What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a condition where tissue, similar to what normally lines the uterus, starts growing where it shouldn’t, like on the ovaries or other parts of the pelvic area. This can result in severe pain, unusual bleeding patterns, and it may interfere with a woman’s ability to have children.

The root of endometriosis isn’t fully understood. It might be related to the body’s hormone levels, genetics, an abnormal reaction by the immune system, infection by parasites, or menstruation going in the reverse direction.

Approaching endometriosis with comprehensive care can help control symptoms and make life more comfortable for those affected.


Endometriosis Symptoms

Endometriosis is characterized by numerous symptoms, which can include those listed below. While some individuals may exhibit all of these symptoms, others may only have a few.
  • 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?

Diagnosing endometriosis usually involves a comprehensive review of medical history, physical assessment (including pelvic examination), and medical imaging. Sometimes, a laparoscopy is utilized, wherein a thin tube is inserted into the abdomen to directly inspect the uterus. Tissue samples may also be procured if necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes endometriosis pain?
When cells like the ones in the lining of the womb are found elsewhere, it’s called endometriosis. This can result in swelling, scars, and sticky tissues in the pelvic region, usually hurting more during menstrual cycles.
How can endometriosis cause infertility?
Endometriosis can affect fertility in several ways. The growths or scar tissue formed by endometriosis may obstruct the passage of eggs from the ovaries to the fallopian tubes, thereby complicating fertilization. Hormonal irregularities associated with endometriosis might disrupt the menstrual cycle and ovulation, hindering the release of viable eggs for fertilization. Furthermore, inflammation caused 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?
When facing endometriosis, many seek relief through everyday drugstore medicines, doctor-prescribed analgesics, surgical procedures to remove abnormal tissue, or, in serious cases, surgery to remove the uterus. But, many times, these options don’t tackle the fundamental cause of the problem.

Dr. Yuabova concentrates on finding the key health issues causing your endometriosis to choose the best treatment plan. Usually, analyzing a blood sample is part of this process, which helps understand your hormonal balance and overall bodily function.

How can you treat endometriosis holistically?
Handling endometriosis in a holistic way means introducing lifestyle improvements and using nature-based treatments together with regular medical care. The goal is to aid conventional treatments with active steps toward good health, aiming for better overall health and easing symptoms.

Normally, endometriosis is managed medically with a focus on immediate symptom treatment—this could mean taking drugs for pain relief, hormone treatments to control tissue growth, or surgery to remove bothersome tissue.

Do appointments have to be in person?
At our New York location, patients can choose between telehealth or in-person appointments. This flexibility extends to both the initial consultation and any subsequent follow-up sessions. If blood work or additional testing is necessary, we will refer you to a nearby functional lab for the required tests.
