Genetics: We are now learning that genes have a significant role in determining who gets endo, and how severe it is. Somewhere between 10-20% of women with endo have bowel involvement. Rectal and sigmoid locations are the most frequent sites for bowel endo, and it causes pain with bms all month long. You usually can't see endo on colonoscopy so many women arent diagnosed by GI docs to whom they're referred.

Sometimes: Femara (letrozole) is an aromatase inhibitor that prevents endo from producing its own estrogen. It will only work for endo in women who have been castrated. Norethindrone is a synthetic progestin that suppresses endo. Both can give some pain relief, and Norethindrone usually has much fewer side effects. The ais cause severe menopausal symptoms and most young women can't tolerate them.

It's complicated.: Endo can cause spasm in the pelvic floor muscles, and it can also live on some of the pelvic nerves. Generally, once the endo is excised the muscles and nerves go back to normal. Rarely, there is permanent injury and irritation of either the nerves or muscles, and this is where nerve blocks are most effective. Pudendal neuralgia is an overlooked cause of pelvic pain that will respond to blocks.
