Poor bladder function rife among women with endometriosis: study

These patients appear to experience greater than average rate of lower urinary tract symptoms, researchers have found

Women with endometriosis are up to six times more likely to report difficulty passing urine or pain when the bladder is full than those without the disorder, a cohort study shows.

The results suggest a need to address lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) during the diagnosis and management of endometriosis, the US researchers say.
