This health tool will help you make wise health decisions or take action regarding endometriosis.
Although there is no cure for endometriosis, treatment can improve pain and infertility. Treatment depends on how severe your symptoms are and whether you have future pregnancy plans.
Endometriosis cannot be prevented. This is in part because the cause is poorly understood. However, long - term use of birth control pills may prevent endometriosis from becoming worse.
What is endometriosis? Endometriosis is a problem many women have during their childbearing years. It means that a type of tissue that lines your uterus is also growing outside your uterus.
Although surgery does not cure endometriosis, it does offer short - term results for most women and long - term relief for a few.
For endometriosis, call a health professional immediately if you develop sudden, severe pelvic pain.
Factors that increase your risk of developing endometriosis include age and family history of endometriosis.
Learn about exams and tests used to diagnose endometrial cancer.
