    Endometriosis is a chronic and benign inflammatory disease

    Endometriosis is a chronic and benign inflammatory disease, characterized by the presence of endometrial cells (cells that form the lining uterus, known as endometrium) in the abdominal cavity. 聽Most of the times, it is a condition that cause abdominal and pelvic pain and possible infertility.

    Normally, it can affect about 10% of women in reproductive age, worldwide. In Spain there are 5 million carriers of endometriosis and in Andalusia up to 850 thousand.

    Symptoms

    It mainly affects the peritoneum (thin tissue that lines the pelvic organs), the ovaries, the myometrium (causing adenomyosis), the fallopian tubes, the bladder, the large intestine, and the ureter. Its main symptoms are menstrual pain (cramps), pain during sexual intercourse, burning during urination and chronic pelvic pain.

    It is also one of the main causes of infertility found in women who seek medical attention after not getting pregnant.

    Diagnosis

    With the aim of getting an early diagnosis, we emphasize to suspicious women the importance of scheduling appointments with specialists in which they will undergo tests (ultrasound and pelvic MRI for mapping of deep endometriosis), in addition to the doctor consultation and detailed gynecological examination. If they have a positive result for the disease, they can begin the most appropriate and successful treatment.

    Treatment

    Regarding treatment, we say that it needs a multidisciplinary approach, starting from changes in diet and in physical and psychological activity, supplying medication (anti-inflammatories, hormones such as contraceptives) and performing minimally invasive surgeries for patients who do not have relief from pelvic pain with the drug treatment.
