Urine Changes In Endometriosis
White and pink tissue coming out in my urine. Could this mean my endometriosis has spread to my bladder?
Here are some. ..: To verify if indeed you are seeing white & pink tissue in urine, you need urinalysis (UA) to test the urine and cystoscopy to look into the bladder. If both are okay, you would be ok; if cystoscopy is okay but UA shows the "tissue", you need a complete set of imaging study such as CT. IVP to see the configuration and texture of entire urinary tract for completion. More detail? Ask urologist timely. ...Read more
Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more
Very unlikely; rare: Endometriotic implants have been reported in many sites outside the pelvic and abdominal cavity (like the lungs, the umbilicus, skin, cervix...) They may theoretically extend to the bladder and therefore could very rarely account for or "cause protein to show up in urine". A cystoscopic exam or a urine cytologic test for endometrial cells and hemosiderin deposits may help answer your question. ...Read more

I have endometriosis. I've had cloudy urine with an amonia smell to it. Had several urinalysis done all came out negative. What could this be?
Red and white blood cells in urine. Docs not worried - decided it was endometriosis (without further tests). Should I seek 2nd opinion?
DEFINITELY!: Red and white blood cells in urine could mean possible bladder infection; urine culture can confirm this. Endometriosis can only be diagnosed by a biopsy or direct visualization (can't biopsy something that you can't see so visualization is required) via laparoscopy. Start with a urine culture; if negative and there is suspicion for endometriosis, see a gynecologist. Best of luck. ...Read more
Bad vaginal burning 6 weeks. Dr puzzled. None of usual diagnoses. 53 long endometriosis history, very dark urine/bladder pain. Hot flashes/hysterectomy?
See answer: Most common causes of vaginal burning are infectious vaginitis (bv, yeast, std) which likely have already been ruled out. Irritant-related and atrophic vaginitis and lichen sclerosis usually evident on basis of hx and exam. Dark urine usually a reflection of concentrated urine if urinalysis otherwise normal. To me, your description is suggestive of "vulvodynia" and possible "interstitial cystitis". ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Taking avelox prednisone and albuterol nebulizer. Coughed really bad and had urine leakage. It was brown. I also have endometriosis.
Urine analysis: You should consider having your doctor do a urine analysis. This type of analysis involves giving a small sample of urine and testing urine to make sure that there is no bacteria in the urine. Sometimes medications especially antibiotics can cause color changes to occur in the urine as well. ...Read more

My sister has probable endometriosis, chronic sinus congestion, tonsil stones, atrophy in one eye, now blood and protein in urine. What could be the cause?
Unrelated: Don't look for a single cause. Endometriosis is extremely common, as are sinus troubles. A person can learn to remove their own tonsilloliths. Blood and protein in the urine in a woman are often contaminants but a cause should be sought. It's a waste of time to try to connect these. I'm glad you care for her and trust these concerns can all be addressed. Best wishes. ...Read more
Is it true that some patients with endometriosis have bloody stools, bloody urine, painful urination and painful bowel movements?
Yes: The presence of blood in the urine, stools, painful urination or painful bowel movements could be due to involvement of these organs with endometriosis but other conditions such ass ic, other tumors of the bladder or bowel need to be excluded. Inflammatory bowel diseases like crohn's/colitis needs to be excluded. ...Read more
My was recently diagnosed with endometriosis, she was given progest- to take two weeks at a time; she hasn't noticed any change. What else can be done?
Endometriosis Dx: You did not say how endometriosis was diagnosed or what symptoms are you having. It can only be definitively diagnosed with a diagnostic laparoscopy at which time all evident disease should be surgically removed. While the progesterone may reduce some of the pain, it is not going to treat the condition as it has been prescribed or improved the odds of pregnancy if that is your goal. ...Read more
Is there anything I can do at home for myself to help with endometriosis if there is anything? Change of diet? Possibly less soda?
May be related: Endometriosis can result from excess hormonal changes and implantation of endometrial tissue outside of the uterus. When this happens, it is called endometriosis, and may cause cyclic pain during your monthly menstrual period. Many times patients notice pain while having a bowel movement, and pain resolves after the menstrual cycle. I would recommend consult with an OBGYN. ...Read more
Are gastroparesis and endometriosis related? Why are these 2 often diagnosed together? What lifestyle/dietary changes can be made to cope with them?
Usually unrelated: Gastroparesis and endometriosis are usually unrelated (and not frequently diagnosed together...) unless endometriotic nodules and lesions would have spread to and implanted into the stomach wall and gastric lining to interfere with the functions of the stomach. It is not likely that "dietary changes can be made to cope with both of them". ...Read more

I have pcos endometriosis & im on bc to stop my cycles but im bleeding for 5 days where I have to change every 1-2 hrs with bad pain what's wrong?
Need An evaluation: Endometriosis should not cause the bleeding but can cause the pain. Pcos can cause the bleeding, and it may either be hormonal or from overgrown or polyp in the uterus as well. So it is important to figure out the cause. For instance, if it is from overgrowth or a polyp, birth control pills will not help you. ...Read more
Having a laparoscopic full hysterectomy in 2007 due to ovarian cysts and endometriosis I have noticed an odor after sex. No other changes or issues that I have noticed however. No itching, pain etc. What can cause this?
Vaginal odor: There is a condition called "bacterial vaginosis", which does produce an unpleasant odor. This can be treated with antibiotics, but if your partner has "other contacts" it can recur. Ask your gyn provider for an exam and treatment. ...Read more

WBC/leukocytes constantly in urine, but never nitrites or bacteria. Antibiotics don't help. If not UTI then what? Is endometriosis possible?
WBC in urine: I have seen U/A with trace of small WBC and no growth on urine culture in women who have had vaginitis with either mycoplasma, ureoplasma, BV, trichamonas, yeast (though with yeast/trichamonas they get itching). I usually treat with Zithromax/Flagyl/ Gynezole-1 or doxycycline/flagyl/gynezole-1. Don't know correlation with endometriosis, as that is more internal. Discuss with doctor ...Read more
