Could endometriosis be connected to a UTI?


Answer by  rayven8099 (199)

Endometriosis is a condition in which endometrical tissue grows in places outside of the uterus. A UTI, or urinary tract infection, is almost always caused by a microbe of some sort (commonly E. Coli). Endometriosis has not been linked to microbial infections at this time.

Endometriosis is when the uterine lining sheds internal to someones bodily tissues. It is not caused by a UTI, though a UTI that also goes into the uterus itself can worsen endometriosis symptoms during your period.

Yes it very well could be. Sometimes UTIs are often mistaken for endometriosis. They can even cause them. The reason being is that endometriosis can also cause an infection down there, and it is almost impossible to tell which one it is sometimes. However, they can also be disconnected as well.
