Endometriosis usually occurs in women of reproduction age. The disease not only causes pain but also seriously affects the fertility of the woman, if there is no early treatment can lead to infertility.
1. What is endometriosis?
Endometriosis is one of the most common diseases in females. The disease occurs when the cellular tissues of the endouracy escape from the uterus and develop on other muscles such as the ovaries, the outer wall of the uterus, the ovate, the ligaments that support the uterus, the rectum and the bladder. In rare cases, they can spread out of the abdomen and grow on other bodies, such as the lungs .
Like normal uterus tissues, these abnormally developed tissues also peel off and cause bleeding during the menstrual cycle. However, because they escaped and developed in other tissues, the blood could not flow outside the body but flow back inside. This has irritated the surrounding tissues, causing cysts, scarring and the sis of body tissues. It can lead to infertility.
2. Risk factors for endometriosis
Currently, medicine has not yet reached an accurate conclusion about the causes of endometriosis in women. However, we can consider some of the following factors:
- Reflux of menstruation:
This can be considered the most common cause of endometriosis. In the menstrual blood of women containing endometrial cells, instead of going outside the body when it comes to menstruation, they tend to flow back inwards through the ovulation and pelvic cavity. At that time, these "stray" cells will stick to the pelvic wall and the surface of the pelvic organs, continuing to act like other normal cellular tissues (thickening and causing menstrual bleeding).
- Embryonic cell transformation:
Embryonic cells growth and transformation have stimulated the growth and formation of lining cells in the abdominal cavity and pelvic area, which in turn leads to endometriosis.
- Surgical scars:
Scars left after surgery, such as cesarean section or cesarean section, can cause endometrial cells to stick to the incision and lead to endometriosis.
- The movement of endometrial cells:
It is also considered another cause of endometriosis. The movement of endometrial cells occurs when they are taken by tissue or blood vessels to other bodies in the body.
- Immune system problems:
Endometriosis can occur when the body's immune system is experiencing certain problems. This limits the body's ability to recognize and remove growing cell tissues outside the uterus.
- Genetic trends:
Some studies have in turns out that endometriosis tends to be heredity in the family. If you have relatives (grandmother, mother, aunt, sister, sister) who have endometriosis, there is a high risk that you will also suffer from the disease. Moreover, endometrial cells may also have pre-formed on the outside of the uterus from the time you are in the womb.
- Some other risk factors:
Here are some factors that can increase the risk of endometriosis in women:
- History of pelvic inflammation
- Never had a baby.
- Menstruation before the age of 12
- Uterus or vagina of abnormal shape
- Due to Dioxin Industrial Chemicals
