Endometriosis is a condition where cells appearing identical to normal endometrium (the lining of the uterus) are found growing ectopically elsewhere in the body, most commonly in the lower abdomen. It is estimated that between 5 and 15% of all women suffer with this condition. Symptoms of endometriosis may include pelvic pain, lower back pain, intermittent pain throughout the menstrual cycle, dyspareunia, pain with urination or stool, excessive bleeding or tissue shedding during menses, constipation or nausea during menses, and infertility. The cause of endometriosis remains a matter of debate. One theory holds that retrograde menstruation deposits endometrial tissue into the peritoneum through the uterine tubes. This theory is challenged by the fact that retrograde menstruation occurs to some extent in 90% of women, and therefore cannot in itself be considered sufficient to cause the disorder. Another theory holds that uncontrolled estrogen levels can induce metaplasia in mesodermal tissue, causing it to transform into endometrium. This theory is supported by 1) the fact that ectopic endometrial tissue has been found in sites quite distant from the pelvic cavity, and 2) that endometrial tissue has been discovered in men undergoing estrogen therapy for prostate cancer. Either way, it is acknowledged that estrogen mediates the symptoms, which generally remit after menopause. There has also been speculation of a link between endometriosis and a history of recurrent vaginal infections, and it is increasingly suspected that immune dysfunction or possibly microflora imbalance may contribute to the disorder. If excessive menstrual bleeding is present, the patient should also be screened for anemia.
