Ultrasound To Diagnose Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition where cells that are traditionally located within the womb cavity are located outside. This condition affects about 10% of the female population and is usually found in women in their thirties or forties. However, it can also be found in teens and young women.

Unfortunately, it is a long term condition that can have a significant impact on your life, but there are treatments out there that can help. Using our high-frequency sound waves ultrasound, we can locate the deep infiltrating endometriosis problem; using a vaginal scan, we can determine the damage and whether you need to be seen by a professional. Once you have an endometriosis diagnosis, you will be able to speak to a professional in the female reproductive system and see how they can help you.

Our endometriosis ultrasound scan investigates the womb area and checks whether this condition appears within the patient. It will look for these cells outside of the womb using ultrasound scanning. Please do not worry; a transvaginal ultrasound will not cause you any pain.

The main symptoms of endometriosis are as follows;

  • period pains that stop you from doing day to day activities
  • Pain after sexual intercourse
  • pain when peeing or pooing whilst you are on your period
  • Sickness, diarrhoea, blood in your pee
  • Failing to get pregnant
  • Superficial lesions are seen on an ultrasound

 

You may also find that you have heavy periods, heavy enough to use a large number of pads and tampons, sometimes even bleeding through your clothes. This is one of the more significant symptoms.

For some women, endometriosis can have a significant impact on their life. It may sometimes lead to feelings of depression., it can genuinely change the way you live your life, allowing us the chance to offer you an ultrasound to diagnose your condition rather than you simply living with it.

These treatments include;

  • painkillers
  • Hormone medicines and contraceptive pills
  • Surgery to remove patches of endometriosis tissue
