Symptoms of Endometriosis:
Endometriosis hurts depends on where the implants are growing. You may have pain in your lower belly, your rectum or vagina, or your lower back. You may have pain only before and during your periods or all the time. Some women have more pain during sex, when they have a bowel movement, or when their ovaries release an egg (ovulation). Some women have heavy periods, spotting or bleeding between periods, bleeding after sex, or blood in their urine or stool.
Trouble getting pregnant;This is the only symptom some women have.Endometriosis varies from woman to woman. Some women don't know that they have it until they go to see a doctor because they can't get pregnant or have a procedure for another problem. Some have mild cramping that they think is normal for them. In other women, the pain and bleeding are so bad that they aren't able to work.
Some women with endometriosis don't have symptoms. Other women have symptoms that range from mild to severe.Symptoms may include:
- Pelvic pain
- Severe menstrual cramps.
- Low backache 1 or 2 days before the start of the menstrual period (or earlier)
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Rectal pain
- Pain during bowel movements
- Abnormal bleeding
- Blood in the urine or stool
- Some vaginal bleeding before the start of the menstrual period
- Vaginal bleeding after sex
Symptoms are often most severe just before and during your menstrual period. They get better as your period is ending. Some women, especially teens, have pain all the time. Several other conditions can cause symptoms that are similar to endometriosis. These conditions include painful periods, adenomyosis, and uterine fibroids.
