What Is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a chronic condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows elsewhere around the body - most commonly in the pelvic cavity & around the ovaries.  Endometriosis is clssed as a gynaelogical condition but it can affect every part of the body.  

There are around 175 million women, & people born with the female reproductive system, worldwide & 1.5 million in the UK who have been diagnosed with Endometriosis.  That's 1 in 10 of us - which is as common as Asthma & Type 2 Diabetes.

There has been very little research into Endometriosis and so the reason for it growing is still a bit of a mystery.

In recent years the awareness of Endometriosis has risen & it is now regularly talked about on mainstream television & social media channels.

What Treatments Are Available For People With Endometriosis

It is important to know that there currently isn't a cure for Endometriosis but it can be managed via the following;

  • Laparoscopic Surgery (keyhole surgery) where they either Exise (cut away) or use the ablation method (they use a laser to burn away the lesions).  The gold standard treatment is Exision surgery.

  • Hormonal treatments - this includes medication such as the birth control pill.

  • GnRH Analogues - these are usually given once a month via an injection which puts your body into a medically induced menopause.

  • Pain relief medication.

  • Health & Lifestyle changes - such as diet, exercise & meditation.
