Symptoms

 

Although endometriosis is common and nonmalignant, the results of it are not always asymptomatic. Most women go through menstruation for around 50 years and can initially be unaware of their condition. Women who started early in their teens tend to write it off as merely painful menstruation, unfortunately allowing the condition to progress to more severe levels over the years. Thus, even those who are not facing severe irregularities in their menstruation should make sure to receive medical attention to assure early diagnosis and management, just in case it is endometriosis. The abnormal tissue formed by the condition can lead to dysmenorrhea (menstrual cramps), dyspareunia (painful intercourse), local inflammation that leads to adhesions, chronic pain, and infertility. The severity of these symptoms can vary between patients based on where the condition presents itself and the general differences in anatomy among patients so their severity does not accurately indicate the degree of the condition. Therefore, regular gynecological check-ups are vital to recognize and begin treatment of the condition before it becomes out of hand
