Is it possible for a 16 year old to have endometriosis?

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.

Could it be possible for a 16 year old to have endometriosis?

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.

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?

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

I am 16 and I am worried I have endometriosis. Please help me!?

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.

Is it possible for a 13 year old to already have endometriosis?

Possible: 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. But when there is long standing pain around the cycle and no other reason can be discovered it may be suspected. The only way to diagnose accurately is by having a laparoscopic procedure.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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?

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 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?

Surgical decision: Surgical decision your case is a complex one to make, only experts in the field can help, I don't believe hysterectomy is the way to go, other more conservative protocols are available to treat your condition, please follow up with your gynecologist, good luck
