1 Answer:

Hi Dian,

Endometriosis is a condition in which the growth of the inner lining of the uterine lining (endometrium) outside the uterus. Complaints from this condition can vary between individuals, however endometriosis usually causes the following complaints:

 Abdominal pain, especially around the menstrual schedule Urinary pain More amount of blood and menstrual tissue or even very much Endometriosis is not an indication of pap smear (pap test). Pap test is an examination that aims to assess the condition of the cervix (cervix) and early detection of cervical cancer. This Pap test is also useful for detecting abnormalities in female fluids due to various things such as bacterial or fungal infections.

Although endometriosis is not an indication of a pap test, a pap test should still be routinely performed if a woman is sexually active. A woman is recommended to do a pap test every few years (depending on age and results of previous examinations) for early detection of disorders of the cervix and femininity.

Since your sister has received medical attention from the doctor and her complaints are still settled, I strongly recommend that your younger sister discuss the matter with the doctor who treats her so that she can get further treatment according to her condition and needs. If needed, the doctor can recommend a surgical procedure to treat endometriosis.
