Did you know? Acupuncture could be an effective treatment for Endometriosis and may relieve pain.
Endometriosis is a condition in Which Cells Similar to Those in the ENDOMETRIUM, the layer of tissue that normally covers the inside of the Uterus, grow OUTSIDE of it. Is an often painful disorder in which tissue similar to the tissue that normally lines the inside of your endometrium grows outside your uterus. Because this tissue has no way to exit your body, it becomes trapped. When endometriosis involves the ovaries, cysts called endometriosis may form.
Endometriomas may be considered the most serious threat to a woman’s reproductive potential. Involves destroying all of the healthy ovarian tissue, leading to premature or early ovarian failure, problems with ovulation, and decreased ovarian function.
Endometriosis is estimated to affect over one million women (estimates range from 3% to 18% of women) in the United States and it is one of the leading causes of pelvic pain.
However, most cases of endometriosis are diagnosed in women aged 25 to 35 years. This rare in postmenopausal women. Endometriosis can cause pain, especially during menstrual periods. Fertility problems also may develop.
