Endometriosis refers to the presence of endometrial tissue outside the body of the uterus, also known as endometriosis. Ectopic endometrium can occur in any part of the body, such as umbilical cord, bladder, kidney, ureter, lung, pleura, breast, even arms, thighs and so on, but most of them are located in pelvic organs and parietal peritoneum. Ovarian and uterosacral ligaments are the most common, followed by the uterus and another visceral peritoneum, vaginal rectal diaphragm, and other parts.
Endometriosis is the causes of fertility in most women, once endometriosis occurs, it must be treated in time. Endometriosis can lead to lower abdominal pain, dysmenorrhea, infertility, abnormal menstruation and so on. It is a great threat to women's health. Many women may have heard of that birth control pills have certain therapeutic effects on endometriosis, and you must wonder that is it true?
Endometriosis is a hormone-dependent disease, so when women are in postmenopausal, ectopic endometrial lesions can gradually atrophy and absorb. Pregnancy or the use of sex hormones can also inhibit ovarian function to temporarily prevent the aggravation of the disease.
The use of birth control pills can reduce the estrogen levels through progesterone components, and then inhibit the growth of endometrium and ectopic endometrium in patients with endometriosis, resulting in endometrial atrophy and reduced volume. Oral birth control pills can also alleviate the symptoms of endometriosis such as dysmenorrhea and heavy menstrual flow, and improve the condition of endometriosis in a short time.
At present, the clinical use of low-dose and high-efficiency progesterone ethinylestradiol compound preparation is 1 tablet per day for 6-9 months, suitable for patients with mild endometriosis.
The progesterone effects of compound oral birth control pills include the secretion of glandular epithelium from hyperplasia to secretion, interstitial edema, and decidua degeneration, it can gradually atrophy the endometrium. Therefore, it is often used to treat dysfunctional uterine bleeding and endometrial hyperplasia, and are often used as drugs before the diagnosis of hysteroscopy or for treatment.
Similarly, prolonged use of oral birth control pills can lead to endocrine disorders, fatness, spots, acne, edema and other side effects due to the hormone regulating effects, and may even cause liver and kidney damage. Therefore, patients can't be treated with it for a long time. And Why?
Firstly, because these drugs can not remove the lesions of endometriosis in pelvis and ovaries fundamentally, they can only temporarily alleviate and control the condition of endometriosis temporarily, and can not achieve the effect of the cure.
Secondly, Similarly, prolonged use of oral birth control pills can lead to endocrine disorders, fatness, spots, acne, edema and other side effects due to the hormone regulating effects, and may even cause liver and kidney damage. If the patient wants to recover, other treatments with fewer side effects can be considered.
The treatment of endometriosis is mainly divided into chemical medicine, surgery, and natural medicine. However, due to the concerns of drug tolerance and drug resistance of chemical medicine, and the large trauma of the operation to women's bodies and the recurrence rate is very high.
Therefore, most of the patients choose more conservative treatment such as natural medicine Fuyan Pill, which is based on promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis, together with its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effects, it can clear away heat and toxic material, which can not only alleviate dysmenorrhea symptoms, but also directly reach the lesion, diseases can be thoroughly treated, and patients' resistance can also be enhanced.
In fact, there are not only patients who use birth control pills to treat endometriosis, but also some acne patients who believe that it can treat acne. Here it is reminded that drug treatment should be depending on your own symptoms and conditions, do not blindly use the drugs to cause irreversible consequences.
