Endometriosis Ovary Pain
Do u think I have endometriosis? Because i having lots of symptoms. Lower back pain, thighs legs back neck. Pain sex. Left ovary pain. Period pain.
I suggested to my doctor that I had enometriosis and she gave me birth control saying it would help but i'm still having burning ovary pain off and on?
Birth Control: Birth control pills can help supress your body's hormones, which can help with endometriosis. However, this would not necessarily control ovarian problem, such as a cyst. Usually these can be seen with an ultrasound. Also, keeping a diary of symptoms can be very helpful with determining patterns - this can help you doctor figure out if this is hormonal, or something else. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not certain: All standard authoritative textbooks in gynecologic surgery, including a comprehensive review in fertility & sterility in 2006, agree the ovaries, cul-de-sac, and pelvic peritoneum are the most common sites in that order. Although reasons aren't certain, if retrograde menstrual flow is a major cause of developing endometriosis this makes sense anatomically. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Severe Endo & Fert: You seem to be describing severe endometriosis. Further, you have only 1 ovary and only 50% of your eggs. Your age is important and fertility goes down with age. We have tests to check your fertility potential and you need other tests. See a fertility specialist for an assessment and options. Whatever we do now will work better than treatment in the future - don't delay. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was diagnosed with lazy ovary but i speculate i may have endometriosis. My older sister had it. Is it hereditary?
Absolutely: One can conceive perfectly normally with only one ovary. While endometriosis can make it more difficult to conceive, it rarely absolutely prevents conception. If you lost one ovary because of enmdometiosis, be sure to have regular follow ups and ultrasous of the other ovary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In reference to a laparoscopic hysterectomy for endometriosis issues, would it be better to keep one ovary, if possible?
Depends on age: Leaving one ovary means you will likely still have pain in 6-12 months post op, though you won't have periods and doing the hyst and one side debulks the endometriosis. Over age 40 I suggest both sides come out. Over 35 I tend to make all of mine aware of the recurrence of pain. Under 35 there is some benefit to keeping an ovary for prevention though 50% fail in 2 years and you get menopause. ...Read more

Beware: 21y female "had multiple test" & told "endometriosis", for which there are no test & which is a theoretical disorder. Beware of invasive laparoscopic procedures, which can induce intestinal adhesions & IBS symptoms oft characterized as "worse endometriosis". See Osteopath for evaluation of pelvic girdle disorder & investigate Joint Hypermobility Syndrome before agreeing to invasive surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Endometriomas: Yes. Cysts of endometriosis in the ovaries are called endometriomas, which may cause pain, infertility, both or neither.

Typically affects: The ovaries more dramatically (endometriomas are large blood filled, benign masses on the ovary that cause pain) however, the inflammation and scarring associated with endometriosis can cause tubal distortion that could lead to tubal dysfunction but the clinical relevance can only be answered best by understanding each patient's history. ...Read more
No: Ovarian endometriosis (called endometrioma) is associated with infertility but some women will not have a problem. We try not to remove the ovarian endometiomas these days because we may make the fertility potential worse. Medical therapy usually will not make them go away if they are over 1-2cm. Discuss your situation with your rei for options and stay positive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
