Endometriosis and Treatment
What is Endometriosis? - Research By KL Kuala Lumpur Acupuncture Herbal Herbs Medicine Treatment
Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue (endometrium) normally lining the womb (or uterus) grows on different organs outside the uterus.
If the endometrium grows within the muscular layer of the womb it is called adenomyosis, which is just a different type of endometriosis.
The commonest areas to be affected are:
Ovaries where cysts might appear; these are called chocolate cysts because they contain brown material.
Area behind the womb and in front of the rectum (large bowel). This space is called the Pouch of Douglas and endometriosis here often causes deep pain and painful intercourse (dyspareunia).
less common sites include the bowel itself, the bladder and sites outside the pelvis including the navel or operation scars.
Like normal endometrial, the endometriosis tissue undergoes monthly changes according to the hormonal cycle and typically causes painful periods (dysmenorrheal).
Endometriosis is a very common condition affecting up to 10 per cent of women between 16 and 50 years of age, often without producing any symptoms. Endometriosis tissue is under hormonal influence so it is almost never seen in children or postmenopausal women.
It appears as small blackish-blue nodules on the external lining of the ovaries or elsewhere in the pelvis. In some cases it may lead to the formation of cysts filled with altered blood, known as chocolate cysts.
Endometriosis may cause discomfort or mild to severe pain during a period (dysmenorrheal), with many sufferers experiencing chronic pain. Sexual intercourse can be painful, and women with chocolate cysts may have a feeling of fullness in the lower parts of their stomach.
