Endometriosis Treatment

Endometriosis is the irregular growth of endometrial tissue similar to that which lines in the inside of the uterus, but in a position which is outside the uterus. Endometrial tissue is shed every month through menstruation. Parts of endometrial tissue found in ectopic positions are called endometrial implants. These lesions are most normally found on the ovaries, the surface of the uterus, the fallopian tubes, the bowel, and on the membrane lining of the pelvic cavity. They are less frequently found to involve the vagina, bladder & cervix.

Endometriosis can also occur outside the pelvis. Endometriosis has been reported in the liver, lung, brain & old surgical scars. Endometrial implants, are problematic but usually benign.
  • Pain that usually occurs just before menstruation and lessens after menstruation
  • Painful intercourse
  • Cramping in the course of intercourse
  • Cramping or pain in the course of bowel movements or urination
  • Infertility

How is it Treated?

This problem can be solved though medication in most cases. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory Drugs, Gonadotropin-releasing hormone analog, Oral contraceptive pills, Progestins, Aromatase inhibitors are commonly used or prescribed by doctors.
Surgical treatment for endometriosis can be beneficial when the symptoms are severe or there has been an scarce response to medical therapy. Surgery is the favored treatment when there is anatomic distortion of the pelvic parts or impediment of the bowel or urinary tract. It may be classified either as traditional, in which the uterus and ovarian tissue are conserved, or definitive, which includes hysterectomy, with or without exclusion of the ovaries.

Treating this condition is a complex procedure which requires extreme precision & experience hence it would be great if you could visit an experienced doctor. With its state-of-the-art facilities, Smile Baby IVF is sure to take great care of you & keep your mind at peace.
