Suffering from chronic pain caused by Endometriosis? We have a team of some of the best gynaecologists at Definite Cure who can successfully diagnose and treat the condition to ensure that you are pain-free in no time.



The inner lining of your uterus called the endometrium is made up of a layer of tissues. Sometimes tissues similar to the endometrium are formed outside the uterine cavity, causing a condition called endometriosis.

There are four endometriosis stages:

  • Minima: The wounds or lesions are small or the endometrial implant on the ovaries are shallow.
  • Mild: The lesions are light and there are shallow implants on the pelvic lining and ovaries.
  • Moderate: The number of lesions is more and the implants are deeper.

    Severe: The implants in the ovaries and pelvic lining are deep. Lesions can extend to the bowels and fallopian tubes.


The common symptoms of endometriosis are:

  • Extreme pain during periods
  • Pain in your lower abdomen during or before your periods
  • Menstrual cramps that begin 1-2 weeks before your periods.
  • Heavy bleeding during periods.
  • Bleeding in between your periods.
  • Painful sexual intercourse.
  • Infertility
  • Uncomfortable bowel movements
  • Lower back around the time of your menstrual cycle.

Some women have no symptoms at all. This is why regular gynaecological exams are necessary so that an endometriosis test can be conducted in case of any abnormalities.

The exact endometriosis causes are still unknown. However, there are some possible factors leading to this condition:

  • Retrograde menstruation or flow of menstrual blood back into the pelvic cavity through the fallopian tubes.
  • Imbalance in the hormones.
  • Conversion of tissues in the abdomen into endometrial tissue. This is caused by cell growth in the abdomen from the embryonic cells.
  • Leaking of menstrual blood into the pelvic cavity because of surgical scars.
  • Transportation of endometrial cells through the lymphatic system and out of the uterus.
  • Inability of the immune system to destroy improper endometrial cells.

Older women, women who have not had children, and those with a family history of the condition are at a higher risk.


The treatment for endometriosis includes several procedures like:

  • Medication: Medicines are administered to control endometriosis pain. They are not 100% effective in curing the condition.
  • Hormone therapy: Supplemental hormones are provided to prevent the progression of the condition.
  • Hormonal contraceptives: Contraceptives like patches, birth control pills and vaginal rings are used to eliminate pain and prevent the build-up of endometrial tissues.
  • Laparoscopic surgery: This type of surgery, also called conservative surgery, is performed on women who still wish to conceive and have children. This surgery removes the endometrial growth without causing any damage to the reproductive organs. A small telescope called a laparoscope is inserted into your abdomen and used to look at the tissues. Laser technology is used to remove the tissue completely and prevent it from growing back.
  • Hysterectomy: This is the last resort when the condition is severe. The uterus is removed completely to prevent any complications. Hysterectomy can be abdominal or vaginal.

Your doctor will also suggest an endometriosis treatment diet to prevent the inflammation from increasing. This may include supplementation to help you get important nutrients like vitamins, omega-3 and minerals.
