Endometriosis is a common condition among women aged 25 to 35, and sometimes older. This health disorder occurs when cells lining the uterus begin to grow elsewhere in a woman’s body.
Symptoms of endometriosis may include:
- Abdominal pain
- Irregular uterine bleeding
- Problems with infertility
Endometriosis is also known in some cases to be genetic. The doctors at The Group for Women offer many services for the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis. Pelvic examinations and transvaginal ultrasounds are two methods we can use to determine if you have endometriosis.
Depending on the severity of your condition and other factors such as age and your desire to have children, we may suggest medication and/or surgery to relieve pain and other symptoms. If you are past childbearing age or do not wish to get pregnant, your doctor can discuss other options.
At The Group for Women, we care about your health. When you visit any of our doctors for treatment of endometriosis and other conditions, we will counsel you with regards to the best option for your body and health, and will see you through treatment and recovery with the utmost care. If you have questions about treatment, we are happy to answer them.
