1. Endometriosis And Infertility
The National endometriosis Society exists to aid women who suffer from the disease diagnosed as endometriosis. Founded in 1981 the National endometriosis Society is a UK charity devoted exclusively to this disease.
Endometriosis Endometriosis, a cause of female infertility, is a condition in which endometrial tissue, the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus, grows outside the uterus and attaches to other organs in the abdominal cavity such as the ovaries and fallopian tubes. Endometriosis is a progressive disease that tends to get worse over time and can reoccur after treatment. Symptoms include painful menstrual periods, abnormal menstrual bleeding and pain during or after sexual intercourse. The endometrial tissue outside your uterus responds to your menstrual cycle hormones the same way the tissue inside your uterus responds - it swells and thickens, then sheds to mark the beginning of the next cycle. The blood that is shed from the endometrial tissue in your abdominal cavity has no place to go, resulting in pools of blood causing an inflammation that forms scar tissue. The scar tissue can block the fallopian tubes or interfere with ovulation. Another result of endometriosis is the formation of ovarian cysts called endometrioma that may also interfere with ovulation.

Endometriosis is a common gynecological disease that occurs when cells from the womb are found outside the womb. The most common symptom of endometriosis is pain. Usually it begins with menstruation, or it may build up a few days before your period. Other symptoms include: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, pain with intercourse or bowel movements and for some, infertility. Diagnosis is currently based on surgical visualisation by laparoscopy. It involves placement of a fiber optic (lighted) scope into the abdomen. This is then followed by placement of small additional ports in the lower abdomen to allow placement of instruments for evaluation and treatment of endometriosis.

    The Center for Endometriosis Care was founded to diagnose, treat, and educate women with endometriosis. Free literature and a newsletter are available.
    Endometriosis is a troubling disease that affects millions of women worldwide. It is responsible for hundreds of thousands of missed work hours, pain ranging from mild to crippling, and, for some women, infertility.
    The Center for Endometriosis Care (CEC) is formed around four principles:
    • Recognizing subtle disease in all its manifestations. Removing all endometriosis while preserving a woman's organs. Performing pathological examination on all excised tissue. Treating women with respect as partners in health care.

    Historically, medical textbooks teach that endometriosis looks like black powder burns. However, many studies have shown that black implants are not even the most common. Clear, white, red, yellow, blue and gray implants can also occur. A surgeon who looks only for black spots can miss significant disease. The CEC medical staff has many years and thousands of cases of experience in disease recognition. At the Center for Endometriosis Care, we consider any abnormal area of the peritoneum to be endometriosis until proven otherwise by pathology.
    Once endometriosis is recognized, it is removed via laparoscopic excision (LAPEX). Although this is a meticulous, highly detailed operation, most women are treated on an out-patient basis.

    What is Endometriosis? End ometriosis is a painful, chronic disease that affects 5 1/2 million women and girls in the USA and Canada, and millions more worldwide. It occurs when tissue like that which lines the uterus (tissue called the endometrium) is found outside the uterus usually in the abdomen on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and ligaments that support the uterus; the area between the vagina and rectum; the outer surface of the uterus; and the lining of the pelvic cavity. Other sites for these endometrial growths may include the bladder, bowel, vagina, cervix, vulva, and in abdominal surgical scars. Less commonly they are found in the lung, arm, thigh, and other locations. This misplaced tissue develops into growths or lesions which respond to the menstrual cycle in the same way that the tissue of the uterine lining does: each month the tissue builds up, breaks down, and sheds. Menstrual blood flows from the uterus and out of the body through the vagina, but the blood and tissue shed from endometrial growths has no way of leaving the body. This results in internal bleeding, breakdown of the blood and tissue from the lesions, and inflammation and can cause pain, infertility, scar tissue formation, adhesions, and bowel problems. What are the Symptoms of Endometriosis?

The keys to successfully battling this painful disease include early diagnosis, effective treatment with an Endometriosis specialist not an OB-GYN generalist), the support of those who understand, keeping abreast of the latest information on the disease, and a positive outlook.
    Endometriosis is NOT cancer, but recent studies show increased risks of certain cancers in those with Endometriosis, as well as malignant changes in Endometriotic implants.
