Abnormal bleeding and pelvic pain are common results of endometriosis. This condition can lead to a lot of complications including severe menstrual periods and long-term fertility issues. Fortunately, there are treatment options and they are readily available here at Cohen Medical Practice. Our NYC team is staffed by a caring group of medical professionals who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of uterine issues. If you are experiencing an unusual amount of pelvic pain and long for a solution, we can help determine if endometriosis is the cause and provide effective treatment options.
What Are The Causes?
Endometriosis occurs when the tissue lining the inside of your uterus appears on the outside of your uterus. This phenomenon can have several causes, but is most often the result of retrograde menstruation or hormonal issues.
Retrograde menstruation is when menstrual blood containing endometrial cells flows back through the fallopian tubes and into the pelvic cavity. These endometrial cells stick to the pelvic walls and surfaces of pelvic organs, where they grow, thicken, and bleed over the course of each menstrual cycle.
Is Endometriosis a Major Issue?
The major issue arising from this concern is a lowered fertility rate. Approximately one-third of women with this condition have a difficult time conceiving. Moreover, those who have this condition may be at a greater risk of developing cervical cancer in their lifetime. For these and other reasons, it is essential to diagnose and treat this condition early.
How Do We Address This Concern?
At Cohen Medical Practice, we provide a range of treatment and diagnostic options to help identify and address your condition. In most cases, hormone replacement therapy can serve as an effective treatment for this condition. If you have already been diagnosed, we can offer birth control services and fertility counseling to help you become pregnant and carry your baby to term.
