At Womens Health Group Chicago, we take a comprehensive approach to managing endometriosis pain. We understand that chronic pelvic pain can significantly undermine your quality of life and psychological wellbeing. Our personalized care program incorporates both medicinal treatments like NSAIDs, analgesics and alternative therapies like acupuncture, massage and relaxation techniques to effectively manage the symptoms and complications associated with this condition.
Endometriosis is largely known as an estrogen-dependent disease due to its important role in promoting the growth of endometrial cells outside the uterus. At Womens Health Group Chicago, our experts use cutting-edge hormonal therapies aimed at reducing or halting estrogen production hence slowing endometrial tissue growth. Depending on your specific needs, these may include hormonal contraceptives, progestin therapy or Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (Gn-RH) agonists and antagonists among others.
When medication isn’t enough, we turn to minimally invasive surgeries such as laparoscopy. This surgical procedure produces less scarring, has shorter recovery time but provides full diagnostic capabilities compared to traditional open abdominal surgery. Our skilled surgeons gently remove patches of endometriosis from their roots while preserving fertility whenever possible thus giving you much-needed relief from debilitating symptoms.
Endometriosis can have profound effects on female fertility by causing damage or blockage in tubes, preventing fertilization from taking place. But getting diagnosed doesn’t mean you cannot become a parent! With advanced reproductive technologies available at Womens Health Group Chicago like IVF protocols specially tailored for ladies with endo or intrauterine insemination (IUI), many women with endometriosis have successfully achieved pregnancy.
Women suffering from endometriosis often have overly tight pelvic muscles, ultimately leading to chronic pelvic pain. Our physical therapists provide one-on-one, hands-on Pelvic floor therapy that focuses on relaxing these tense muscles and strengthening the surrounding ones hence reducing discomfort. So you can return to your day-to-day activities without having constant worries of persistent pelvic pains.
Research indicates that certain dietary changes could help manage symptoms of endometriosis. At Womens Health Group Chicago, our registered dietitians will work with you to develop a personalized nutrition plan aimed at reducing inflammation and promoting hormonal balance in the body-forming part of an integrative approach towards managing this disease.
