Endometriosis has been, and remains poorly understood problem, and the percentage of women suffering from this disease is not reduced. In fact, with the development of modern technology has increased the number of patients with endometriosis. Not least in the development of the disease takes and frantic pace of life, stress and bad ecology. But the most important question of this disease, which is asked by patients and physicians: dangerous than endometriosis? Endometriosis is not considered and is not a harmless disease process, such as the common cold. Its effects and complications sometimes so severe that modern medicine has not yet found a way to overcome them.
As you know, the queen gives a hollow muscular organ, the main purpose of which is to child-bearing and birth. The uterus has three layers: the inside it is lined with mucous membrane (endometrium), the middle layer is the "thick" and presented muscle tissue, and outside the uterus covered serous membrane. In the development of endometriosis plays the role of an inner layer of the uterus. The endometrium during the menstrual cycle under the influence of sex hormones is modified. All cyclical changes that occur in the lining of the uterus, are aimed at the adoption of a fertilized egg (implantation). By the end of the menstrual cycle, the endometrium is thicker, blood circulation and metabolism

it amplified. If conception has not occurred, in the lining of the uterus occur degenerative and necrotic changes, and it is rejected (menstruation).
About endometriosis say when the cells, similar in structure to the endometrium, spread through the bloodstream or through retrograde throw menstrual blood through the body, and take root in the "favorite" for them. This can be as organs of the reproductive system and all other systems.
What is the risk of endometriosis
The effects and complications of the disease, as noted above, is often heavy and can not be treated. The main dangers of endometriosis include:
Infertility is probably the main danger of endometriosis. Although against this disease should not be talking about infertility as such, but to reduce the likelihood of a woman becoming pregnant. The key moment in the development of infertility appears adhesions. Adhesion formation accompanies all forms of endometriosis, regardless of their location. Adhesions lead to obstruction of pipes and violation of their contractile function. Local inflammatory reactions that accompany endometriosis, contribute to increased production of prostaglandins, which causes excessive contractions of the uterus, and as a result, miscarriage. In addition, endometriosis is reflected in the general hormonal profile of the body, hormonal disorders lead to a breach of folliculogenesis and oocyte maturation, that is to anovulation.
Menstrual disorders endometriosis is not only his trademark, but a complication. The cycle becomes erratic, appear brown discharge

before and after menstruation, and do monthly extremely painful. All of these changes are reflected in the cycle of emotional status of patients, leading them to depression and neuroticism
Depression - a little more than a bad mood
- Chronic hemorrhagic anemia

before and after a volume increase of monthly menstrual blood loss, which leads to the development of chronic posthemorrhagic anemia.
As already stated, endometriosis and adhesions "step" nearby. Besides the fact that adhesions are one of the causes of infertility, they are accompanied by severe pain. Pain when adhesions are permanent in nature and amplified before and during menstruation. In addition, the adhesions break the intimate life as a sexual act becomes very painful or even impossible.
Neurological disorders arise in the compression of nerve trunks large endometrial formations. Perhaps paralysis or paresis of the extremities, tingling sensation, sensitivity to cold and other "charms".
