Endometriosis

Traditional Chinese Medicine and Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition in which endometrial tissue (the uterine lining that sheds with each monthly period) grows outside the uterus. Endometriosis is among the most common gynaecologic disorders affecting women of reproductive age.

Some common symptoms are painful menstrual periods (dysmenorrhea), irregular or heavy bleeding and possibly, repeated miscarriages. Endometriosis is a major cause of infertility in women.

Treatments found in Western medicine are only temporary and aim to suppress symptoms rather than cure the cause. The drug therapies sometimes used actually decrease the likelihood of becoming pregnant. For example, nafarelin therapy can cause pseudo-menopausal side effects.

With the use of acupuncture and herbal medicine, this condition can be successfully treated safely and without side effects. Acupuncture and herbal medicine improve the chances of conception and carrying a healthy baby to term.
