The term endometriosis is used to describe scattered endometrium islands, which usually occur in the pelvis minor between the uterus and the rectum, on the fallopian tubes or the bladder and the pelvic wall.
Since these hormone-dependent mucosal islands follow cyclical changes in the same direction as the correct endometrium, women with endometriosis often suffer severe pain during menstruation (dysmenorrhoea) and develop adhesions around the bleeding. This in turn can cause adhesion of the fallopian tubes and lead to infertility. If you describe these types of symptoms, we can confirm the diagnosis by performing adequate examinations and plan the most gentle of therapies using medication and a minimally invasive intervention if necessary.
Endometriosis– if detected early – can be treated successfully before adhesions and fertility restrictions develop.
