Your Midtown Manhattan gynecologist Dr. Fernando Mariz may find endometrial tissues in your vagina, cervix or vulva. But they can also appear completely outside your reproductive system, in places such as your intestines, rectum, or bladder. They can even be found, although rarely, in abdominal surgery scars. The endometrial tissue — regardless of its location and the fact that the tissue has no way to exit your body — continues its normal cycle of thickening, breaking down, and bleeding. Signs and symptoms of endometriosis should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by a physician for an accurate diagnosis, a treatment plan can well as follow up.
At Manhattan Women’s Health & Wellness we offer comprehensive Obstetrics & Gynecology care in NYC for women of all ages. We provide a full range of gynecology services, from annual check-ups and routine pap smears to endometriosis treatment. Our state of the art facility equipped with the latest equipment.
The initial signs of endometriosis are abnormally painful menstrual cramps that get worse over time. Endometriosis pain also can occur before you get your period or while having sex. However, while pain is the best-known symptom of endometriosis, you may not always recognize it. Instead, other symptoms may present, such as:
Fatigue Urination that’s painful during your menstrual cycle Bowel movements that are painful only during your period Other gastrointestinal issues, such as diarrhea, constipation, bloating, or nausea, especially during your period Heavy or excessive bleeding during your period, as well as breakthrough bleeding from your uterus in between your menstrual cycles
Because so many different diagnoses may include pelvic pain as a symptom, endometriosis can be hard to differentiate initially from diagnoses such as pelvic inflammatory disease, ovarian cysts or irritable bowel syndrome.
