Endometriosis is a uterine problem in women. In this, the tissue (tissue) inside the uterus increases and starts to come out and spread. It also spreads to the outer and inner parts of the fallopian tubes and ovaries. This causes severe pain to women. Especially when their monthly cycle comes, then the pain increases.
This tissue is similar to the tissue inside the uterus, but it does not come out at the time of menstrual cycle, due to which pain starts. Fertility in women may also be reduced due to this problem. Let us know why the problem of andriometriosis occurs and how to prevent it.
Due to endometriosis
According to myUpchar, one cause of endometriosis is retrograde menstruation, in which endometrial cells in the blood during menstruation usually do not exit the body, but instead flow back into the pelvic cavity from the fallopian tube. These endometrial cells cling to all pelvic organs and begin bleeding during the menstrual cycle.
The second reason may be the replacement of peritoneal cells, also known as induction theory. There is a possibility of endometriosis due to changes in the peritoneal cells. In this, hormones like estrogen can convert embryonic cells at an early stage.
When any type of surgery is performed, such as a C-section or hysterectomy, endometrial cells may stick to the surgery incision.
One of the biggest reasons can also be weak immune system, due to which the immune system is not able to destroy the endometrial tissues.
How to avoid endometriosis
According to myUpchar, endometriosis in the body is likely due to increased levels of estrogen hormone. But if endometrial problems are occurring then it is difficult to stop, so reducing the estrogen hormones in the body can prevent the possibility of endometriosis.
Actually, the lining of the uterus becomes thick at the time of the estrogen menstrual cycle. For this, the level of estrogen can be reduced through hormonal birth control drugs or contraceptive treatments, but these medicines should not be taken without consulting a doctor.
Exercise regularly can also reduce estrogen hormone levels. Actually, obesity can also be the cause of estrogen hormone increases. In addition, intake of caffeine-rich substances should be reduced. Apart from this, if you have a habit of consuming tea, coffee or any other caffeinated substance, then leave it immediately, because caffeine-rich substances can also increase the level of estrogen hormone in the body.
Apart from this, such women should also take special care of their diet. Exercise must be done for 40 minutes regularly and a diet containing fiber and protein should be taken in the diet. For more information read our article, Endometriosis.
