Endometriosis is a common but poorly understood disease. It can affect women of any socioeconomic class, age, or race. The cause of endometriosis remains a medical mystery. There are several theories about the cause of this disease, but no definitive diagnosis has yet been found by medical researchers. Symptoms of endometriosis vary greatly from person to person. Although endometriosis itself is mild, symptoms can be severe. Mild symptoms may be present or undetectable, and endometriosis may be very advanced.


Endometriosis symptoms are often painful and the disease itself is difficult to diagnose. The symptoms themselves often lead to a preliminary diagnosis, but the only way to obtain a definitive diagnosis is to physically observe endometrial lesions in the abdominal cavity.  If you have Endometriosis symptoms, you should consult the best gynecologist for Best endometriosis treatment in Chennai!


Endometriosis is a painful condition that can affect proper daily functioning. In endometriosis, endometrial-like tissue grows in other parts of the body, such as the abdomen and pelvis.  Endometriosis can cause heavy, painful menstrual bleeding and fertility problems. The endometrium is the lining of the uterus that is a muscular hollow organ in the female pelvis. 


Endometriosis is a chronic estrogen-dependent chronic disease characterized by the ectopic implantation of functional tissues (endometrial glands and stroma) lining the uterus outside the uterine cavity.  The tissue is not cancerous, but it can cause scarring and adhesions. It can block the fallopian tubes, and trapped blood can form cysts. Tissues may fuse, causing changes in the reproductive organs.

Treatment for Endometriosis

Diagnosis of endometriosis begins with symptoms. Heavy painful menstrual periods should be evaluated by a doctor. A pelvic examination can be done by a family doctor or an obstetrician-gynecologist. For more information, an ultrasound can be ordered and then a pelvic image or MRI performed on the patient to further map the endometriosis. 


Laparoscopic surgery can be suggested. During this procedure, a biopsy or small sample of tissue is taken. A biopsy is sent to a laboratory to confirm the diagnosis. A doctor can help create a treatment plan for endometriosis based on several factors, including: 

  • The severity of the endometriosis
  • Plans for the future pregnancies
  • Patient age
  • Severity of the symptoms such as pain
