What is Endometriosis?

When someone has endometriosis, they experience strong pain because tissue that’s supposed to be inside the uterus ends up growing outside. This can cause aching, bleeding that’s not normal, and challenges in becoming pregnant. Commonly, this misplaced tissue could show up on the ovaries, tubes connecting to the uterus, and the pelvic region.

The reason someone might get endometriosis is still a mystery. It might have to do with hormones, if it runs in the family, problems with how the body defends against illness, infections, or backward menstrual flow.

Treating endometriosis in a well-rounded way can greatly ease symptoms and help people feel better.

Endometriosis Symptoms

Endometriosis Symptoms

The condition known as endometriosis can present through various signs. It’s common for people to experience a mix of these symptoms, or perhaps only one or two.
  • Infertility
  • Pelvic pain
  • Painful menstrual periods (dysmenorrhea, which can sometimes cause severe pain)
  • Pain during intercourse (dyspareunia)
  • Excessive menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia)
  • Gastrointestinal issues (such as diarrhea, issues with bowel movements, constipation, or bloating)
  • Fatigue
  • Lower back pain

How is Endometriosis Diagnosed?

The process to identify if a person has endometriosis includes a review of their medical history, a physical check-up, particularly a pelvic examination, and imaging techniques. Sometimes, a procedure called laparoscopy is done where a slender device is used to look at the uterus by accessing the abdominal area, and occasionally, samples of the tissue are taken for further analysis.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes endometriosis pain?
The discomfort linked to endometriosis arises due to the expansion of endometrial cells beyond the uterus, resulting in inflammation, scarring, and adhesions in the pelvic region, notably during menstruation.
How can endometriosis cause infertility?
For women with endometriosis, the road to pregnancy can be challenging. This health issue leads to abnormal growths or scarring that can create obstacles for eggs as they try to migrate to the fallopian tubes, hindering the fertilization process. Imbalances in the hormones that come with endometriosis may affect ovulation, the body’s routine of making eggs ready for pregnancy. What’s more, the swelling caused by endometriosis could harm the performance of both sperm and eggs, which might reduce fertility chances.
How is holistic treatment for endometriosis different from traditional treatment methods?
To deal with endometriosis, people often use treatments such as off-the-shelf drugs, prescription pain medications, surgeries to remove abnormal growths, or a full hysterectomy for serious cases. However, many of these options don’t get to the bottom of what’s actually causing endometriosis.

Dr. Yuabova’s approach is to identify the underlying health condition that results in your endometriosis, which is critical in selecting the proper treatment. In general, a functional blood test is performed to better understand hormone balances and to see how your body is functioning overall.

How can you treat endometriosis holistically?
The holistic management of endometriosis encompasses lifestyle modifications and natural therapies in conjunction with medical interventions. These strategies aim to enhance traditional treatments by embracing a proactive stance toward well-being, with a focus on overall health improvement and symptom management.

In contrast, conventional medical practices often adopt a reactive approach to treating endometriosis, utilizing medications for pain control, hormonal therapies to inhibit endometrial tissue proliferation, or surgical procedures to excise endometriosis tissue and scar tissue.
