What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a serious health problem where tissue that’s meant to line the uterus ends up growing outside of it. This often leads to a significant amount of pain, unusual bleeding, and challenges with fertility. The areas often impacted include the ovaries and other parts around the uterus.

While it’s uncertain what exactly causes endometriosis, possibilities may involve hormone-related factors, a family history of the condition, an improper immune response, infections, or menstrual blood moving backwards.

A holistic approach to the treatment of endometriosis can enhance life quality and potentially reduce or completely alleviate the symptoms one may experience.


Endometriosis Symptoms

Endometriosis symptoms vary widely and may include the following. While some individuals may manifest all of these symptoms, others may only exhibit a portion of them.
  • 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 generally involves a thorough medical history review, physical examination (including pelvic exam), and medical imaging. In some cases, a laparoscopy may be conducted, wherein a slender tube is inserted into the abdomen to directly observe the uterus. If necessary, tissue samples may be collected.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes endometriosis pain?
The pain associated with endometriosis arises from the proliferation of endometrial cells outside the uterus, causing inflammation, scarring, and adhesions in the pelvic region, particularly during menstruation.
How can endometriosis cause infertility?
Endometriosis can contribute to infertility through multiple pathways. The growths or scar tissue formed by endometriosis may obstruct the transportation of eggs from the ovaries to the fallopian tubes, hampering fertilization. Hormonal imbalances associated with endometriosis might disrupt the menstrual cycle and ovulation, making it difficult for viable eggs to be released for fertilization. Moreover, inflammation triggered by endometriosis can compromise the function of sperm and eggs, reducing the chances of conception.
How is holistic treatment for endometriosis different from traditional treatment methods?
Many with endometriosis turn to common pharmacy remedies, pain prescriptions, removal surgeries for the tissue, or complete uterus removal in serious cases to manage their condition. These strategies, however, often miss the real cause.

Dr. Yuabova focuses on diagnosing the actual condition causing your endometriosis to find the correct treatment approach. Part of this careful evaluation usually involves a blood test to check hormones and understand your body’s functioning.

How can you treat endometriosis holistically?
Looking after endometriosis comprehensively involves making changes to how you live and seeking out natural healing methods, as well as following your doctor’s advice. These additional actions help the usual medical treatments by focusing on feeling good overall and reducing the discomfort that comes with the condition.

In mainstream medicine, the focus on endometriosis is often to treat the symptoms as they happen. This means medications are given for pain or hormone therapy to lessen tissue overgrowth, and sometimes surgery is done to remove the problematic tissue.

Do appointments have to be in person?
At our Nevada practice, patients can select between telehealth or in-person appointments. This choice encompasses both the initial consultation and any follow-up appointments. In the event that blood work or other testing is required, we will arrange for you to visit a nearby functional lab capable of conducting the necessary tests.
