What are the symptoms of endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a painful disorder that occurs when tissue similar to the lining of a woman’s uterus grows in other areas. It can cause severe pain, with symptoms that include:

  • Painful periods
  • Painful bowel movements
  • Pain during or after intercourse
  • Fatigue
  • Bloating
  • Fertility issues and other complications

Why does it take so long for endometriosis to be diagnosed in the UK?

It takes, on average, 7.5 years to reach a diagnosis of endometriosis in the UK. Mr Shaheen Khazali, believes this delay is unacceptable and in this video he talks about diagnosing endometriosis sooner.

How is endometriosis diagnosed?

At The Centre for Endometriosis we offer patients a range of diagnostic options, including pelvic ultrasound and specialised MRI scans, which can be help to identify abnormalities in many cases. 

Our exceptional multidisciplinary team consists of consultant radiologists – all of whom have specialist expertise in endometriosis. This is essential, not only to diagnose the extent of the disease, but also to appropriately plan surgery if required.

A normal ultrasound or MRI does not rule out endometriosis and sometimes it is necessary to carry out a laparoscopy - a minimally-invasive procedure carried out under general anaesthetic that helps to definitively diagnose or rule out endometriosis. 

Highly specialised endometriosis treatment

Mr Khazali is recognised internationally for his advanced skills, innovative techniques, experience and knowledge in the excision of endometriosis.

He will provide the full range of treatment options to best manage your symptoms, and our expert team are here to tailor a treatment plan specific to your needs.

Dependent on the severity of your condition, we can provide different medications to ease the pain. Should you require surgery to remove the growth, our leading specialists can carry out advanced excision surgery by laparoscopy.

Does a hysterectomy cure endometriosis?

A laparoscopy is not always the only procedure offered for endometriosis, sometimes a hysterectomy is undertaken as well, particularly for those patients who are also diagnosed with adenomyosis. Mr Khazali explains what adenomysis is.
