How is Endometriosis Diagnosed?
Endometriosis is a disorder that part of tissue in the internal lining of the uterus grow outside of the uterus. The uterus is an organ within a woman's abdomen where a fertilized egg implants and where a developing baby is nourished and grows. These misplaced endometrial tissue can cause pain and irregular bleeding and affect a woman's ability to become pregnant. Thus it is crucial to diagnose the endometriosis. But as all we know, endometriosis is not easy to be diagnosed.There are several reasons why endometriosis is hard to spot:
1.The symptoms vary in women.
2.Some women have no symptoms at all.
3.Some other illnesses have the same symptoms as endometriosis. Many girls and women go to the doctor because they have painful periods. Only about half of them turn out to have endometriosis.
4.There's no simple test for endometriosis. You need to have a type of surgery for doctors to know for certain whether you have endometriosis. It's called laparoscopy. Then a surgeon will look inside your body using a small camera.
5.If you have painful periods but no other symptoms, your doctor may recommend that you try treatments such as painkillers or contraceptive pill before choosing to have a laparoscopy. If the treatment works, you may not need to have a laparoscopy.
But what if you haven't had surgery? Or if you are a young girl just starting her menses? How do you diagnose it then? The experts suggest that: for the women in the bearing age, they should do the gynecological examination every year periodically, by which we can find some gynecological diseases with no evident symptoms. And if you have symptoms such as painful lower abdomen, dysmenorrhea, painful intercourse and infertility, you should go to hospital to check in time. If the doctor touches that there are nodules in the pelvic cavity or inactive cystic masses around the uterus, it can be diagnosed as endometriosis preliminarily. For doing farther diagnosis, patients should have a laparoscopy to diagnose the endometriosis.
If you are indeed diagnosed with endometriosis, you should treat it immediately. We suggest you to use traditional Chinese medicine to treat it. You can take Fuyan Pill to treat it. This medicine is invented by Wuhan Dr.Lee, who has about 30 years of treating experience. and it is made purely of traditional Chinese herbal. You can achieve the best effect if you use it continually for 3 to 4 months.
