Causes

Endometriosis affects a woman’s reproductive organs when cells similar to those that line the uterus are found in other parts of the body. What happens when you have endometriosis, causes and symptoms are discussed.

What causes endometriosis?

what causes endometriosis?

We don’t really know what causes endometriosis, and possible causes or factors may be different from person to person.

  • Family history: women who have a close relative with the condition are up to 7-10 times more likely to get endometriosis. Also, it is common with twins that both may get endometriosis, particularly if they are identical twins
  • Retrograde (backwards) menstruation: When a woman has a period, the blood flows out of the vagina, but also backwards along the fallopian tubes into the pelvis. In 90% of women, the blood, which will contain endometrial cells is absorbed or broken down and causes no symptoms; however, in women with endometriosis, this endometrial tissue starts to grow.
  • Metaplasia: the conversion of the normal pelvic tissue into endometriosis.

Other possible factors that may have a role in causing endometriosis are:

  • having a first pregnancy at an older age
  • heavy bleeding during periods and periods lasting longer than five days
  • first period before 11 years of age
  • regularly having less than 27 days between periods, or having shorter regular cycles
  • changes in the immune cells
  • low body weight
  • alcohol use

What happens?

The endometrial cells:

  • are found on organs in the pelvis
  • may start to grow and form patches or nodules on pelvic organs or on the peritoneum (the inside lining of the abdomen and pelvis, see image)
  • have the same cyclical/menstrual changes outside the uterus as inside the uterus
  • may bleed at the same time as your period (menstruation)

Factors that may lower the risk of getting endometriosis are:

  • how many children you have – the chance of getting endometriosis may lower with each pregnancy (this may be related to the hormone progesterone during pregnancy)
  • younger age of first pregnancy
  • breastfeeding for a longer period
  • regular exercise of more than four hours per week (this may also help with pelvic pain for endometriosis)

There may be different forms or types of endometriosis

  • Superficial peritoneal patches (surface lining patches or plaques)
  • Deep infiltrating endometriosis, in which endometriosis causes scarring and nodules which can grow into nearby organs, such as the bladder, bowel and ovary. In the ovary it causes a ‘chocolate cyst’ or endometrioma
  • Adenomyosis, whereby the endometrial cells grow inside the muscle of the uterus
  • Outside the pelvis – this is rare
  • Upper abdomen eg, on the diaphragm
  • In the liver, nose, eye
  • Abdominal wall, often associated with previous operation scarring
  • Adolescent endometriosis, which may have different causes

Symptoms you may experience

Pain is a key symptom of this condition and is not related to how severe the disease is, but to the location of the endometrial tissue.

Bloating

  • Increase abdominal bloating, with or without pain at the time of the period

Pain

  • Pain immediately before and during a period
  • Pain during or after sex
  • Abdominal, back and/or pelvic pain
  • Pain on going to the toilet, passing urine, opening bowels
  • Ovulation pain, including pain in the thigh or leg (this can also happen normally in some women)

Bleeding

  • Heavy bleeding, with or without clots
  • Irregular bleeding, with or without a regular cycle
  • Bleeding longer than normal
  • Bleeding before a period is due

Bladder and bowel problems

  • Bleeding from the bladder or bowel
  • Change in pattern of bowel habit, such as constipation, diarrhoea
  • The need to urinate more frequently or some other change from the normal habit

Bloating

  • Increase abdominal bloating, with or without pain at the time of the period

Tiredness

  • Tiredness or lack of energy, especially around the time of the period

Reduced quality of life

  • Taking days off work, study or school because of an inability to function normally

Vagina

  • Pelvic floor muscle spasm or tightening occurring because of fear of pain previously experienced with intercourse or tampon use

Symptoms during pregnancy

In many cases, the symptoms of endometriosis appear to go away with pregnancy. This is thought to be because pregnancy hormones cause the endometriosis to reduce. After the baby is born the effects of endometriosis are unclear. In a small study of 23 women, the endometrial lesions worsened in the first three months of pregnancy but improved as the pregnancy continued. Complications of endometriosis during pregnancy are rare.

Symptoms during menopause

Usually, endometriosis does go away after menopause. It may return with the use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), but this is rare. Even more rarely, it can return for no reason.

When to get help

Get help when period pain is stopping normal daily activities. For example:

  • missing work, school or recreational activities
  • when medicines used for period pain don’t help reduce the pain
  • when you need to stay in bed due to pain
  • when symptoms are getting worse
