WHAT DOES ENDOMETRIOSIS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

endometriosis

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a gynecological condition in which cells from the lining of the uterus appear and flourish outside the uterine cavity, most commonly on the membrane which lines the abdominal cavity, the peritoneum. The uterine cavity is lined with endometrial cells, which are under the influence of female hormones. Endometrial cells in areas outside the uterus are also influenced by hormonal changes and respond in a way that is similar to the cells found inside the uterus. Symptoms of endometriosis are pain and infertility. The pain often is worse with the menstrual cycle and is the most common cause of secondary dysmenorrhea. Endometriosis was first identified by Baron Carl von Rokitansky in 1860. Endometriosis is typically seen during the reproductive years; it has been estimated that endometriosis occurs in roughly 6–10% of women. Symptoms may depend on the site of active endometriosis. Its main but not universal symptom is pelvic pain in various manifestations. There is an established association between endometriosis and infertility. Endometriosis has a significant social and psychological impact.

Definition of endometriosis in the English dictionary

The definition of endometriosis in the dictionary is the presence of endometrium in areas other than the lining of the uterus, as on the ovaries, resulting in premenstrual pain.
