The good news is that there are treatment options available. At Horizons Health & Wellness, Dr. Angela Aslami and the rest of our team proudly provide GYN services to the wonderful women of Massachusetts. If you are struggling with pelvic pain due to endometriosis, we can give you the relief you seek.
What Is Endometriosis?
Endometriosis occurs when the tissue lining the inside of your uterus appears on the outside of your uterus. This phenomenon can have several causes but is most often caused by retrograde menstruation or hormonal issues. Retrograde menstruation happens when the menstrual blood containing endometrial cells flows back through the fallopian tubes and into the pelvic cavity. Once the blood flows back, the endometrial cells stick to the pelvic walls and surfaces of pelvic organs. Over time, these cells grow, thicken, and bleed, making menstrual symptoms more severe.
Is Endometriosis a Serious Concern?
The main problems associated with this condition are pelvic pain and heavy periods. Along with these immediate concerns, this problem can also lower your fertility rate. Studies show that roughly one-third of women with this condition have a difficult time conceiving. Moreover, women who have this problem may be at a greater risk of developing uterine and ovarian cancer in their lifetime. For these reasons, it is essential to diagnose and treat this condition early. If you are experiencing symptoms suspicious for endometriosis, we welcome you to get in touch with our Bridgewater center today.
What Can We Do About Endometriosis?
