Endometriosis

Private Endometriosis Specialist in London

Endometriosis is a condition that requires proper treatment. Help is available from our endometriosis specialist, experienced in comprehensive endometriosis treatment and surgery available at our Gynaecology Clinic in London.

Endometriosis is a medical condition that occurs if there is displacement of the endometrium outside the uterus. Due to this displacement, the endometrium, which is associated with menstrual cycle, would breakdown, thicken and then bleed but may get trapped as there is no easy escape from the body. When endometriosis involves ovaries, cysts known as endometriomas may form. The surrounding tissues may get irritated and develop scar tissue and adhesions in due course, causing organs and pelvic tissues to stick to each other.

Endometriosis may be a reason for severe pain during the menstrual period and one might experience fertility problems.

Usually, endometriosis affects one in every 10 women of childbearing age. It is often diagnosed when women are in the age group of 30 to 40 years.

Causes

The exact course of endometriosis is not certain, but possible explanations include:

  • Retrograde menstruation: there’s a back flow of menstrual blood into the pelvic cavity rather than out of the body.
  • Transformation of peritoneal cells: cells that line the inner abdomen are transformed into endometrial cells
  • Embryonic cell transformation into endometrial cell implants during puberty.

With endometriosis, there exists certain risks, including: infertility, early menstruation, menopause at an older age, heavy menstrual periods, and low body mass index, amongst others.
