What Is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a serious condition that impacts more than five million women in the United States. It can affect nearly every aspect of a woman’s life. Although the exact cause of the disorder isn’t known, its effects are noticeable for most women. The disorder occurs when endometrial cells, similar to those lining the uterus, are located outside the uterus. Many women experience pain that feels like blisters inside the pelvis. Symptoms are often unpredictable but include:

  • Lower Abdomen or Pelvic Pain
  • Heavy or Painful Periods
  • Bleeding between Periods
  • Discomfort When Using the Toilet
  • Pain During or after Sex
  • Persistent Exhaustion & Tiredness
  • Difficulty Getting Pregnant

Endometrial Ablation Doctor for Abnormal Bleeding

When medicine and hormonal treatments are not effective at controlling your abnormal bleeding and pain, our endometrial ablation specialists can help. Endometrial ablation removes the endometrial tissues to treat abnormal bleeding. After surgery and healing, you will have reduction in blood flow during menstruation. Some women stop having periods completely. The surgery should not be performed if you plan to get pregnant in the future.

Are you discouraged because you’re unable to find effective endometriosis treatment? Many women discover that their family physician is not fully equipped to help them with their suffering. If you have pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, painful intercourse, infertility, and other symptoms, visit BHS Physicians Network for diagnosis and treatment.
