Endometriosis Diagnosis

How is endometriosis diagnosed?

The probability that you have endometriosis is more likely when, alongside difficulty falling pregnant, you have one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Painful menstrual bleeding on the first days of your period or before the menstrual bleeding begins
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Painful bowel movements or when urinating during your period
  • Additional symptoms during your period, such as circulatory problems (even fainting), nausea, and vomiting.

If you recognise any of the symptoms listed above, then we advise to arrange an appointment in the next few days at our endometriosis practice!
During a comprehensive conversation, we will ask you about your symptoms which may offer evidence of endometriosis while compiling your general medical history. This is followed by a gynaecological examination with ultrasound assessment. Should it be determined that the presence of endometriosis is likely, we will then discuss the necessary further procedure with you. To either definitively rule out or confirm endometriosis, an operative procedure known as a laparoscopy is needed. This can be carried out either on an inpatient or outpatient basis at one of the Endometriosis Centres in our region. We provide you with the referral.

Objective of the laparoscopy:

  • To either definitively confirm or rule out the presence of endometriosis
  • Determination of the severity of the endometriosis
  • Removal of affected tissue
  • Assessment of Fallopian tube function
