Endometriosis Self Assessment Tool

Could your symptoms be related to Endometriosis

Take a short quiz if you have a family history of endometriosis or to find out if you have symptoms that may be associated with endometriosis.

What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a medical condition in which the tissue that usually grows inside the uterus begins to grow in other parts of the body. This can include the outer surface of the uterus, the fallopian tubes, the ovaries, or other areas in the pelvic region. Because the tissue is growing where it shouldn’t, it can cause severe pain. The pain can be due to cramping in the uterus and in other parts of the body where the tissue is growing. Additionally, endometriosis can cause scarring, which can also be a source of pain.

It can be difficult to know if you have endometriosis because everyone experiences pain differently. Therefore, it’s important to pay attention to any pain you’re experiencing and not ignore it. If you’re experiencing unexplained pelvic pain or discomfort, it’s a good idea to speak with your doctor. They can help determine if you have endometriosis or another medical condition and recommend appropriate treatment options.

Do I have endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a prevalent health condition among women, and its diagnosis can be challenging. Its symptoms can overlap with those of other health conditions, making it difficult to detect.

Therefore, taking a quiz to determine the likelihood of having endometriosis is crucial. After taking the quiz, confidently share your symptoms and the result with your doctor. Discuss the possibility of endometriosis with your doctor and seek appropriate medical advice. Remember, taking control of your health is essential, and your doctor is there to help you.

What are the treatments for endometriosis?

Treatment aims to relieve symptoms with a combination of medications and surgery. Medication options include pain relievers, contraceptives, and hormonal therapy. Surgery may be offered for severe diseases and may help with infertility.

Young women with endometriosis often have common symptoms. The following test aims to help you understand if you have one or more symptoms that are commonly associated with endometriosis.

Please Note: This is not a validated test for endometriosis and answers should not be treated as an official diagnosis.

What questions might my doctor ask to check for endometriosis?

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose endometriosis

  • Do you have abdominal pain (stomach ache)?

  • Do you have pain in the lumbar back?

  • Do you have pain in the bottom left area of your abdomen (stomach)?

  • Do you have lower abdominal (stomach) pain when you empty your bowels?

  • Do you have severe menstrual cramps?

What are the typical symptoms of endometriosis?

  • Abdominal pain

  • Low back pain

  • Lower left abdomen or tummy pain

  • Lower abdomen/tummy pain when passing stool

  • Painful menstrual cramps

  • Pain in the pelvis- the lowest part of the abdomen, between the belly button and groin

  • History of infertility

Why is it difficult to diagnose?

It takes an average of six to 10 years of experiencing symptoms before a woman usually gets diagnosed with endometriosis.
One reason for this may be how difficult it is to diagnose endometriosis.
“To definitively diagnose it, you have to have surgery,” Dr. Foster said.
It’s hard for doctors to justify surgery unless they are fairly certain endometriosis is the cause of the symptoms. That’s why Dr. Foster recommends keeping a detailed account of your menstrual cycle.
“The best thing is to keep a very detailed menstrual calendar,” she said. “Rank your pain level every day and write down your symptoms, such as when the pain started, how long it lasted, and whether it came before or after the onset of bleeding.”
