Endometriosis information and locations in Mexico

Endometriosis is a painful condition that affects more than 5 million people and is often mistaken with other conditions like ovarian cysts, abdominal cramping, and irritable bowel syndrome.
Endometriosis is a disorder in which the endometrial-like tissue that normally lines inside of the uterus, grows on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, or outside the uterus, leading to painful periods, infertility, excessive bleeding, and pain during sex.

The endometrial tissue plays a key role during the mensural cycle and pregnancy. Before ovulation, the endometrial lining becomes thicker and enriched with blood so it can host a fertilized egg and support the placenta. If an egg isn’t fertilized, the endometrium lining is shed and expulsed (menstruation).

Treatment for endometriosis

Medication
The first approach of treatment is over-the-counter pain relievers. If you’re not trying to get pregnant, hormone contraceptives or progestin therapy might be recommended as well.
Surgery
Surgery is advised if the medication didn’t help relieve the symptoms or you’re trying to get pregnant. There are two surgical approaches, open or laparoscopic surgery. In both methods, the gynecologist removes the endometrial tissue that grows out of its place. After surgery, you might need to take hormone contraceptives to help alleviate the pain.
