Endometriosis affects a huge number of women throughout the world. It has been estimated that between 1% and 15% of women who are examined for pelvic pain and infertility may have endometriosis; the true prevalence is unknown because diagnosis can only be made with any accuracy by laparoscopic examination of the pelvis. This book provides clinicians with all the information they need in a succinct and clear text, with colour illustrations. Chapters cover: epidemiology and aetiology; diagnosis; investigation; medical treatment; and surgical treatment.
Endometriosis is an oestrogen-dependent disease and is usually not encountered after menopause. Endometriosis-associated pain is treated with drugs that suppress oestrogen secretion in the ovaries. Hormonal products used to reduce pain also prevent pregnancy and are not recommended for infertility patients.Surgery relieves pain and may improve infertility.
