Five Symptoms That Help You Identify Endometriosis

 

 

Endometriosis is a common gynecological disease in daily life, which refers to that endometrial tissues grow in other parts of the uterus, which is mostly seen in women at childbearing age. Recent studies have found that the onset age of the disease tends to be younger. 

 
Although endometriosis is a non-neoplastic disease, it often affects the normal ovulation in women, so adequate attention should be paid to it. Therefore, what symptoms can help the female identify endometriosis? 
 
1. Dysmenorrhea
 
The most common symptom of endometriosis is progressive dysmenorrhea. Blocked blood discharge will become congestion, leading to stagnant movement of qi and blood, and then cause dysmenorrhea. The characteristic of progressive dysmenorrhea is that the patient will have abdominal pain a few days before each menstrual period, which will be aggravated during the period and fade away after the period. At the same time, dysmenorrhea can be accompanied by waist pain, shortness of breath, vomiting, frequent stools, cold hands and feet and other symptoms. 
 
2. Menstrual disorders
 
Patients with endometriosis may have symptoms like menstrual disorders, including increased menstrual volume, frequent menstruation and prolonged menstrual period. At present, it is believed that this is related to the implantation of endometrium in the pelvic cavity. The ectopic fallopian tubes may cause ovarian congestion in the process of periodic bleeding, which will lead to the imbalance of estrogen and progesterone, and induce menstrual disorders. 
 
3. Periodic irritative symptoms
 
Periodic irritative symptoms are associated with congestion and hemorrhagic irritation, which mainly include bladder irritation, rectal irritation and lower abdominal discomfort. Symptoms of bladder irritation include periodic hematuria, frequent urination and pain when urinating. Symptoms of rectal irritation include rectal distension and pain, tenesmus, increased defecation times and periodic hematochezia. Symptoms of lower abdominal discomfort are manifested as lower abdominal pain and lumbar acid, which can be aggravated with the menstrual cycle.
 
4. Infertility
 
Clinical investigations show that about 50% of unexplained infertility is caused by endometriosis. Patients with the disease have elevated levels of serum prolactin, which suppresses pituitary gonadotropin secretion and leads to ovulation disorders in the ovaries. At the same time, ovarian adhesion and blocked fallopian tubes caused by endometriosis will also lead to infertility. Infertility brings physiological and psychological harm to female patients at childbearing age, and will increases their mental pressure over time.
 
5. Painful sexual intercourse
 
About 30% of patients with endometriosis have pain during intercourse, which is one of the most valuable diagnostic criteria for endometriosis. Pain during sexual intercourse is mostly related to the tubercle of the posterior fossa in the uterus, the ligament of the fundus uteri and the posterior fornix of the vagina. Besides, the posterior wall of uterus and the rectum area may be affected during sexual intercourse, which can cause deep tenderness.
 
Through the simple introduction above, female patients can have a clear understand about the common clinical manifestations of endometriosis. When you have a few symptoms similar to these, you should take them seriously, and go to the hospital as far as possible. Laparoscopy and pelvic ultrasound can help you identify the existence of endometriosis. 
 
What's more, you should actively receive treatment after diagnosis, and keep a good mood for your recovery.
