Conditions of a Woman’s Reproductive System

A wide variety of conditions can affect a woman’s reproductive system. Most affect the pelvic region and the uterus, and include:

  • Uterine fibroids – non-cancerous growths in the wall of the uterus
  • Endometriosis – non-cancerous growths of the uterine lining
  • Prolapse – a falling of the uterus or vagina resulting from muscles weakened from age or child birth
  • Uterine, cervical or ovarian cancer
  • Excessive menstrual bleeding

Pelvic Conditions

Conditions involving the pelvic region can be debilitating and are sometimes under diagnosed or overlooked. Some of these include:

  • Adenomyosis – the thickening of the normal uterine tissue lining that migrates into the uterine muscles
  • Pelvic congestion – the presence of varicose veins in the lower abdomen
  • Congenital and acquired abnormalities

Any of these conditions can cause chronic pain, heavy bleeding and other disabling symptoms. Other organs can be affected as well, including the vagina, ovaries and fallopian tubes.
