Endometriosis treatment in Dubai

Overview

Endometriosis is a prevalent gynaecological condition that affects women of reproductive age. It is a chronic disorder mostly found in women who are infertile (25% to 50%) and in women who have persistent pelvic discomfort (75% to 80%). Endometriosis is most commonly diagnosed in women over the age of 27, but it can develop in teens as well.

What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis occurs when tissue that lines a woman’s uterus grows outside the uterus. This abnormal tissue growth can develop on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterine exterior surface, pelvic cavity lining, vagina, cervix, vulva, bladder, or rectum.

This tissue behaves similarly to typical uterine tissue throughout your period, breaking apart and bleeding toward the conclusion of the cycle. However, this blood has nowhere to go. Affected parts may become irritated or swollen. As a result, scar tissue and lesions may also develop. Contact Dr. Mustafa Aldam if you are seeking for the best endometriosis treatment in Dubai.

Causes of Endometriosis

Although the real cause of Endometriosis is unclear, there are some theories:

  • Small portions of the uterine lining (endometrium) shed during menstruation may travel backward down the fallopian tubes. These portions may flow back toward the ovaries into the abdominal cavity rather than flowing through the vagina.
  • Endometrium cells (endometrial cells) can move to another region via blood or lymphatic arteries.
  • Endometrial cells can develop from cells outside the uterus.

How does Endometriosis affect fertility?

Endometriosis can hinder pregnancy because of the following reasons:

  • Endometrial tissues get wrapped around the ovaries and block the eggs from releasing
  • These tissues block sperms’ way to the fallopian tube
  • Endometriosis can stop a fertilized egg from sliding down the fallopian tube towards the uterus.

Diagnosis of Endometriosis

For an apt diagnosis, our gyne expert Dr. Mustafa Aldam carries out various tests according to your symptoms. Here are a few of them:

Pelvic exam

A pelvic exam helps the doctor to feel cysts or scars (if any) behind your uterus.

Imaging tests

Imaging tests, such as an ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI, can produce comprehensive images of your organs and identify the tissue growth properly.

Laparoscopy

In this test, our doctor will make a small incision in your abdomen and insert a thin tube with a camera at the end (called a laparoscope). This will enable him to comprehend the size and location of the lesions.

Biopsy

This method requires our doctor to collect tissue samples, usually during a laparoscopy. After this, a specialist examines them under a microscope to confirm the diagnosis.

Endometriosis Treatment in Dubai

Although endometriosis doesn’t have a definite cure, medication and surgery are the two best lines of treatment. It is recommended that you consult our gynecologist and seek his expert advice to see which one works out best for you.

Pain Medication – Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may be prescribed to relieve the pain.

Hormonal Therapy – Hormones like birth control pills, Gonadotropin, Progestin-only contraceptives, and Danazol help control inflammation, cyst formation and scarring.

Surgery – Surgery can aid maximum removal of affected tissues elevating your chances of getting pregnant. The procedure could be a laparoscopic or standard surgery. In some extreme cases, a hysterectomy might be required to remove your ovaries, cervix or uterus.

Lifestyle changes

Eat healthily – Lower your diet on meat and include more fruits and vegetables in your meals. Avoid alcohol and caffeine.

Exercise regularly – Exercise stimulates your heart to pump blood to all of your organs. It improves circulation and promotes the entire system’s transfer of nutrients and oxygen.
