Is It Possible For A 16 Year Old To Have Endometriosis
Yes: Endometriosis is entirely possible in young women. If the clionical history suggests it and the pt fails to have significant improvement while taking birth control pills, a laparoscopic exploration is needed. However, be sure to have an experienced gyn minimally invasive surgeon do the surgery. The first doctor "in" has the best chance of curing the problem, so choose your surgeon wisely. ...Read more
Yes!: If symptoms include severe cramping, pelvic piain, nausea, and incapacitation monthly. Please see a gyn md who may recommend laparoscopy to confirm the presence of endometriosis. The youngest patient thusfar that I have seen with the diagnosis was symptomatic at 14 and diagnosed and treated at 15 via laparoscopy. ...Read more
Is a PID and endometriosis the same? Can you get both diseases even if you are not having sex? Is it possible for a 16 year old girl to get either?
Not the same: PID stands for pelvic inflammatory disease and is caused by transmission of bacteria through unprotected sexual intercourse. Endometriosis means that tissue that is normally found inside the uterus is located outside the uterus in the fallopian tubes, the ovaries, or on the pelvic sidewall. PID and endometriosis have nothing to do with each other, but can occur in the same individual simultaneousl ...Read more
Endometriosis: Endometriosis is the endometrial tissue that normal lines the uterus growing somewhere else. It builds up and bleeds just like a period, but it is trapped in the pelvis or abdomen. This causes inflammation and pain and may lead to infertility. It is diagnosed best by surgery, but may be seen on ultrasound. It is treated with medication or surgery. You can see a reputable gynecologist for help. ...Read more

Millions of women have endometriosis, many of them teenagers. Sometimes it is hard to diagnose in a young woman, after a girl first gets her period it is assumed maybe her painful periods are cramps.

The only way to diagnose accurately is by having a laparoscopic procedure. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
What happens to a 27 year olds body (internally) at stage 3&4 of endometriosis had a chocolate cyst about a year ago & am about to have surgery 29th!
Varies: Certainly pregnancy should be the first goal. If you have not completed childbearing that should be the main focus. Having surgery on the ovary can lead to worsening infertility. Certainly you need a fertility specialist to coordinate any care since you need to be fully counseled on whether it is possible to have kids, how difficult it will or won't be, . And what surgery will help versus hurt you. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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?

Need more info: Do you still have your ovaries, are you taking any hormonal medications. Your breast problem may or many not be related to your hysterectomy. Please get to see your gynecologist ASAP as you need a complete breast exam and most likely a mammogram. All the pain you relate is not normal.. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

Would follow up with colon surgeon, regarding the risk for perforation and whether prophylactic removal is warranted. ...Read more

Irregular bleeding: Irregular menstrual bleeding is one of the most common issues Obgyn treat. If your CIN 3/endometriosis surgery was recent then prompt evaluation by your surgeon is warranted. If this bleeding is unrelated to surgery then schedule an Obgyn visit for a pelvic exam and sonogram. ...Read more

Would having a surgery to treat endometriosis reduce my chance of conceiving in the future? I am only 22 years old. Thank you
I am 38 years old, 3 abortions, overweight but working on losing it, with endometriosis what are my possibilities of conceiving again?
Both surgical and medical for endometriosis has advanced a good deal over the years and although a pregnancy at your age would be considered "high risk" by many OB-GYN such pregnancies have become quite common since many women postpone childbearing for career years!
Hope this is helpful and GOOD LUCK!

I'm 49 years old and I've been diagnosed with endometriosis I was put on a regimen of 3.75 lupron (leuprolide) injectable for 6 months I didn't have a period for 3?
21 years old stage 4 endometriosis, on Lupron (leuprolide) depot and still have pain. Have had 2 laparoscopic surgeries. What can I do now?
Unusual: Lupron (leuprolide) in combination with conservative surgery is usually helpful for symptomatic endometriosis. However there is another medication called danocrine that can be dosed in a variety of ways that may help as well. This was on the market well before Lupron (leuprolide) and may be worth a trial. Talk with your doctor and good luck. This is a frustrating disease. ...Read more

My daughter is 22 years old and on the Yaz pill for pain management as well as iron deficiency and not for contraceptive reasons. She would like to not use it anymore. We have taken her for a scan and she has no endometriosis.?
OK to stop: The decision to stop hormones given for menstrual pain and excessive flow is a personal decision and not unreasonable if anemia is controlled with iron supplement and diet. There is no need to taper medication; just finish a month cycle and then ones natural hormones will take over again. It may take a few months to get a regular schedule. ...Read more

The only thing in ur: History is the infertility. Do you have painful periods that went away when you were on birth controls pills. This is a common scenario. Pregnancy is protective of endometriosis. Gall stones and stomach ulcers are generally unrelated to endometriosis but I would discuss your infertility with your obgyn and it might be worth seeing an infertility specialist there in olathe. ...Read more
