Can endometriosis cause an occasional bad odor down there? No STD but have endo. Us that normal? All random as to when it flares up.

Can endometriosis cause an occasional bad odor down there? No STD but have endo. Us that normal? All random as to when it flares up.

Something else: The most common symptoms of endometriosis are painful menses, pain during sex, pelvic pain, or infertility. There are other possible symptoms, such as constipation or diarrhea. I would consider other possibilities for your vaginal odor, such as bacterial vaginosis (bv). With bv, the odor may be worse after sex and during menses.

Can endometriosis w/ weak pelvic floor cause smell from rectum to be emitted when uterus contract if scar tissues are attached to rectum?

Can endometriosis w/ weak pelvic floor cause smell from rectum to be emitted when uterus contract if scar tissues are attached to rectum?

Not likely: Severe endometriosis involving the colon or rectum will usually cause obstructive symptoms before any bleeding due to endometriosis occurs. Smell is more likely a function of your diet or if you have some type of infection of gyn or rectal origin.

I have a something in my uterus about 6.4cm doctor said it could be adenomysis or endometriosis. Can this cause discharge before menstruation? No smell

Uterine defect: A hallmark of endometriosis or adenomyosis (endometriosis of the uterus) is bleeding prior to true menses. The best way to diagnosis this condition is an MRI. If you have this condition and don't wish to conceive at the present I suggest treating with medication such an Lupron (leuprolide).

Finding small amounts of sediment in urine, no blood/odor. Dipped myself which shows mod wbc. Horrible lower back pain (endometriosis). Any thoughts?

Finding small amounts of sediment in urine, no blood/odor. Dipped myself which shows mod wbc. Horrible lower back pain (endometriosis). Any thoughts?

Could be UTI: I think it definitely could be a urinary tract infection but that should be checked out. Urinary sediment is certainly not normal which could signal other malfunctions going on and not just an infectious process. I recommend getting a urine sample looked at and possibly cultured, depending on what your doctor would like. Would get the sediment looked at microscopically.

How will endometriosis affect other parts of my body?

How will endometriosis affect other parts of my body?

Endometriosis: Endometriosis usually causes chronic pelvic pain. It is due to an increase in production of inflammatory substances which may lead to scarring of the pelvic organs, thereby increasing your chances of infertility or an ectopic pregnancy. These inflamatory substances are also known to cause irregular menstruation and may occasionally prevent ovulation.

Could my labor cause endometriosis?

No: Endmoetriosis usually becomes dormant during pregnancy. There are some case reports of endometriosis occuring outside the pelvic cavity but theese are rare. Labor and endometriosis don't usually go together, but your doctor may be able to better answer after further questioning.

Does endometriosis cause inovulation?

Yes, it can: Endometriosis can and does interfere with ovulation as well as fallopian tube motility (the ability to conduct the fertilized egg to the uterus). Researchers are not exactly sure why, whether the endometriosis implants secrete a substance that does that or not, but 40% of all infertility patients suffer from endometriosis.

Can clomaphene cause problems when I have endometriosis? Did clomaphene work or make endometriosis worse?

Can clomaphene cause problems when I have endometriosis? Did clomaphene work or make endometriosis worse?

Talk to your doctor: Clomiphene alters hormonal balances in the body, especially of estrogen. This is how it works as an infertility drug. Endometriosis can be worsened by the presence of high levels of estrogens. Clomiphene use is relatively contraindicated in women with endometriosis. But again, you should talk to your doctor since only they know why you may still need to take the drug despite your condition.

How can endometriosis cause shoulder pain?

Endometriosis: You may have some pain from endometriosis, especially at or near the time of your menstrual cycle. This results as the fluid from the endometriosis may cause inflammation of the area near the diaphragm on the right. Sometimes, there is an implant directly on the diaphragm that may worsen over time as well. The only way to tell would be at the time of surgery.

Can you tell me how endometriosis cause infertility?

Endometriosis: Over time endometrial tissue may grow & spread into the ovaries & may occlude the fallopian tubes. Blood in ovaries may form into cysts. The endometrial tissue responds to hormones that cause normal menstrual bleeding. Repeated inflammation can lead to formation of scar tissues. These changes can lead to fertility problems.

What kind of pains during intercourse are caused by endometriosis?

What kind of pains during intercourse are caused by endometriosis?

Varies: Everyone experiences pain differently. For some it may feel like cramping, others sharp or stabbing pains and yet others may feel a burning sensation. You can reduce this by teaching your partner to avoid deep penetration. The outer third of the penis and vagina are the most sensitive, so deep insertion isn't needed and for you is painful.

Is it possible for endometriosis to cause pain between your periods?

Hard to say: Patients with endometriosis can have pain between periods. As one approaches menopause endometriosis becomes less potent due to declining estrogen levels associated with menopause. It could be ovulation pain. Ultimately, I would speak to your obgyn about a work up.
