What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a long-lasting disease that can cause a lot of pain. It happens when a type of tissue, which typically lines the inside of the uterus, grows outside of it. This can result in discomfort, bleeding that’s not part of the normal menstrual cycle, and it may make it difficult for a woman to become pregnant. This condition often affects the ovaries, tubes that carry eggs from the ovaries to the uterus, and other areas near the uterus.

Doctors aren’t exactly sure what causes endometriosis, but it might be linked to hormones, a history of the disease in the family, issues with the body’s defenses against diseases, being exposed to parasites, or the backward flow of menstrual blood. 

Treating endometriosis in a way that considers the whole person, not just the disease, could lead to better daily living and a decrease or disappearance of symptoms.


Endometriosis Symptoms

Endometriosis presents with a variety of symptoms, which may include the following. While some individuals may encounter all of these symptoms, others may only experience a subset. 
  • 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 diagnosis of endometriosis commonly includes a thorough review of medical history, physical examination (including pelvic assessment), and medical imaging. Occasionally, a laparoscopy is performed, involving the insertion of a slender tube into the abdomen to directly examine the uterus. Tissue samples may be obtained as required.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes endometriosis pain?
Endometriosis is a condition where cells similar to those that line the inside of the womb grow in other parts of the body, often causing pain and discomfort in the lower abdomen, particularly when you’re on your period.
How can endometriosis cause infertility?
Endometriosis may impact fertility through various mechanisms. The growths or scar tissue resulting from endometriosis can impede the movement of eggs from the ovaries to the fallopian tubes, hindering fertilization. Hormonal imbalances linked to endometriosis can disrupt the menstrual cycle and ovulation, affecting the release of viable eggs for fertilization. Additionally, inflammation associated with endometriosis can impair the function of sperm and eggs, diminishing the likelihood of conception.
How is holistic treatment for endometriosis different from traditional treatment methods?
To tackle endometriosis, individuals may attempt various approaches such as self-medicating with over-the-counter drugs, resorting to prescribed painkillers, undergoing surgeries to take out the growths, or opting for a hysterectomy in extreme situations. Nevertheless, these treatments often fail to get to the bottom of the endometriosis issue.

Dr. Yuabova’s strategy is focused on uncovering the root health problem behind your endometriosis to ensure you receive the most effective treatment. In the diagnosis process, it’s typical to carry out a functional blood test to check hormone levels and gain insight into your overall body health.

How can you treat endometriosis holistically?
Taking care of endometriosis involves more than just medicine. It includes changes in your daily habits and natural remedies to help your whole body feel better and reduce symptoms. These strategies are there to support the usual medical care by helping you take charge of your health and comfort.

Usually, doctors treat endometriosis by focusing on symptoms, using painkillers, hormones to slow down tissue growth, or surgery to take out the tissue causing pain.

Do appointments have to be in person?
Patients have the flexibility to opt for either telehealth or in-person appointments at our Florida facility. This choice applies to both the initial consultation and any subsequent follow-up visits. In instances where blood work or other tests are required, we will direct you to a nearby functional laboratory equipped to perform the necessary tests.
