Endometriosis

Endometriosis Treatment London | Kent UK

This causes pre period pains, infertility and painful sex. The treatment can be either medical or surgical. The problem is that medical treatment causes post menopausal side effects (hot flushes, dry vagina, mood changes etc.) as the ovaries are temporarily switched off. In 1997 it was shown that after minimal access (laparoscopy) treatment of mild to minimal endometriosis the pregnancy rate was 30.7% at 9 months post surgery as compared with 17.7% at the same time in the untreated group {Reference Number3}. Similar studies have shown little value in medical treatment, as the woman does not release any eggs for approximately 6 months duration of treatment. This is time wasted in attempting to become pregnant. The only advantage of medical treatment is in very severe cases, as by reducing the complexity of the condition it makes definitive surgery easier and therefore safer.
