Are Contraceptives Useful for Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is one of the gynecological diseases with a high incidence at present, which will cause many adverse effects on the health and daily life of patients. Is it helpful to take contraceptives for endometriosis?


Due to the hormonal nature of oral contraceptives, long-term use can cause endocrine disorders in patients and side effects such as obesity, stains, acne, edema, etc. It may even cause liver and kidney damage in patients. However, some patients believe contraceptives have a particular therapeutic effect on endometriosis. Many people are puzzled about it. Is that true?



Are contraceptives useful for endometriosis?


Due to the estrogen dependence of endometriosis, it has been discovered that the progesterone component in oral contraceptives can inhibit the patient’s estrogen secretion, which is why patients with endometriosis can take contraceptive pills to be treated.


Patients with endometriosis taking contraceptives can reduce their estrogen levels through the progesterone component and then inhibit the growth of the endometrium and ectopic endometrium. Oral contraceptives can relieve the symptoms of endometriosis, such as dysmenorrhea and heavy menstruation in patients with endometriosis, and have a particular control effect on the condition of endometriosis itself in a short time.


When women have endometriosis, oral contraceptives can be used for treatment. During female treatment with contraceptives, menstruation will generally stop. Endometriosis is mainly due to the peeling of the displaced endometrium during the menstrual period, which will lead to dysmenorrhea. Menstruation will not come after amenorrhea, so it will not cause dysmenorrhea, which will play a role in treating endometriosis.


Women taking contraceptives to treat endometriosis are generally aimed at severe endometriosis. To reduce the progression of the disease before surgery, menopausal women take a palliative treatment method to reduce surgery. For example, medication such as the herbal medicine Fuyan Pill is a good conservative choice. If the endometriosis is severe or the female is younger, it is best to use surgery for treatment.



Why cannot women be treated with contraceptives for a long time?


The contraceptives treatment method is not suitable for long-term use by patients with endometriosis. Because these drugs cannot remove the endometriosis nodules in the pelvic cavity and ovaries from the root cause, they can only temporarily relieve and control the endometriosis. The effect of curing endometriosis is not achieved.


The radical cure of endometriosis can choose herbal medicine Fuyan Pill, which can remove the nodules of the endometriosis lesion, promote blood circulation and remove blood stasis, and diuresis and relieves leaching.


Due to the hormonal nature of oral contraceptives, long-term use can cause endocrine disorders, obesity, stains, acne, edema, and other side effects. It may even cause liver and kidney damage in patients.



The dangers of endometriosis


1. Ectopic pregnancy


Ectopic endometrium can cause pelvic adhesions, fallopian tube dysfunction, and fertilized eggs can only be planted and developed locally, leading to an increased probability of ectopic pregnancy.


2. Abnormal menstruation


Patients with endometriosis often have shortened menstrual cycles, increased menstrual flow, or prolonged menstrual periods, indicating that the patients have ovarian dysfunction. Irregular menstruation can be used as a diagnostic reference, but it is of no value in the differential diagnosis.


3. Infertility


Pelvic masses often cause adhesions, blocked fallopian tubes, poor development of follicles, or ovulation disorders due to lesions. Once pregnant, the ectopic endometrium is suppressed and atrophied, which is a good treatment for endometriosis. In chronic cases, some are caused by endometriosis.


4. Dysmenorrhea


The clinical feature of endometriosis is progressive dysmenorrhea, which is a common and prominent feature. It is primarily secondary, that is, since the occurrence of endometriosis, the patient complains that there is no pain during menstrual cramps in the past, but certain dysmenorrhea begins to occur during the period, which can occur before, during, and after menstruation.
