Endometriosis Treatment in Hyderabad
Endometriosis is one of the common gynaecological problems affecting thousands of Indian women in their reproductive years. The term “endometriosis” refers to the “endometrium,” a tissue lining the uterus. Women with Endometriosis are indicated by the presence of tissue that resembles the endometrium outside of the uterus.
The risk of infertility among women with Endometriosis is higher.
What Is Endometriosis?
The endometrium is a tissue layer that lines the inner side of a woman’s uterus. But this Endometriosis, also called endometrial implants (cells that look like endometrial cells), grows on the uterus’s outer layer and can be painful. In many cases, the condition may also involve affecting the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and cervical tissue. In rare cases, it can also spread outside the pelvic region.
During this condition, the tissue that grows outside the uterus becomes inflamed and painful. Eventually, the tissue becomes thick, breaks down and starts to bleed during each menstruation. The broken tissue is stuck inside your pelvis because there is no way to leave.
This can result in:
- Endometriomas (Cysts)
- Inflammation of tissues
- Formation of scar tissue
- Adhesions can bind pelvic tissue and other organs
- Menstrual pain that is severe
Periods are a normal part of women’s lives. Excessive pelvic pain during menstruation can be attributed to many factors, and one of them is Endometriosis. Minimal pain is common during periods, but women with this condition experience more pain than usual.

Treatment For Endometriosis
Medication or surgery is generally used to treat Endometriosis. However, the type of treatment depends mostly on how severe the symptoms are. Doctors usually suggest conservative treatment solutions at first. Surgery may be the next step if conservative treatments fail. Pain medications, hormonal therapies, lifestyle changes etc., are the general treatment options for Endometriosis.
But if the patient is planning to undergo IVF, it is suggested to avoid surgical procedures. There are a variety of fertility treatment options for endometriosis patients. For patients with mild to moderate Endometriosis and a healthy ovary, an IUI may be a viable option. If Endometriosis is moderate to severe, or if the ovarian reserves are poor, IVF is advisable. Choosing the right treatment is dependent on the patient’s individual situation.
