Endometriosis Treatment Specialist in NYC
The endometrium is the tissue that lines the inside of your uterus. Each month, as part of your menstrual cycle, these tissues thicken, break down, and are expelled from your uterus. When you have endometriosis, endometrial tissue implants outside of the endometrial lining — in fact, they appear outside of the uterus or on your ovaries, fallopian tubes, or pelvic lining.
Your Midtown Manhattan gynecologist Dr. Fernando Mariz may find endometrial tissues in your vagina, cervix or vulva. But they can also appear completely outside your reproductive system, in places such as your intestines, rectum, or bladder. They can even be found, although rarely, in abdominal surgery scars. The endometrial tissue — regardless of its location and the fact that the tissue has no way to exit your body — continues its normal cycle of thickening, breaking down, and bleeding. Signs and symptoms of endometriosis should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by a physician for an accurate diagnosis, a treatment plan can well as follow up.
