Understanding Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a chronic condition where tissue similar to the lining inside the uterus, called endometrium, grows outside the uterus. This abnormal growth can cause pain, heavy menstrual periods, and fertility problems. Endometriosis commonly affects the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the tissue lining the pelvis, but it can also spread beyond the pelvic organs in rare cases.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

At Neo TrueNorth, we focus on accurate diagnosis and effective management of endometriosis. Common symptoms of endometriosis include:

  • Pelvic pain, especially during menstruation
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Pain with bowel movements or urination
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Infertility
  • Fatigue, diarrhea, constipation, bloating, and nausea

To diagnose endometriosis, our healthcare team conducts a thorough medical history review, physical examination, and may recommend the following tests:

  • Pelvic Exam: To feel for abnormalities in the pelvic region.
  • Ultrasound: To identify cysts associated with endometriosis.
  • MRI: For detailed images of the reproductive organs.
  • Laparoscopy: A minimally invasive surgical procedure to definitively diagnose and sometimes treat endometriosis.

Treatment Options

At Neo TrueNorth, we offer a range of treatments tailored to individual needs, including:

  • Medication: Pain relievers, hormonal therapies, and contraceptives to manage symptoms and slow endometrial growth.
  • Surgery: Laparoscopic surgery to remove or reduce endometrial tissue and adhesions, improving pain and fertility.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Dietary changes, exercise, and stress management techniques to support overall health and symptom relief.
