Endometriosis treatment is available from various herbal remedies. A chronic, progressive disease in women, this is a condition where the cells that line the uterus grow outside of the uterus. These cells bind to estrogen and progesterone, promoting uterine growth and thickening. The cells, implanted in structures and organs outside the uterus, cause scarring and bleeding. It can interfere with fertility and the ability to become pregnant. It can also cause severe pelvic pain, especially during a woman's monthly flow.
The primary symptom of endometriosis is menstrual pain either before, during or just after their period, located in the pelvic region. Pain may also occur in areas that the endometrial cells have implanted, like the intestine or bladder. Severity of pain varies. Other symptoms include fatigue, joint and muscle aches, bloating, nausea, dizziness, headaches, heavy menstrual bleeding, sleep disturbances, and depression. Women with endometriosis may also experience low back pain, pain during or after sexual intercourse, pain with bowel movements and premenstrual spotting.
The causes of endometriosis are not understood. Symptoms vary from woman to woman and it can be difficult to diagnose. It occurs in women of all ages from age 8 to over 75, although the majority of sufferers are between 25 and 29 years of age. It is most common in Asian women, then Caucasian women.
Women who are at higher risk for endometriosis will have a shorter cycle than normal, heavier and longer periods and a family history of the disease. They may have uterine abnormalities and associated medical conditions. They may have autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis or multiple sclerosis. They may also have diseases like hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, allergies, asthma or migraine headaches.
