If you have rectal pain after sex, you may be suffering from Endometriosis. Endometriosis often sticks the vagina to the rectum. Rectal pain caused by endometriosis during sex is deep and continues after sex.
The pain is usually only one or two times a day. Often, the pain can last for the first week after sex but then gradually get better over a few days to a week.
What is Endometriosis
Endometriosis is the term used to describe a collection of cells located in the endometrium or lining of the uterus. Cells that line the uterus and cervix are the cells that grow and divide, but their own cells have no need for any nourishment. The uterus, cervix and other pelvic organs are lined with the endometrial cells, as well as the surrounding blood-filled tissues that fill in around the cells.
These tissues support the endometrial cells and form blood vessels. When this lining loses its support, pain can be felt during a period or as pain during intercourse or during bowel movements. Endometriosis is different from other pelvic conditions like cancer, cystitis, and endometriosis.
There are three different types of Endometriosis. Cystitis (an inflammation of the uterus or endometrium) is when the cyst starts to develop outside of the uterus. Cystitis that develops outside the uterus is called ectopic (abundant in part or in complete).
It often begins when the uterus is inflamed or infected. It doesn’t have to be a cancer or cyst. Cystitis that develops near the uterus can be termed endometriosis. A woman may also develop endometriosis while pregnant.
Endometriosis is also called pelvic endometriosis. It is most common in women who have had a previous or subsequent operation to remove uterine tissue outside the uterus.
What causes Endometriosis
There are a number of different reasons why a woman may have Endometriosis.
Many of these are common in women, including infection, medication, pregnancy, pelvic inflammation or pain, or an infection, pregnancy, or use of medication that affects the uterus.
Other Causes of Endometriosis
There are other reasons why a woman may have Endometriosis, including:
Rhinitis, a skin disease that affects the skin, joints, muscles, and blood vessels in and around the uterus.
Vaginal discharge that may include mucus, semen, or eggs and may become infected. A woman with endometriosis might experience pain during sex or a heavy period after sex.
Infections during pregnancy or during the first trimester or before a baby is born.
What is the treatment for Endometriosis
The treatments for the symptoms of endometriosis and its complications include:
These treatments often take months to treat symptoms. They may involve surgery, surgery to drain an endometrial cyst, or surgery of the endometrial lining.
These treatment methods sometimes don’t work. A woman may need a combination of these treatments in order to improve pain and symptoms.
These injections can also cause pain, and may have side effects. A woman’s options include:
These are medical implants made to strengthen the uterus to better support the woman and her baby. They might help the uterine lining heal after surgery or after the birth of a baby with a uterus.
This surgery uses artificial, hollow tube-like materials that surround the uterus to hold the growing cells. The procedure can be done after a cyst is found to block the uterus’s movement. The surgeon may insert artificial fibrocystic tissue (FCT), a thin substance that can be inserted through a catheter through an incision made in the abdomen. The FCT is then used to strengthen the endometrial lining, thereby improving the ability of the endometrium to grow and repair.
This is an effective method of treatment. A woman does not need to find another doctor to have her tubes tied. A sterilization procedure is performed to remove the endometrial tissue.
If a woman has already had surgery to remove endometrial tissue outside her uterus, she may be referred for surgery to remove the endometrial cells in the uterus. She will then need to be treated with medication that helps the cells and tissue to repair. This may include the injection of estrogen or other hormone that prevents the growth and destruction of endometrial cells, or chemotherapy.
How does Endometriosis affect my period
While Endometriosis can cause some pain during a period, most women experience little or no pain, which means they do not need to follow any different routine to control their period. There are some women that may suffer from Endometriosis for many years but do not feel pain when they have their period.
These women may have an infection in the uterus and/or have a weakened uterus that has not healed after the surgery. Women with Endometriosis for an extended periods will need to undergo surgery to remove the endometrial tissues of the endometrium from their uterus, using anesthesia.
