How to recognize signs of endometriosis
Before listing the main signs of endometriosis, I immediately want to calm down too suspicious people. Even the presence of more of these symptoms does not mean that you have this particular disease. Confirm or refute its presence can only a doctor by visual inspection and carrying out certain studies.
The disease "endometriosis" is exclusively female, since it represents the absenteeism of the internal mucous membrane of the uterus - the endometrium - during menstruation. Moreover, this mucosal layer can settle on other organs, causing adhesions and squeezing of nerve endings, leading to painful sensations and problems in the urogenital system as such.
The main symptoms of the disease
Speaking about the signs of endometriosis, first of all it should be noted too abundant menstrual bleeding, which were previously not completely characteristic of the patient. At the same time, such a phenomenon is accompanied by tangible painful sensations both before menstruation and during them, and after finishing.In addition, a woman should be alerted by bleeding, which may appear in the middle of the cycle, when there is still a decent amount of time before the menstrual period. There are situations when the so-called neglected endometriosis takes place. The signs of this are palpable pains during bowel movements, as well as during urination, if the endometrium is already in the bladder. In addition, pain can occur during intercourse. Especially noticeable pain will be in the event that before such phenomena were not observed. We should not ignore such signs, which are more general in nature: irritability, impulsivity, tearfulness, dizziness and frequent headaches. This is due largely to a violation in the female body of hormones in general. The most insidious signs of endometriosis also lie in the impossibility of conception, and the neglected version of the disease can be the main cause of infertility, which is almost impossible to treat.
How to be?
Every disease, of course, must be treated immediately.However, having found signs of endometriosis in oneself, one should not panic, because a lot in this case will determine the stage of the disease. Unfortunately, in the early stages of endometriosis is very rarely determined, most often it is possible to identify it in a later period, when there are painful sensations in the uterus. In very rare cases, patients may notice a bloody spotting from the cervix, which can appear both before menstruation and after intercourse. However, this symptom may be evidence of a fairly wide list of diseases. Therefore, an extremely qualified specialist will be able to make an accurate diagnosis, subject to an ultrasound examination and taking the necessary tests.
