On the Teen Scene:
Endometriosis: Painful, but Treatable
by Dixie Farley "The pain was so sharp I thought I'd ruptured my appendix, but the doctor said, no, it wasn't that. It was between my periods, so I didn't connect it with menstruation. I was 16. "Over the next 10 years, I had more and more of these 'pain attacks,' and my periods gradually became heavier and more painful. "When I was pregnant with my first child, I was virtually pain-free. But shortly after he was born, each month around ovulation, I went to bed in tears from horrible pain. And I bled so much during menstruation I didn't dare leave the house. I went back to the doctor. It was endometriosis." A woman from Des Moines, Iowa

Endometriosis is an enigmatic disease affecting about 7% of reproductive-aged women -approximately 5 million Americans. Although they may suffer significant symptoms ranging from pelvic pain to infertility, most of these women do not know that they have endometriosis,. Physicians' understanding of (1) the clinical presentation of endometriosis, (2) its proper diagnosis and staging, and (3) the management of its sequele have improved dramatically over the past few years. The result has been better, more cost-effective patient care. Definition
Endometriosis is the presence of endometrial tissue (normally found only on the inside of the uterus) in locations outside the uterus. This tissue reacts to estrogen and progesterone. The usual location is in the pelvis (on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, or bladder), but endometriosis has also been found in sites outside the pelvis (including omentum, small intestine, appendix, anterior abdominal wall, surgical scars, diaphragm, lung, urinary tract, and musculoskeletal and neural systems). This endometrial tissue reacts to hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle, just as endometrial tissue lining the inside of the uterus reacts during the normal ovulatory cycle. Prevalence and Incidence
The prevalence and incidence of endometriosis depends on the population of women being studied, ranging from 1 to 50%. It has been reported to occur in 10 - 15% of women undergoing diagnostic laparoscopy, 2 - 5% of women undergoing tubal sterilization, 30 -40% of infertile women having laparoscopy, and 14 - 53% of women with pelvic pain.

This photograph demonstrates the varied appearances of endometrial implants. Most of these implants are on the left pelvic sidewall, under the ovary. The white, black, and deep scarred implants should be excised to assure complete removal. White Endometriotic Lesions The outlined area contains both black endometrial implants (left side) and white scarred implants (right side). The entire area is hormonally active and should be excised. This area overlies the right side of the pelvis beneath the right ovary.

The Facts on Endometriosis
By Carma Haley
Endometriosis affects approximately one in every 20 women in the United States, according to the National Organization of Obstetric and Gynecologic Medicine. As the condition of endometriosis can cause extreme discomfort, these women live with repeated cycles of pain that affect their every day lives, their time with their families, their jobs and even their ability to conceive a child. What is endometriosis? Why is it so painful and how does it affect a woman's ability to have a child? These answers are not simple ones, but to women who suffer from endometriosis and it's complications these answers are needed so desperately, it pains the heart as well. According to Dr. David Michael, faculty specialist in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Chicago, Ill., endometriosis is "the presence of functioning endometrial glands (the glands that normally line the uterus which produce tissue that prepare the uterus for conception) that occurs outside the uterine cavity. These glands can be located anywhere inside the abdominal cavity or attached to the organs within." The areas inside the abdominal cavity that can be affected by endometriosis include the abdominal wall, kidneys, ovaries, bladder, fallopian tubes, the outside of the uterus itself or even the areas in-between these organs, which are referred to as "cul-de-sacs."

Alternatives to hysterectomy, surgery for removal of fibroid tumors, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, adenomyosis and other noncancerous conditions. Institute located in Glendale, California.
Home FAQ Weblog About the Doctor ... Media
For over a decade the Institute has advocated treating fibroid tumors, adenomyosis and ovarian cysts by removing only the affected portion of the organ involved. We do not perform hysterectomy or oophorectomy (removal of ovaries) for fibroid tumors or any of these conditions regardless of size, number or location of tumors.
This web site is dedicated to educating you about a proven procedure that uses state of the art laser surgical techniques called Female Alternative Surgery (FAS). Please visit The Education Center for more information.
"A hysterectomy for benign fibroid tumors or ovarian cysts is an archaic procedure from traditional medicine and lacks a sensitivity to the needs of the female patient. It is likened to castration, in that it unnecessarily removes the female reproductive organs."

December, 2002 Download this factsheet Many women experience painful periods. In a minority of cases, this can be caused by endometriosis, a condition in which small pieces of the endometrium (womb lining) grow outside the womb. Endometriosis occurs in 1-15% of women of childbearing age. In many women it causes no symptoms, but in others it can cause severe pain and may reduce the chances of becoming pregnant.
What is endometriosis?
During the menstrual cycle the lining of the uterus (womb), known as the endometrium, gradually thickens and fills with blood as it prepares for the arrival of a fertilised egg. If the egg is not fertilised, the uterus lining breaks down and is lost as the monthly period. Sometimes small pieces of endometrium grow on organs outside the uterus. This is called endometriosis. The endometriosis goes through the same monthly changes as the uterus lining; sometimes swelling and bleeding into the body cavity, which can cause inflammation and pain. Rubbery bands of scar tissue, called adhesions, may form. These can attach organs and tissues together and affect surrounding organs.

The patient's family history is significant for a history of secondary infertility in her mother following the birth of this patient. The patient's sister is four years younger than the patient and is herself infertile. Physical examination is unremarkable with the exception of the pelvic and rectal examinations. Bimanual pelvic examination reveals mild tenderness in the left adnexal area with apparent fixation of the left ovary to the uterus. Vaginal ultrasonography revealed a tender 3 cm left ovarian cyst. (Figure 1) Figure 1 Figure 2 There was tenderness in the cul de sac as well as nodularity involving the left uterosacral ligament. Rectal examination was painful with marked induration approximately 3 cms from the anus. A barium enema was obtained and demonstrated a "tethering effect" in the area of the rectosigmoid as well as in the distal ileum (Figure 2).

Endometriosis: Does It Affect You?
W hen I was first asked to write an article about endometriosis my response was a simple one, "sure, I’ll do it." As I began to gather research I thought to myself how quick and easy this was going to be. I already possessed a great deal of medical literature on the subject and I thought I could easily regurgitate a page full of statistics, case studies, and theories. While I was revising my second draft something occurred to me, I realized that my article had no human perspective at all, it was in fact, just cold recited statistics. This was absurd, I thought to myself. You see, I live with endometriosis everyday. So drafts one and two were quickly thrown into my recycle bin, in hopes that maybe I could help even one person to understand this debilitating condition. What is Endometriosis? Endometriosis is a hormonal and immune condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus (endometrium) is found outside the uterus. It is usually found in the abdomen, fallopian tubes, ovaries, between the vagina and rectum, and the ligaments supporting the uterus. Endometrial growths may also be found in the bladder, bowel, cervix, and less commonly in places like the lungs or arms. Symptoms Diagnosis Diagnosing endometriosis, or "endo" as we refer to it, can be extremely difficult. The symptoms listed above can also be signs of a variety of other conditions from ovarian cysts to a pelvic infection. Endo was once falsely called the "career woman’s disease." We now know that it was titled this because working women generally had more resources to seek continuous medical care.

WHAT IS ENDOMETRIOSIS? Endometriosis is a common gynecological condition. It was described in medical literature more than 300 years ago and has since been recognized as a chronic, painful, and often progressive disease in women. The causes of endometriosis are unknown. Endometrial Implants Endometriosis. Endometriosis occurs when cells from the mucus membrane lining the uterus ( endometrium ) form implants that attach, grow, and function outside the uterus, generally in the pelvic region. [ See Box The Female Reproductive System.] Endometrial implants consist of both following cell types:
  • Gland cells. These cells secrete hormones and other fluids and are normally located in the uterine lining.
  • Stroma cells. These are the framework cells that build supportive tissue.
Endometrial cells contain receptors that bind to estrogen and progesterone, which promote uterine growth and thickening. During endometriosis these cells become implanted in organs and structures outside the uterus, where these hormonal activities continue to occur, causing bleeding and scarring.
Endometrial implants vary widely in size, shape, and color. Over the years, they may diminish in size or disappear or they may grow.

Andrew Prentice senior lecturer University Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Rosie Hospital, Cambridge CB2 2SW Many doctors, both general practitioners and specialists, find endometriosis difficult to manage. Equally, many patients are dissatisfied with the care they receive. Endometriosis is the presence of endometrium at sites outside the endometrial cavity. It has long been known that the symptoms experienced by a patient may seem disproportionate to the extent of the disease observed within that patient's pelvis. For the patient it is not the endometriosis that is important but rather the illness that they experience.

What is endometriosis?
The word "endometriosis" (say: "end-oh-me-tree-oh-sis") means a problem with the lining of the uterus. The lining is called the endometrium. Normally, every month when you have your period, the lining (which is also called endometrial tissue) comes out in your menstrual flow. Endometrial tissue is usually only inside your uterus. However, if you have endometriosis, tissue from the lining of the uterus moves through the fallopian tubes and gets on your ovaries, in your pelvis, on your bladder or in other areas. When you have your period, this tissue swells and bleeds, just like the lining of your uterus. This is often painful, and scar tissue can form in your pelvic area. Return to top
Is endometriosis harmful to me?
Endometriosis may hurt, but it doesn't cause cancer or affect your overall health, although it might make it harder to get pregnant.
