Family Health Services Inc. ( is proud to be able to diagnose endometriosis so that people can start treatment as soon as possible. Endometriosis is an inflammatory condition where endometrial tissue (tissue similar to the lining of the uterus) grows outside of the uterus. It is estimated that one in 10 women have endometriosis. Endometriosis frequently presents with the symptoms of painful periods, pain during or after sexual intercourse, heavy bleeding, chronic pelvic or abdominal pain and infertility. Women with endometriosis have a higher risk of developing ovarian cancer.

It takes an average of seven-and-a-half years for endometriosis to be diagnosed. But you can get help immediately at Family Health Services if you are experiencing symptoms. Their caring and comprehensive providers are available Monday-Friday in Lincoln for all your reproductive health needs (preventative health screenings, cervical cancer screenings/PAPs, breast cancer screenings, contraceptives and many other services).
