These are the Symptoms of Endometriosis You Need to Know

By | source:Here May 20th, 2023

Endometriosis is a disease in which tissue that normally lines the uterus, called the endometrium, grows outside of it. While the exact cause of endometriosis isn’t known, it can be hereditary and is also thought to be related to hormones and immune system issues. The pain associated with endometriosis often begins around puberty and worsens throughout a woman’s life span. In this article we will discuss what causes endometriosis and how to treat it naturally so that you can live your best life!

Discomfort when urinating

If your bladder is affected by endometriosis, you might experience pain when urinating. This could be mild or severe and can range from sharp shooting pains to a burning sensation throughout the urethra. You may also notice that it takes longer for your urine to flow out of your body; this is called urinary frequency. You may also notice blood in your urine or mucus in addition to other symptoms like pain and bleeding during intercourse, constipation (less frequent bowel movements), diarrhea (more frequent bowel movements), fatigue or lack of energy due to anemia (low red blood cell count) caused by heavy menstrual bleeding over time–all common signs of endometriosis.

Painful Periods

Painful periods are the most common symptom of endometriosis. If you have painful periods, it’s important that you talk to your doctor about what treatment options might be right for you. Other symptoms include:

  • Painful intercourse
  • Painful bowel movements or urination

Painful intercourse

Painful intercourse is common in endometriosis. The pain can be felt in the lower abdomen or groin and is usually intense, but it does not last long. In fact, some women may feel no pain at all during sexual activity and only notice it after they have finished having sex. Pain may also be triggered by exercise, coughing or bowel movements.

Excessive Bleeding

If you have endometriosis, it could be causing bleeding that is more than normal. This can include:

  • Heavy periods. Your flow might be so heavy that it feels like the flow of a woman who has just given birth and hasn’t had time to heal yet.
  • Bleeding between periods (menorrhagia). This may happen every single day or just once in awhile–it all depends on how much blood your body produces in a given month.
  • Bleeding after sex (dyspareunia). If this happens regularly when having sex with a partner or during masturbation, consider getting tested for endometriosis because it’s possible that the disease could be causing your discomfort during intercourse due to inflammation of nearby tissues or irritation from scar tissue formation near sensitive areas such as the cervix and vagina walls.

Bloating or Nausea

Bloating is a common symptom of endometriosis and can be caused by a number of factors, including stress, eating too much, or even pregnancy. Nausea and other gastrointestinal issues are also common symptoms associated with bloating. If you experience these symptoms on a regular basis and think that they might be related to endometriosis (or another medical condition), make sure to talk with your doctor about what’s going on so that they can help figure out what’s causing them!



This is what endometriosis can do to your body. Endometriosis is a condition that affects the uterus, or womb. It occurs when tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows in other places. Endometriosis can affect different areas of your body, including:

  • The ovaries (the organs that produce eggs)
  • The fallopian tubes (the structures that carry eggs from an ovary to the uterus)
  • The outside of your pelvis (the area below your belly button and above your legs)

Endometriosis is a very real and painful disease, but it’s one that many women suffer from without even knowing it. If you think you may have endometriosis, talk to your doctor about getting tested for the condition. The sooner you can get diagnosed and treated for this disease the better!
