Can Endometriosis Pain Occur Without Uterus
Hi, I'm 48 yo, have endometriosis, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, pre-menopausal. CA 125 was around 200's then 159 the last one was 210 any concerns?
Likely, no: CA 125 is not recommended as a screening tool for ovarian cancer when used in risk-based stratification. Meaning, assuming that your mom or sister didn't get diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Normal for women with endometriosis to have elevated CA-125. It sounds like your doctor has done Ultrasound to evaluate ovaries as well. Your MD knows your history and risk, likely this CA-125 level is normal ...Read more
Risk versus benefit: It is possible, however the risk benefit analysis may be in favor of non operative therapy. Endometriosis is misplaced uterine lining. It has escaped your uterus and takes up residence on other organs. Your surgeon is the best doc to discuss your risk. It is not simple to remove these pesky implants. ...Read more

Diagnosed with 2 endometria... One 7mm and the other 12mm. She said I have an enlarged uterus. Does this mean I have endometriosis?
Probably not: If you were told you had 2 "endometriomas", you need to know that a pelvic sonogram may be "suggestive" of endometrial/endometriotic cysts but unfortunately may not be an accurate diagnosis. 2 small hemorrhagic cysts may resemble 2 endometriomas and will often resolve spontaneously. Not endometriosis. If your "enlarge uterus" has 2 "endometrias", you have a congenital anomaly, not endometriosis. ...Read more
Is a uterus size 9x4x5cm witj a hemging cyst size18x9x13 normal with endomertiom of 6mm thicnkness in a 32 year old woman. That has endometriosis ?
Depends: If you mean 18mmX9mmX13mm then yes, but if the measurement was cm (centimeters) then that's very large and needs to be addressed. A hemorrhagic corpus luteum (cyst that forms after ovulation) is normal and 18 mm (millimeters) in size is quite normal. Your endometrial thickness is fine as is your uterine size. ...Read more
I had blocked tubes near the uterus and I was told it was due to endometriosis. How often does this happen?
Possible: Definitive surgical treatment of endometriosis includes removing the ovaries and tubes in addition to the uterus. The cure rate is about 95% with that surgery.

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
I have endometriosis. I have gone through 4 IVF cycles. I want to get the fifth done but i've heard that uterus cancer can be triggered because of endometriosis. I am afraid. What should I do?
No reason: I am not aware of anything linking ivf to uterine cancer. However, women with endometriosis have a 2x risk lifetime of ovarian cancer. So i don't think you need to worry about that. But it is unusual to not be pregnant after 4 cycles of ivf and the prognosis at this point would be significantly lower. ...Read more
Not exactly: Although endometriosis tissue has the same components as the endometrium the behavior is different. Inside the uterus, the lining sheds itself monthly in an organized way. Endometriosis on the contrary, results in a festering inflammation that can cause pain, infertility and adhesions. ...Read more
On pelvic examination, I had a retroplaced uterus and my doctor said I had endometriosis. How common is this?
A retroplaced uterus: Is not uncommon, like being left handed. It is possible that on exam your physician felt nodules on the ligaments that support your uterus that could be endometriotic implants. A history of painful periods that resolved while on birth control pills may have also led your doctor to believe this. A retroplaced uterus doesn't = endometriosis though some with endo might have a retoplaced uterus. ...Read more
