Endometriosis is a common gynecological disease in women, which is caused by the implantation of active endometrial cells outside the endometrium. Endometrial cells are supposed to grow in the uterine cavity, however, because the uterus is connected with the pelvis through the fallopian tube, endometrial cells can enter the pelvic through the fallopian tube and grow heterotopically.
Endometriosis is one of the most common chronic diseases in gynecology.
The recurrence rate of Endometriosis is as high as 40-50%, even exceeding the recurrence rate of cancer. It can not be completely cured by a certain treatment, so patients need long-term and comprehensive management and treatment.
So, for endometriosis with such a high recurrence rate, how can we detect and see a doctor in time to prevent deterioration? What are the clinical manifestations and symptoms?
Generally speaking, there are dysmenorrhea, abnormal menstruation, infertility, pain during sexual intercourse, and other special symptoms, such as some patients who get endometriosis in the bladder, there are often periodic frequency of urination, urinary pain, and hematuria. For patients who has abdominal scar and umbilical endometriosis, they will suffer from periodic local mass and pain.
And patients with intestinal endometriosis may suffer from abdominal pain, diarrhea or constipation, or even periodic small amounts of hematochezia. When the ectopic endometrium invades and oppresses the ureter, one side of lower back pain and hematuria may occur, but this situation is very rare.
These are some clinical manifestations and symptoms of endometriosis, but these symptoms are not specific, such as common endometrial thickening and adenomyosis, these symptoms can also occur.
After examination, patients who are diagnosed as endometriosis, especially those with severe dysmenorrhea or fertility requirements, it is necessary for them to take positive and effective treatment.
Then what are the treatment options when women are diagnosed with endometriosis?
First, conservative treatment: According to the clinical manifestations combined with examination, patients can be treated by rational drug use, but years of clinical data shows that the conservative treatment effect is not good, most patients still need to take surgical treatment.
Second, surgical treatment: Surgery is the main method to treat endometriosis. Surgery can be divided into open surgery and minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery. If it is necessary, doctors can operate the laparoscopy combined with hysteroscopy surgery.
But in fact, conservative treatment is less complicated, after all, surgical treatment for patients is suffering and painful.
Drug therapy can be divided into:
(1) Pseudopregnancy therapy, which uses progesterone drugs for a long period of time in a larger dose, which has to last for at least six months before it can produce a therapeutic effect.
(2) Pseudomenopause therapy, dunazole is a derivative of androgen, which has better effect, but also has greater side effects.
The above two chemical treatment methods take a long time and have great side effects. So, how about using conservative natural herbal treatment?
Natural medicine generally has two advantages: zero drug resistance and no side effects. For example, Fuyan Pill, which is mainly composed of Poria cocos, Scutellaria baicalensis, Gardenia jasminoides, yam, safflower, liquorice, honeysuckle and so on, it has the functions of clearing away heat and detoxification, activating blood circulation, eliminating the pathological changes of gynecological tissues, regulating menstruation, allevating pain and so on, and treating female infertility which is caused by gynecological diseases.
