Time Matters. Get Tested Now.

One in 10 women in the United States suffer from endometriosis. Many asymptomatic women discover they have endometriosis only after they have trouble conceiving. Treatments for Endometriosis are most successful in early stages.

Excessively painful periods caused by endometriosis

Endometriosis causes excessively painful periods primarily due to the presence of endometrial-like tissue outside the uterus. During the menstrual cycle, this tissue reacts to hormonal changes, leading to inflammation, scarring, and the formation of adhesions. The pain arises from these processes and can be severe.

Bleeding between periods caused by endometriosis

Elevated levels of androgens (male hormones) in women with PCOS can disrupt the balance of reproductive hormones. This hormonal imbalance can interfere with the maturation of eggs in the ovaries and the regular development of the uterine lining, making it challenging for a fertilized egg to implant.

Painful bowel movements caused by endometriosis

Endometriosis can cause painful bowel movements due to the presence of endometrial-like tissue outside the uterus. When this tissue, which typically lines the inside of the uterus, implants itself on or around the bowel or rectum, it can lead to various symptoms, including pain during bowel movements.

Endometriosis Treatment with Dr. Amos E. Madanes works to alleviate the pain, bleeding, and infertility caused by Endometriosis by addressing the underlying causes and managing symptoms. While each treatment plan is unique to your needs and circumstances, here are some methods that may be deployed in your journey to health or fertility.

Hormonal Therapies for endometriosis treatment
Birth Control Pills: Regulating hormonal fluctuations through birth control pills can help control the growth and shedding of endometrial tissue, reducing pain during menstruation. Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone (GnRH) Agonists: These medications suppress ovarian hormone production, inducing a temporary menopausal state. This can alleviate pain by suppressing the growth and activity of endometrial tissue.
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs
(NSAIDs) for endometriosis treatment NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen, can help manage pain and inflammation associated with endometriosis. They are often used as part of the pain management strategy during menstruation.
Endometriosis Surgery
Laparoscopic Excision: A minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove endometrial tissue, adhesions, and cysts. This can provide relief from pain and improve fertility. Hysterectomy: In severe cases, when other treatments are ineffective, a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) may be considered. This is a last resort, especially for those who have completed their family planning. It is best to diagnosis endometriosis early so don’t delay.
Lifestyle Advice for endometriosis treatment
Dietary Modifications: Some women find relief by making dietary changes, such as reducing inflammatory foods and increasing anti-inflammatory foods. Exercise: Regular physical activity can help alleviate pain by improving overall health and reducing inflammation.
Fertility Treatment within endometriosis treatment
For those experiencing fertility issues due to endometriosis, fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) may be considered.
Endometriosis Treatment is personalized
It’s important to note that the choice of treatment depends on the severity of symptoms, your reproductive goals, and individual preferences. A comprehensive and personalized approach, often involving a combination of medical, surgical, and lifestyle interventions, is essential for managing the pain associated with endometriosis.

Endometriosis is a multifaceted condition that can involve both pain and fertility challenges. We work with you to design a comprehensive approach that addresses the various aspects of endometriosis rather than focusing solely on one symptom. Schedule an Endometriosis consultation.

We incorporate the following elements into our diagnosis of endometriosis:

Physical Examination: A pelvic exam may be conducted to check for abnormalities, tenderness, or the presence of masses that could be indicative of endometriosis.

Imaging Studies: While imaging studies like ultrasounds and MRIs can identify some endometriotic lesions or cysts, they are not always conclusive for diagnosis. However, they may be used to rule out other conditions.

Laparoscopy: The most definitive method for diagnosing endometriosis is laparoscopy. During this minimally invasive surgical procedure, a thin, lighted tube (laparoscope) is inserted through a small incision in the abdomen. The surgeon can visually inspect the pelvic organs and take tissue samples (biopsies) for confirmation

For those trying to conceive, fertility support is often a priority. We support women seeking to optimizing fertility, addressing ovulatory issues, and exploring fertility treatment options if needed. Schedule an endometriosis consultation.

Endometriosis is a common gynecological disorder that affects an estimated 10 percent of women of reproductive age in the United States. Medical researchers remain uncertain of the precise cause of endometriosis, though progress continues to be made in the areas of diagnosis and treatment. While endometriosis most commonly affects women in their 20s and 30s, the disease can be found in women of all ages. The primary symptoms of endometriosis are severe discomfort during menstruation and sexual intercourse, chronic pelvic pain, and infertility.

Endometriosis: A Definition

Endometriosis: A Definition

During menstruation, the lining of the uterus, known as the endometrium, is shed. Endometriosis occurs when the endometrium begins to develop outside of the uterus, on the fallopian tubes, ovaries, and other organs in the pelvic region, causing serious complications.

The endometrial tissue that is growing outside of the uterus continues to respond to the hormones released during the menstrual cycle. This means that each month, the endometrial tissue outside of the uterus builds up, breaks down, and bleeds. The body reacts to this internal bleeding by surrounding the endometrial tissue with scar tissue. Over time, this scar tissue builds up, resulting in the chronic pain experienced by many endometriosis sufferers.

For some women, scar tissue can develop around the ovaries and fallopian tubes, which may block both the release of an oocyte and its passage through the fallopian tubes into the uterus, thereby preventing pregnancy. Although pain is an indicator of the presence of endometriosis, the level of pain experienced does not directly correlate to the extent of the condition. Some women do not experience any pain, yet they have moderate to severe endometriosis; others have terrible pain, but have only minimal endometrial growths. This is why it is so essential for patients to get an accurate diagnosis of the disease.

We have highly trained doctors who specialize in treating endometriosis symptoms at our Chicago and Northwest Indiana clinics. If you suffer from chronic pelvic pain and have been unable to get pregnant, we recommend that you contact Midwest Fertility Center to arrange a consultation with a member of our team as soon as possible.

Diagnosing Endometriosis

While severe pain during menstruation and sexual intercourse can be an indication that endometrial growths are present, one of the most accurate methods of detecting endometriosis is through diagnostic laparoscopy performed at one of our Chicago or Northwest Indiana centers.

Laparoscopy is a minor surgical procedure in which a tiny camera is placed through an incision in the abdomen, allowing the surgeon to clearly view the pelvic and abdominal organs and check for endometrial growths. Knowing the extent of a patient’s endometriosis is important for creating an appropriate and effective treatment strategy.

During laparoscopy, the physician may chose to surgically remove endometrial lesions. Another treatment option is the administration of Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone Agonists (GnRHa), which can be performed in conjunction with surgical intervention or on its own.

GnRHa Therapy

GnRH, short for Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone, stimulates and regulates the release of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH), two pituitary hormones that are essential for reproduction. FSH catalyzes the maturation of the follicles to produce an oocyte; a surge in LH initiates ovulation.

GnRHa therapy is a non-surgical treatment method that uses doses of Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone Agonists to help lower estrogen levels in the body. By lowering estrogen levels, GnRHa therapy decreases the size of endometrial growths, providing relief from the symptoms associated with the condition. If the pain improves, GnRHa therapy can be continued for a full six months.
