Endometriosis is characterized not only by heavy and painful periods. Endometriosis has less noticeable signs as well; that’s why it can go undetected for a long time and is sometimes known as silent endometriosis. We have developed the ReceptivaDx test performed on an endometrial biopsy to determine whether you have an inflammatory condition commonly caused by endometriosis. Let’s discuss the common symptoms of endometriosis.
You may experience bladder problems, such as UTIs, or feel the urge to visit the toilet more during your periods. That could be a sign that endometriosis has adhered to your bladder.
You may also feel pain during urination, mostly during menstruation, because that is when endometrial cells are swollen. But it can also happen at any other time, which can signify endometriosis.
Bleeding Between Periods
If you experience abnormal bleeding during your period or bleeding between your periods, it can be a symptom of endometriosis. Another sign is if your periods last for more than seven days. Note that women who are approaching menopause or with polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, can experience abnormal bleeding.
Severe pain during ovulation that disrupts your everyday activities can also signify an endometrioma or endometriosis. Overall, if you experience abnormal bleeding or bleeding between your periods such that your flow soaks through the pads, get help.
Our primary focus is on endometriosis, and we provide a test for all stages of endometriosis. We are a licensed provider for BCL6 analysis on endometrial tissue to determine if a patient likely has endometriosis.
Endometriosis does not result in infertility in every case. But the endometrial tissue can lead to scarring around the fallopian tubes and ovaries, causing damage that can cause infertility. Natural conception may still be possible in most cases of endometriosis. If you have tried different fertility treatments without success, the ReceptivaDx test may identify the cause of your unexplained infertility. The test may be the answer you’re looking for.
Bloating is an uncommon syndrome in people with endometriosis and is usually referred to as “endo belly.” The unpleasant swelling occurs during your periods when you suffer from endometriosis. But it is not the only gastrointestinal symptom of the condition.
Endometriosis is mainly misdiagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome or IBS because both conditions have similar symptoms. Endometriosis can cause bouts of vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, and constipation during your periods.
We are ready to help you if you’re experiencing abnormal bowel habits or other painful bowel movements. ReceptivDx can be the test to provide the link to an endometriosis diagnosis and treatment.
