Endometriosis often not promptly diagnosed

Connecticut patients may be interested to learn that two-thirds of women have a friend, family member or acquaintance who has been diagnosed with endometriosis. Even so, getting diagnosed with this painful condition can still be difficult as both patients and doctors may not be aware of the symptoms.

Endometriosis is a medical condition that is estimated to affect 1 in 10 women. It causes uterine tissues to develop in other places outside the uterus. It can result in serious pain even when a woman is not on her period. If the condition is not diagnosed, it can potentially lead to pain during sex as well as infertility issues. In fact, some women may even live with the symptoms, which can include heavy bleeding between periods and heavier cramping during periods, for years.

There are several reasons why endometriosis may not be diagnosed in a timely manner. Some women do not mention the symptoms to their doctor as they believe that the pain they are experiencing is normal. Many women do not actually know the symptoms so they do not know to ask.

A misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis for some conditions like endometriosis can have serious effects on the patient. In the case of endometriosis, for example, patients could lose the ability to have a biological child or may needlessly suffer. If a doctor refused to diagnose a patient with endometriosis, a medical malpractice attorney may assist with seeking compensation for the injured patient. Depending on the patient's outcome, the attorney may recover the cost of medical bills resulting from a worsened condition.
