Endometriosis In Older Women
Hi, I'm a 37 year old women with a serious condition of endometriosis. Is anavar a helpful steroid to use like a option?
Not likely.: Anavar is an anabolic steroid that is used by body builders to build muscle mass. Typically endometriosis is effected by the sex hormones like estrogen and progesterone. Unless taking the anavar effected your level of sex hormones then it would not significantly effect endometriosis. Hope this helps.
Two periods a month. Is this normal. I am a 42 year old female. Tubes have been tied for 22 yrs. I also have endometriosis.
What is Normal: When it comes to gynecology the word normal is designed to measure your experience with your history, not others. If this is not normal for you then it is abnormal.
Am 39 yrs old, female, never had kids. Would a hysterectomy help with pain from endometriosis and interstitial cystitis?
Pelvic pain can: Be difficult to diagnose and treat. Hysterectomy might or might not help. Get an opinion from both gyn and urologist, preferably at a medical center.
For a 23 year old female with endometriosis what would be the cause of pelvic pain when she uses tampons of any size during her period.
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.
I am a 17 year old female I suffer from adenomyosis, endometriosis a for about 5 years pain getting worse try birth control could I get a hysterectomy?
I am 21 years old, female, and taking birth control pills (Qlaira) for my endometriosis. Can I take glutathione capsules together with my pills?
I am a 38 year old female. I have PCOS, endometriosis, and small fibroids 3 to be exact. I usually have weird periods but I've had a period now since June 19th and I go thru a box of 16 pads in 2 days. I know this is not normal. I called my GYN but s?
Not normal: Congratulations on your assessment that the bleeding since june19th isn't normal. Your question was cut off, but a GYN MD visit is imperative to be tested for anemia and the source of the bleeding. (probably the fibroids).
34 year-old woman continues to suffer gynecologic pains, especially with bodily movement, after da Vinci surgery for fibroids and endometriosis.....?
Ovarian conservation: Unfortunately this is fairly common; my best guess is it's related to recurrent or ongoing endometriosis. There are many (good) reasons for preserving ovaries when having a hysterectomy, but good data show that if ovaries are conserved women are 6 times more likely (62% vs. 10%) to have recurring symptoms, and 8 times more likely to need additional surgery (31% vs. 4%) than those who have them removed. Adhesive disease is certainly another possibility.See 14 more doctor answers
28 year-old woman was found during laparoscopy for endometriosis to have segmental areas of colon missing its musculature, and wonders about pro.....?
Segmental lack muscl: Segmental absence of colonic musculature is congenital and is usually diagnosed in childhood. It can be associated with constipation and also spontaneous perforation which is when it is diagnosed. Would follow up with colon surgeon, regarding the risk for perforation and whether prophylactic removal is warranted.See 9 more doctor answers
Fairly common: Although experts may disagree over small differences, good ballpark figures for endometriosis are as follows: about 10-15% of women in the general population, between 40-60% of women with normal male partners who seek help for infertility, and as high as 80-90% who meet the above and have chronic pelvic pain.See 1 more doctor answer
Endometriosis: Endometriosis is a bening disease defined by the presence of endometrial glands (lining of inside the uterus) outside the uterus and its associated with pelvic pain, painful menstruation and infertility. The disease tends to progress and recurrs. Any female with menstruation can develop endometriosis.
Depends: On if you want fertilty preservation or not, the doctor who diagnosed your endometriosis should be able to dsicuss all options with you, most likely u will needs some type of surgery, now it can be done through the robot so if your gyn does not do that and u need surg your gyn should refer you to someone who does, also you can use depo-lupron, but that is not long term, good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
Mostly women over 30: Endometriosis is usually found in women over 30. It is defined as endometrial glands outside of the uterus (ovaries are the most common site) and is thought to be caused by prolonged retrograde menstruation. It is the most common cause of female infertility and risk factors include nulliparity (no history of childbirth), family history, and low bmi.See 1 more doctor answer
Unknown: The degree of endometriosis does not always correlate with the severity of pain. Many women with endometriosis have no symptoms.
Seek an expert: You need to see a physician truly expert in endometriosis, which is not synonymous with "go see your OB/GYN". The reality is that the majority of 4 year residency trained OB/GYNs do not have extensive endometriosis experience, and usually do not do effective surgery for the disease.
