Endometriosis | Columbus GA
If you have cramping or pelvic pain during your period that is so severe it affects your normal activities, you may have a common condition called endometriosis. It is estimated that up to 20 percent of American women of childbearing age suffer from endometriosis.
Endometriosis occurs when the tissue that lines a woman’s uterus grows outside the uterus – on the ovaries, fallopian tubes and/or the pelvic lining. Since this out-of-place uterine tissue bleeds with each period, the blood cannot exit and becomes trapped inside the body – causing intense pain.
The good news is that you do not have to suffer with endometrial pain during your periods. OBGYN Specialists of Columbus offers several highly effective, non-invasive and minimally-invasive procedures that can successfully treat endometriosis. But endometriosis should never be ignored. Not only is it painful, but it will typically worsen over time as the misplaced tissue continues to grow. Additionally, if left untreated, scar tissue or adhesions may develop that can worsen pain and cause infertility.
