Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a complex disorder which can cause a number of disturbing and stressful symptoms and can disrupt the ability to concieve naturally in many various ways. Depending on where the endometriosis is situated it can effect the function of the fallopian tubes to smoothly transfer the oocyte from the ovaries to the fallopian tube and down into the uterus. It can cause excrutiating pain that incapacitates the woman who suffers from this problem during her menstral time.It can have far reaching effects on her own self esteem and upon her relationship with her husband or partner and in the way she sees herself as a woman. Endometriosis is seen in chinese medicine as blood stasis in the lower jiao or reproductive organs and this stagnation needs to be cleared to enable the return to normal function of the ovaries , tubes and uterus, once this has been achieved conception may follow readily with out any further problems, having said that, this can be a disorder that can take some time to eliminate completely, and restore the menstrual cycle to its normal function , I always recommend that a woman visit her Gyneacologist for advice before starting treatments. .
