Is endometriosis dangerous?

Endometriosis is not life-threatening but is one of the causes of pain during menstruation and if not treated in time can cause infertility in women.

1. What is endometriosis?

Endometrial is the mucous layer that covers the inside of the uterus, which is responsible for protecting the fetus during pregnancy, this mucous layer is affected by the female hormone estrogen, therefore, every month when the concentration of estrogen decreases, this lining peels off to form menstruation. Thus this layer of mucous membranes is only in the uterus chamber. However, due to some reason that these mucous membranes are located outside the uterus, it is called endometriosis.

2. Causes of endometriosis

The causes of endometriosis are currently unknown, however, it is hypotheses that some causes such as: During menstruation, a little blood and tissue can get out of the vagina into the pelvic cavity, inside the lower abdomen. In women who have had sex, the cause may be intercourse during menstruation, the penis has pushed the neurodoma blood backwards. For post-birth women, endometriosis can be a consequence of cesarean section or interference with the uterus that makes the lining of the uterus fall into the abdomen.

3. Endometriosis warning signs

Endometriosis is usually asymptoatic, easily confused with the usual signs of women during menstruation. You can get endometriosis if:

  • You experience pain before and/or during menstruation, not after the first day or two. In some women, there is a feeling of very severe pain and they have to quit school or take time off work.
  • Pain during sex or when going to the bathroom. Some women have pain in the lower abdomen, on either side or in the back
  • Headache, fatigue, chest pain during menstruation
  • Feeling sad or anxious for long periods of time

4. Is endometriosis dangerous?

Endometriosis is not life-threatening, but it causes severe pain during menstruation, pain during sex, vaginal bleeding after sex, blood in the stool or urine, …

Endometriosis also causes inflammation that sticks to the pelvic region, two uterine proboscises twisted or inflamed causing sclerosis, making it difficult to ovulate, conceive.

5. Is endometriosis pregnant?

About 30% of women with endometriosis have difficulty with pregnancy. Infertility caused by endometriosis may be associated with a number of causes. The first is if endometriosis affects the ovaries and/or ovate ducts. An egg must go from the ovaries, through the ovulation and to the uterus for fertilization before transplanting into the lining of the uterus. If a female has endometriosis in the lining of the ovulation, tissue can keep the egg from going to the uterus. Endometriosis can damage eggs or sperm. While doctors do not know exactly why this happens, one hypothesis is that endometriosis causes greater levels of inflammation in the body. At this time, the body releases compounds that can damage or destroy eggs, sperm. This can make it difficult for the person to become pregnant.

Endometriosis makes it difficult for the person to conceive, however most women with endometriosis can still become pregnant without any medical help. For women diagnosed with severe endometriosis (stage III/IV) who want to become pregnant, about 75% will be able to do so – two-thirds are naturally pregnant and a third are pregnant with the help of in vi vismable inse fertilization (IVF).
