Endometriosis Pain Treatment
Millions of women suffer from endometriosis, a painful condition that results in endometrium growing outside the uterus. This chronic pain condition does not have a cure, but there are treatment options to control the pain and other symptoms. At CLEAR Wellness Group, we offer effective and innovative endometriosis pain treatment to give our female patients relief, available at our clinic in Chicago.
What Is Endometriosis?
The uterus lining, or endometrium, should stay contained in the uterus. In the case of endometriosis, this specialized tissue can grow in other areas of the body, usually in the reproductive area. This tissue can appear on the fallopian tubes, vaginal area, ovaries and even outside the pelvis area. Endometrium tissue responds to hormonal fluctuations normal in the menstruation cycle, increasing, then breaking down and shedding. When endometrium lesions are outside of the uterus, the shed material can cause inflammation and pain during the menstrual cycle and throughout the month.
The symptoms of endometriosis can vary from patient to patient. Chronic pelvic pain is the most common, but bowel dysfunction, scar tissue formation, infertility and chronic pain in other areas can also occur.
Relieving Endometriosis Pain
There are multiple treatments that can be used to control endometriosis pain and symptoms. Controlling the hormones that stimulate endometrium to enlarge or shed is one of the most common methods for reducing endometriosis pain. Surgery is rarely recommended, as there are less invasive treatment options that can be used to control endometriosis pain.
