Pain Relief - Tried & Proven Endometriosis Pain Relief Treatments


Visitors: 289

Endometriosis is a painful disease that affects 5.5 million women in the United States and Canada. Endometriosis occurs when the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside the uterus, typically in the abdomen, fallopian tubes, bowels, ovaries, and lining of the pelvis.

The tissue develops into painful growths and adhesions, which respond the same way normal uterus tissue responds during menstrual periods—it breaks down and bleeds. However, this blood has no exit points, so inflammation occurs, therefore leading to pain. So, many women constantly seek solutions to endometriosis pain relief because the condition is extremely painful.

Some of the symptoms of endometriosis include:

  • Lower back and abdominal pain
  • Pain during intercourse, bowel movements, or urination
  • Excessive bleeding and pain during menstrual periods
  • Infertility, or the inability to become pregnant

    Tried & Proven Endometriosis Pain Relief Treatments

    There is no cure for endometriosis. However, a variety of successful endometriosis pain relief treatment options do exist. The severity of the disease, age, and your plans for future pregnancy will determine which endometriosis pain relief method will work best for you.

  • Pain Medication. Doctors may prescribe over-the-counter painkillers, such as ibuprofen (Advil), naproxen sodium (Aleve) or acetaminophen (Tylenol) for mild endometriosis pain relief. If the pain continues or worsens, stronger prescription drugs may be prescribed. Clinically proven topical non-addictive solutions on the market such as Menastil have proven very effective in providing pain relief.

  • Hormonal Therapy. Hormonal therapy has proven time and time again to be a very successful option for endometriosis pain relief. Different hormones can be used, such as oral contraceptives (estrogen and progesterone in combination), Gonadotropin-releasing hormones (GnRH analogs), progesterone drugs, and danazol (a weak male hormone).

  • Surgery. In some severe cases, surgery may be necessary in order to receive endometriosis pain relief. Conservative surgery options can remove growths resulting in endometriosis pain relief; however, for women who experience debilitating pain, radical surgery may be needed. A hysterectomy will remove endometriosis-ridden ovaries to finally offer endometriosis pain relief. ALWAYS get a 2nd and 3rd opinion before you move forward with this option.

  • Alternative Medicine. Such as certain herbs, acupressure, and aromatherapy have proven to provide varying degrees of endometriosis pain relief. You will need to experiment to find the right concoction for your particular level of pain.

    If you experience any of the symptoms of endometriosis, visit your doctor immediately. There are plenty of endometriosis pain relief options that can help you cope with your endometriosis pain.
