Endometriosis is
a condition where tissue, similar to the
lining in your uterus, grows in other
areas of your body. If you are a woman,
your reproductive system includes the vagina, uterus,
fallopian tubes, and ovaries. During a normal
menstrual cycle, you’re ovaries make chemicals
called hormones, which signal the lining of
your uterus to thicken. The lining, called
the endometrium, builds up to prepare to
receive a fertilized egg. If the egg isn’t
fertilized, the uterus sheds the lining
through your vagina. This monthly bleeding is
called your menstrual period. If you have endometriosis,
the lining type tissue grows outside your uterus for
reasons that aren’t clear. The misplaced tissue
response to the hormones just like it would if it
were inside your uterus. The tissue continues
to thicken, then sheds, and bleeds with
every menstrual cycle. However, the blood
and tissue that are shed outside the uterus
have no way to leave your body. The trapped endometrial flow can
irritate the surrounding area causing inflammation and pain. Bands of scar tissue,
called adhesions, may form, sticking
one organ to another or causing your
fallopian tubes to close. This can affect your
fertility, which is the ability to
become pregnant. Endometriosis can form
endometriomas, also known as chocolate cysts. These cysts are fluid
filled sacs on your ovaries that can affect fertility. Endometriosis may also
result in abnormal bleeding. The most common sites
for endometriosis are the ovaries,
fallopian tubes, the outside of your uterus,
the supporting structures around your uterus, and
the lining of your pelvis, called the peritoneum. Other sites include
your bladder, rectum, and intestines. If you have endometriosis,
you may have one or more of these symptoms,
chronic usually worsening central pelvic pain, pain before
or during your period, pain during sex felt deep
within your pelvis, painful urination
during your period, painful bowel movements
during your period, abnormal bleeding, diarrhea,
constipation, or nausea, and difficulty getting
pregnant called infertility. Your doctor may recommend
treatment options from the following categories,
pain management medications, such as aspirin,
acetaminophen, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs,
also known as nsaids, provide relief from pain. Hormone therapy, such
as birth control pills, can prevent monthly endometrial
buildup and bleeding. You may need a
surgical procedure to treat the tissue
causing pain or bleeding. Examples of such procedures
include, removal or destruction of endometrial issue, removal
of adhesions and scar tissue, removal or drainage of
cysts, removal or destruction of nerve fibers that transmit
pain, removal of your uterus, called a hysterectomy, or
removal of your ovaries, called an oophorectomy.

  1. can someone tells me what will happen if my pre cum will mix up with my period
    please I'm so curious

  2. Even for normal girls/women period cramps are highly unbearable. Those without such cramps are very lucky. That being said, I can only imagine the pain in case women with endometriosis. It definitely must have been many fold.

  3. I just want the pain to stop. Every. Damn. Month. Tears do nothing. Painkillers do nothing. Heating pads do nothing. Laying in different positions does nothing. The only thing that helps is support from my sister who goes through the same thing.

  4. I have really bad period cramps only on the first day of my period. The rest of the days are bearable. The pain is so bad that I can’t stomach anything at all including water. I end up puking it up after 30 seconds. And I basically become very delirious and sweat a lot and the pain is very bad and I can’t poop at all. 😂 basically hell. I don’t know what it is, but Idk if I want to get it checked it out not. But does anybody go through this too? I basically have pregnancy symptoms.

  5. i’m still 18 years old but I have been diagnosed with endometriosis last month..prior to that, ive had bad cramps and my period would last for 9 days with heavy flow..its so bad 🙁

  15. I have really bad pain while menstruating. The thing was I ended up menstruating non stop for a month. So I came across a doctor that recommended contraceptive pills. Since then I am a lot better. But I didn't dare to do the surgery to check for endometriosis.

  16. I don't care if I hate you so much that if you were on fire I'd drink some water and watch. If you're on your period, I'll give you tampons and painkillers and help you.

    Ron weesly : sane thing

    My older cousin told me this joke.

    Like if you laughed. LIKE IT ANYWAY

  18. I get REALLY BAD PAIN, but it only lasts for an hour/two hours on the first day. There have been times I’ve vomited. But there are months that I didn’t get pain at all! Does that mean I don’t have it? Coz I do stress/have irregular sleeping patterns/poor diet! Someone help

  19. I feel like crying so bad. My period cramps hurt so bad!!! I keep vomiting every 6 seconds and it hurts my throat. I started my period at 9 and I thought I would get used to it but it’s so fucking painful. I had to miss school today because I vomited as soon as I woke up

  20. Reading these comments about severe cramps make me feel thankful that I'm not alone in this. GIRLS, WE CAN BEAT THIS HORRIBLE PAIN also fun fact : girls often get 450 days of periods until they die! Another fun fact : studies show that periods cramp are just as painful as heart attacks so I never wanna hear another man call a women weak!

  21. Watching this whilst I’m on my period.. sometimes you pray to the lord and thank him for you to be on your period.. 😉 but damn this pain is getting to me 😡 every damn month!!!
