ENDOMETRIOSIS


What is endometriosis? 

The lining of the uterus, called the endometrium, is made up of cells that combine into endometrial tissue.

Endometriosis occurs when this endometrial tissue grows elsewhere in the body. The misplaced tissue implants itself onto the surface of the tissue or organ where it has been deposited and begins to grow and function.

This endometrial tissue looks and acts like tissue in the uterus and most often appears in places within the pelvis or the abdomen such as the:
~»bladder and ureters
~»bowel
~»fallopian tubes
~»ovaries
~»rectum
~»the space behind the uterus (cul-de-sac)
~»the outer surface of the uterus

What causes endometriosis?

The hormone estrogen (highest during childbearing years), is likely to contribute to endometriosis, for example. Other possible causes of endometriosis include:
1. Blood and lymph systems.
2. Ceolomic metaplasia - The areas lining the pelvic organs have certain cells that can grow into other forms of tissue such as endometrial cells.
3. Immune system problems - Autoimmune endometriosis occurs when the immune system fights off an infection and at the same time attacks healthy cells in the endometrium.
4. Retrograde menstruation - Menstrual flow that backs up into the fallopian tubes and abdominal cavity can deposit endometrial tissue to strange locations.
5. Surgery - Endometrial tissues may be directly transferred outside the uterus during surgeries such as episiotomy or Cesarean section.

Risk factors of endometriosis?

There are certain risk factors that make it more likely that a woman may develop endometriosis. For example, endometriosis occurs more often in women who have never had children. Women with a mother, sister, or daughter who have had endometriosis also are more likely to be diagnosed with the condition, as are about three quarters of women with chronic pelvic pain.
