Treatment of endometriosis

What is endometriosis?

The lining of the womb is called endometrium; if endometrial-type tissue is found outside the womb it is called endometriosis. Endometriosis is most commonly found in the pelvis notably on the ovaries and behind the uterus (Figure 23.2). It can involve the bowel and urinary tract. The diagnosis is confirmed by direct visualisation usually by laparoscopy. There is a very large spectrum in the severity of endometriosis: It may consist of no more than a few tiny spots or at the other extreme, there may be extensive disease with cysts filled with a chocolate-like material and scar tissue around the pelvis.

In its wider sense, infertility refers to couples who are having difficulty achieving parenthood and would, therefore, include pregnancy problems such as recurrent miscarriage.

The central theme of biology is reproduction, and for those unfortunate couples who have difficulty achieving parenthood there may be feelings including anxiety, frustration and despair.

Primary infertility usually refers to patients with no histor...

Vaginal Tightening

This is a surgical operation whereby the vagina is tightened up by thinning out or reducing the soft tissues and tightening the vaginal muscles.

Why does my vagina feel loose or wide?

This may be due to giving birth to one or several children. The vaginal muscles and ligaments become weakened and start to sag. This leaves the bladder, bowel and womb (uterus) so unsupported that they can literally begin to push through the vaginal wall. This leads to problems with the body’s ability to pass urine and stools.

A widened vagina may be age-related. As you get older, your body’s muscles begin to slacken and lose their elasticity...

Sexual Health

What is Sexual Health?
Being healthy is about feeling good physically, mentally and emotionally. Being sexually healthy means that we avoid infections, illnesses and take responsibility to ensure that we protect ourselves and others, emotionally and physically.
In this way, sexual health is an important and integral part of overall health. When we are sexually healthy we make the best decisions for us that we can with regard to our sexual partners and sexual practice.
For people who choose to be sexually active, sex can be enjoyable, safe and should based on mutual respect and agreement.

  • Equality and mutual respect
  • To negotiate with your sexual partner(s) to ensure that the sex you have is the sex you want
  • Protecting yourself...
