Some painful women's health conditions go undiagnosed

Many Colorado women have noted that they struggle with receiving a correct diagnosis for medical problems, especially those that concern the female reproductive system. For years, they have shared their stories of doctors dismissing their pain and discomfort or focusing only on fertility. However, more attention has been drawn recently to disorders like endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and fibroids. Not only can these conditions contribute to infertility, they can also lead to serious pain or other physical symptoms.

While some gynecological conditions may be correctly diagnosed more frequently, others remain obscure despite affecting many women. Adenomyosis is one such disorder. While some experts estimate that 10% of women may be affected by the condition, it is rarely diagnosed quickly or correctly. Instead, women may suffer from a misdiagnosis for years. Adenomyosis is a condition in which the lining of the uterus grows in the uterine muscle instead. It is similar to endometriosis, in which the uterine lining grows outside the uterus altogether. The condition can lead to debilitating pain that makes some sufferers unable to work on a regular basis. It can also cause persistent infertility. However, many women receive improper or mistaken treatments that fail to resolve the problem.

While adenomyosis does not appear to lead to uterine cancer, it can interfere substantially with women's quality of life. The pain associated has been described as worse than childbirth. Other women who want to start a family may find themselves struggling with unexplained infertility or trying ineffective treatments for other disorders.

A misdiagnosis due to a doctor's can contribute to a worsened health condition, especially when people could have accessed the right treatment earlier with a proper diagnosis. Women who have suffered due to a medical mistake may consult with a malpractice attorney about the potential to pursue compensation.
