Can Endometriosis Cause Occasional Symptoms Of A Uti
Yes: Endometriosis is frequently associated with interstitial cystitis. This is where you feel like you have a UTI but there are no bacteria. In many patients the endo causes so many impulses along the pelvic nerves that the signals start going backwards and cause neurogenic inflammation that triggers the bladder pain and sensitivity. All causes of pelvic pain need to be identified for adequate relief. ...Read more

Is endometriosis a cause of painful sex? I always have some pain with intercourse and have read that is one of the symptoms of endometriosis. How do I know if I have endometriosis? .

I have history of endometriosis w/ full spectrum of ov ca symptoms on daily basis in past 8mos. All they can find is 1.5cm adexal mass, which md doesn't think is cause of my sx. Can 1.5cm cyst be so symptomatic?
Problematic: So yes women with endo have a higher lifetime risk of ovarian cancer. The risk os still small. You should always be on something to suppress the endo unless trying to get pregnant. Endo, scar tissue, or the mass could cause symptoms. But only surgery can tell you what is going on now. And surgery is not enough. Longstanding medical therapy is also needed. ...Read more

I didn't have any symptom of endometriosis before I got pregnant then why I have tilted uterus what doc should do is it normal or will cause miscarriag?
No miscarriage: Having a tilt to one's uterus (forward, backward or midline) doesn't affect infertility or miscarriage at all. Sometimes women with retroverted uteri (tilted back), also have endometriosis. Endometriosis can cause infertility but does not increase risk for miscarriage. There's nothing to "do" about a tilted uterus, it's a normal variation. Best of luck and thank you for using healthtap! ...Read more
