BCH lecture: Pelvic pain? Painful periods? Maybe it’s endometriosis. 8/31/23

  • Category: Women's Health

Endometriosis is a painful disorder in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus. Unfortunately, endometriosis often goes undetected for years because the pelvic pain associated with the condition is mistaken for severe menstrual cramps. When left untreated, it can slowly and progressively wreak havoc on a woman’s reproductive system, overall health and quality of life.

Hear board-certified OB-GYN Jeremiah McNamara, MD, describe risk factors for and symptoms of endometriosis. He’ll then discuss non-surgical and surgical treatments for this chronic, painful, and complex disease.
