What Is Endometriosis?
Dealing with pelvic pain is never easy and often bad; cramps can derail our entire day! On top of this, an underlying condition like endometriosis can make things much, much worse. This painful condition is characterized by abnormal uterine tissue growth outside of the uterus. When this tissue grows and breaks down during a menstrual cycle, it results in a buildup of blood that has nowhere to go. If left untreated, endometriosis can result in cysts and fertility problems further down the line. While there are surgical treatments available for this issue, some people feel squeamish at the thought of going under the knife. If surgery makes you uncomfortable, our team at Helio Health & Wellness also offers effective BioTe Hormone Replacement services to help alleviate your condition gradually.
What Causes Endometriosis?
Though endometriosis can be quickly recognized by an experienced doctor, determining its cause is not as simple. This condition can develop because of a number of different concerns, such as an immune system disorder, botched surgical scar implantation following a C-section, or other similar surgery. Often, endometriosis is caused by retrograde menstruation. This condition involves the flow of endometrial cells back up through the fallopian tubes and into the pelvic cavity. By visiting Helio Health & Wellness in Austin, you can take the first step toward identifying endometriosis and effectively treating the condition.
How Can Helio Help Me?
Diagnosing endometriosis typically involves a pelvic exam and an ultrasound in some cases. When you visit our center, Dr. Neyman will begin your appointment by discussing and diagnosing your symptoms with a thorough exam. In doing so, she will be able to determine whether your condition is indeed endometriosis or if you’re suffering from a different issue. Once your condition has been confirmed, Dr. Neyman can provide you with hormone therapy to help address any pain you’ve been experiencing. Additionally, she may recommend certain contraceptives, as they can help ease menstrual flow and reduce pelvic pain.
What Are the Results of Treatment?
The prognosis for patients with endometriosis is generally good, with hormone therapy working in 90% of cases. However, this condition has a high rate of recurrence and ongoing treatment may be required. By coming in for your consultation at our center in Austin, you are enlisting Dr. Neyman as your ongoing medical support specialist in the treatment of this condition. During the course of your treatment, she will get to know you and your specific needs while adjusting her approach if necessary to help you maintain your optimal wellness.
