Do You Know The 5 Major Misunderstandings On Endometriosis?

Although it may not be very clear, many women have heard of Endometriosis.  A simple explanation for Endometriosis is that glandular tissue that should normally be placed in the uterine cavity appears in other areas, such as the pelvis, fallopian tubes, ovaries, or intestines.  What is wrong with Endometriosis? Dr. Lee from Wuhan Lee TCM Clinic states:
 
In rare cases, glandular tissue can occur in more strange places, such as the lungs, bladder, or kidneys.  During each menstrual period, these glandular tissues respond to changes in hormones, just like glandular tissues in the uterus.  If the lungs are severely affected, the patient may cough up every month.  Because of tissue ectopic, various problems may occur, such as scar tissue, inflammation, ovarian cysts, painful intercourse, and dysmenorrhea (the most common symptom) that worsens over time.  The degree of pain is not necessarily related to the severity of Endometriosis.  Sometimes, women with the mildest Endometriosis may suffer the most.
 
There are also many misunderstandings about Endometriosis. The following are five common misunderstandings.
 
 
Misconception 1: Endometriosis is the most common among young Caucasians
 
Regardless of age, any woman with menstruation may have Endometriosis.  The number of patients cannot be determined because not every patient will develop symptoms, and many will not be diagnosed with Endometriosis until surgery.  About 30% of patients are diagnosed with Endometriosis because of severe dysmenorrhea that requires surgery.
 
Misconception 2: Endometriosis patients only have pain during menstrual period
 
Scarring and inflammation of Endometriosis can cause pelvic pain in many patients every day.  A study of patients with Endometriosis found that 45% of patients experienced intercourse pain, 29% had intestinal pain, and 69% had pelvic pain, even without menstruation.
 
Misconception 3: Patients with Endometriosis cannot use estrogen after menopause
 
After menopause, patients with Endometriosis can use estrogen to relieve menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness.  The use of estrogen does not cause recurrence of Endometriosis.
 
Misconception 4: Patients with Endometriosis always have a large volume of menstrual blood
 
In fact, large amounts of menstruation are usually associated with Adenomyosis.  Adenomyosis is similar to Endometriosis, and sometimes both may occur simultaneously. With adenomyosis, the glands penetrate into the uterine wall rather than entering the uterus.  Patients with Endometriosis may have excessive or insufficient menstruation.
 
Misconception 5: Patients with Endometriosis usually have infertility
 
Women with Endometriosis do have a risk of infertility, but many patients with Endometriosis have no difficulty getting pregnant.  In fact, many patients don't even know they have the disease.  But if you know you have Endometriosis, the best way to minimize the risk of infertility is to control your menstruation until you are ready for pregnancy.  This means that you may need to continue taking hormonal contraceptives or using an IUD.  Do not stop contraception before preparing for pregnancy.  
 
If you are prepared, but you are not pregnant within a few months, please consult your doctor as soon as possible.  For Endometriosis, Dr.Lee Xiaoping's pure TCM prescription Fuyan Pill can be implemented to promote blood circulation, eliminate phlegm and stasis, and calm the pain.  In addition, because the pure botanical ingredients of Fuyan Pill contain no chemical composition, safe, non-toxic, and non-drug-resistant, it'll be safe for the majority of female patients to take.
