Can Endometriosis Make You Fat?

Endometriosis does not directly make you fat. Women with endometriosis experience dysmenorrhea during menstruation, resulting in loss of appetite and irritability. Appropriate symptomatic treatment should be given. When necessary, patients need to take painkillers for treatment, which is conducive to relieving dysmenorrhea.

 
 
But if a woman has endometriosis, it will lead to menstrual and endocrine disorders. Weight gain may occur due to a rich diet and lack of exercise.
 
If you choose to take hormone drugs after suffering from endometriosis, it will lead to weight gain under the stimulation of hormone drugs. The drug treatment of endometriosis can choose progesterone preparations, not the so-called glucocorticoids. After taking glucocorticoids, women may have obvious obesity, full moon face, and buffalo back.
 
Some patients gain weight after taking hormonal drugs. However, weight gain is generally stopped after the drug is stopped, and patients can appropriately control their weight by strengthening exercise during the drug period.
 
What are the clinical manifestations of endometriosis?
 
The most common clinical symptoms of endometriosis are pain, infertility, pelvic mass, and menstrual abnormalities. Among them, the pain has the following four characteristics: the progressive aggravation of dysmenorrhea, which can be manifested as taking painkillers every month when menstruation comes, non-menstrual abdominal pain, sexual intercourse pain, and anal falling pain.
 
About 30%-40% of patients with endometriosis are infertile. The causes of infertility caused by endometriosis are very complex, and some may be due to abnormal pelvic structures and blocked fallopian tubes. Some are ovulatory dysfunction. Menstrual abnormalities in endometriosis are mainly manifested as prolonged menstrual periods and intermenstrual bleeding.
 
In addition to the above common clinical symptoms, there are other rare symptoms such as blood in the stool, painful stool, hematuria, dysuria, hemoptysis, and periodic non-uterine bleeding similar to the menstrual cycle. In addition, nearly 25% of patients were asymptomatic.
 
When people find endometriosis, they should be treated in time. Therefore, mild endometriosis needs to be given symptomatic and conservative treatment. The commonly used drugs are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which can achieve the effect of pain relief. Oral short-acting contraceptives and progestins can inhibit the growth of endometriotic cells.
 
If patients are worried that taking some hormone drugs for a long time will make them gain weight, they can choose Fuyan Pill. It belongs to traditional Chinese medicine and has no side effects if taken for a long time. It can alleviate the symptoms of patients and effectively cure endometriosis.
 
In life, patients with endometriosis are advised to:
 
1. Having a regular schedule and avoiding staying up late.
 
2. Keeping warm. Patients with endometriosis are often accompanied by dysmenorrhea, most of which is related to coldness. It is recommended to eat fewer cold drinks and eat fewer cold fruits.
 
3. Eating less food containing estrogen. Endometriosis is a hormone-dependent disease, so patients should try to eat less food containing estrogen, such as royal jelly.
 
4. Balanced diet. It is recommended that women keep their weight within the standard range, as being too thin or too fat will affect their health.
 
5. Appropriate exercise. Endometriosis is associated with anxiety and depression. Exercise can improve anxiety and depression. It is recommended to do aerobic exercise for at least 30 minutes at least once a week. If the body mass index exceeds the standard, do it for more than 30 minutes 2-3 times a week.
 
6. Avoid strenuous exercise and intercourse during menstruation. Strenuous exercise and intercourse will cause the backflow of menstrual blood, and the shed endometrium can enter the pelvic cavity along the fallopian tube with the backflow of menstrual blood, resulting in pelvic endometriosis.
