    Please explain endometriosis to me!!

    Hi everyone,
    I was just wondering, what exactly is endometriosis and what are the exact symptoms? (ex, does it cause diarrhea and gas). Also, what can be done to fix endometriosis? Thanks..Lillisa (worried and scared)

    Just wanted to reply to your question about endometriosis. As far as it causing diarrhea and/or gas----I know for me it is true. Everyone is a little different but I have heard from a lot of other women that also have endo. that they have trouble with diarrhea, constipation and gas. Please know that there is no cure for endo. and the only way that it can be diagnosed is by a surgical procedure called a laproscope. Some of the symptoms are: pain in the pelvic area usually worse at the time of your menses. Pain can also be on the left or right side or both, low back pain. There are others but that gives you an idea. I am talking from experience as I was diagnosed with endo. in July 2001. Someone else listed some links for you that are really good sources of information. Please make sure that you get a good ob/gyn that has experience with dealing with endo. Good luck!
