      Diagnosis and treatment for endometriosis

      Diagnosis and treatment for endometriosis

      While the symptoms are enough to confirm the condition of endometriosis, diagnostic laparoscopy is the only method to confirm the condition. As the name suggests, it is performed using a laparoscope, a tiny catheter-like instrument with a camera and lens on its end. 

      The treatment for endometriosis can be classified into non-surgical and surgical methods.

      Non-surgical treatment for endometriosis

      If the condition is nascent, endometriosis can be managed through contraceptives and painkillers. Contraceptive pills help halt ovulation through hormonal control. When ovulation stops, the endometrium lining stops growing, providing the body a resting period. The resting period allows the body to heal and gradually absorb the microscopic blood deposits to help control the pain and cluster symptoms. 

      Alternatively, the doctor may also suggest hormonal therapy. Hormonal medicines, however, are a short-term treatment and should not be continued for a long time. 

      Surgical treatment for endometriosis

      Treatment for endometriosis involves both- Ovarian Cystectomy/ Hysterectomy. Each can be performed in either of the two ways-

      1. Laparoscopy: This is a neo-modern method where the surgery is performed through a laparoscope, a catheter-like instrument with a camera and light on its end. The method is minimally invasive and promises quicker recovery with reduced chances of risk or complications.
      2. Open cut method: As the name suggests, it is an open cut incision and stitch method. It is comparatively more invasive and needs more recovery time post-surgery.
