Q: 

symptoms of endo?

A: Dear Amy: Thank you so much for writing.  I am sorry for what you have been enduring.  I am particularly sorry for your recent pregnancy losses. The only way to know for sure if you have Endometriosis is by surgical diagnosis in which biopsies can be taken and histology confirmed.  The good news is, the disease can also be removed at the same time, during the same procedure (typically a laparoscopy, which is minimally invasive and confers much less healing time than a traditional open surgery like the laparotomy). However, a diagnosis can be suspected based on symptoms.  Any pain is a sign that something is wrong, particularly pelvic pain - of which Endometriosis is a leading cause.  Painful sex and periods...
Q: 

Menstration an effect of endometriosis.

A: Hi Amber, Thank you for writing to me. I would suggest going to a doctor just to be on the safe side and find out about the "pieces of something". This is not a sign of Endo so I wouldn"t be too concerned about that. Although having something coming out of you when menstrating is not something I would consider normal either. It may be of no great concern but it is better to have things checked out. If you start having a lot of pain with your period then I would start looking into an Endo diagnosis. Usually pain is the most common symptom. There have been studies linking Endo and heredity. It is possible but it is not known for sure. So many women have Endo...
Q: 

Are heavy periods a symptom of cervical cancer?

A: Good news, I hope! No, there is no connection between cervical cancer and heavy periods. From what I`ve read, there isa connection between bleeding (or any discharge for that matter) in between periods and cervical cancer. But that`s a pretty late symptom of cervical cancer, so you really need to be getting screened annually by your doctor to catch any potential cervical cancer before it gets to the stage of causing symptoms such as heavy bleeding. But, also, I`ve read that heavy bleeding during your period could be a sign of something else, such as endometriosis (and I`ve known a number of my friends who have had it and had really horrible, heavy, painful...

Q: 

What Are the Pros and Cons of Hysterectomy for endometriosis?

A: A hysterectomy for endometriosis is often a personal decision between a patient and her doctor. For some, the procedure may result in a renewed zest for life because debilitating pain from the condition is eliminated. For others, menopausal symptoms are bothersome and surgery risks may pose additional problems for the patient. Once a woman''s reproductive organs are removed, she will no longer be able to have children. For this reason, hysterectomy for endometriosis is usually a last resort. The pain and suffering caused by endometriosis can be excruciating. Women with the disease may experience it at varying degrees. Some also experience pain during intercourse and find that their personal relationships suffer as a result. A hysterectomy...
