe emotional distress, and may profoundly affect the lives of the sufferer and those close to her. There is no cure for endometriosis, although treatment is available. Endometriosis is a poorly understood disease. Increasing awareness and providing support is the goal of our organization. More information on symptoms, diagnosis and treatment.
