Endometriosis – which normally occurs in the ovaries, pelvic or bowel tissue – can be quite painful, especially if it strikes during a woman’s menstrual cycle. Dr. Rania Ibrahim finds that the pain associated with endometriosis in her patients is typically worse than that of a normal period and it worsens each day.
When endometriosis is present, the tissue that should be lining the inside of the uterus is growing on the outside, which can ultimately affect a woman’s ability to conceive. Fortunately, a number of safe and effective treatments are available at our office.
Some symptoms of endometriosis include:
- Painful periods;
- Painful intercourse, urination or bowel movements;
- Heavy bleeding;
- Constantly feeling tired,
- Nausea and/or bloating;
- Diarrhea or constipation during your period.
To confirm a diagnosis of endometriosis, your OB-GYN will review your symptoms with you, including the location and frequency of the pain. She may also perform a pelvic exam, laparoscopy or ultrasound.
Endometriosis can usually be treated effectively with medicine, surgery or a combination. The approach that you and your OB-GYN decide upon will be dependent on how severe your symptoms are and whether or not you want to become pregnant any time in the future.
We initially try traditional treatment approaches such as pain medications and hormone therapy, beginning with contraceptives in simple cases and surgery – such as a hysterectomy – in more extreme cases.
If you feel that you may be suffering from endometriosis and need a caring and experienced female OB-GYN then call the professional and caring staff at New Beginnings OB-GYN under the direction of Dr. Rania Ibrahim in Conroe, TX.
