Endometriosis is a serious condition that affects up to one third of women struggling with infertility. Period pain is the main symptom for the majority of sufferers however, it is not an indicator of the severity of the disease with around one quarter of women experiencing no pain whatsoever.
The only definitive method of diagnosis is with a surgical laparoscopy, which is why many women are only diagnosed after they have not been able to fall pregnant.
Western medicine currently has no cure for endometriosis and treatment is one of symptom control, typically, through the use of the Oral Contraceptive Pill (OCP) to control and reduce menstrual bleeding.
Our treatment consists of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, nutritional guidance and lifestyle shifts and aims to reduce inflammation associated with endometriosis. These treatment protocols can often significantly reduce the signs and symptoms of endometriosis and minimise its reoccurence whilst improving fertility outcomes.
If possible, we like to treat women soon after surgical removal of endometriosis lesions to help reduce the chances of regrowth. We can also refer you to our trusted network of specialists who are the most experienced at this delicate surgery.
