Endometriosis Treatment in Karol Bagh, Delhi

The tissue within your uterus is called the endometrium. When this tissue is found in areas other than your uterus, this condition is called endometriosis.

It may be found in your ovaries, fallopian tubes and the tissue lining your pelvis. This tissue mimics your endometrial tissue and goes through the same changes during your menstrual cycle. However, as there is no place for it to be shed, it gets trapped. This may result in pain, irritation of our tissues, scar tissue, and adhesion formation (abnormal fibrous tissue which causes your pelvic organs to stick to each other).

Endometriosis may also lead to infertility issues. Treatment may be required for endometriosis, depending on its severity.

What are the causes of endometriosis?

The exact cause of endometriosis is unknown. However, a few theories, as mentioned below, have been put forth to explain how it is caused.

  • One of the theories suggests that during menstruation, there may be some backflow of tissue which goes back up into the fallopian tubes where it gets attached and continues to grow.
  • Another proposes that the endometrial tissue spreads the same way as cancer spreads. In this case, it may utilize blood or lymphatic channels to spread from the uterus to other pelvic organs.
  • A third theory advocates that cells which may be located in any place can convert into endometrial cells.
  • Endometriosis may also occur due to direct transplantation of abdominal tissue after a Cesarean section.
  • Certain families may also carry a genetic factor that puts them at risk of developing endometriosis.
