ABOUT ENDOMETRIOSIS

Endometriosis is a painful gynecological disorder that affects millions of women across the world and significantly hampers with their quality of life. As this condition occurs in women mostly in their prime, it can affect their ability to get pregnant, hence causing not just physical but mental trauma.

DIAGNOSIS

As research suggests, the percentage of women who come in with symptoms of endometriosis soon enough is abysmally low. In India, the stigma surrounding gynaecological disorders makes it even worse. For early detection, awareness of the disease is the key parameter. Moreover, endometriosis is often misdiagnosed as bowel disorders or ovarian cysts.

  • Pelvic examination - An experienced doctor will do a detailed assessment of the pain and other symptoms and conduct a thorough examination of the lower abdomen and pelvic region.
  • Scan - For accurate diagnosis, the doctors recommend an ultrasound scan of the pelvic area. In those with advanced disease, an MRI scan may be indicated in addition to an Xray IVU or Intravenous Urography. This is especially useful to plan the right surgical approach and involve other specialties as required during the surgery.
  • Laparoscopy - This is considered as the Gold standard in diagnosing Endometriosis. The laparoscopic procedure is done by the specialist, which involves making a key-hole incision and checking for the endometriotic growth with the help of a camera. The procedure also helps clear active lesions of endometriosis from the pelvis and abdomen.
