Understanding and relieving endometriosis

Endometriosis is a common gynecological disease that affects more than 10% of women.

It is characterized by the presence, outside the uterine cavity, of tissue similar to that of the lining of the uterus (called endometrium).

Endometriosis is a disease defined by the presence, outside the uterus, of mucosal fragments uterine (endometrium) or "endometrial tissue",
including glands and stroma (tissue used to support, protect and connect the nerves, blood and lymphatic vessels it contains).
Endometriosis lesions have the same characteristics as the uterine lining.
In particular, they are sensitive to the action of ovarian hormones (estrogen). This is why endometriosis is referred to as an "estrogen-dependent disease".

Endometriosis thus manifests itself in women of childbearing age (i.e. during the period of genital activity), sometimes as early as adolescence. It is a chronic disease that regresses at menopause .

Endometriosis is only treated for pain, infertility or endometrioma (cyst).

Treatment of endometriosis is not straightforward because of frequent recurrence a few months after stopping treatment (pain often returns between 6 and 12 months after treatment).

Treatment with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may reduce pain. When endometriosis lesions are sensitive to hormones, treatments that lower estrogen (anti-estrogens) are used to reduce endometrial bleeding and regress lesions.

This may include combined oral contraceptives[012754 012755 012751] [012754 + progestin) or progestin-only[012754 012755 012755] [][] [][][012754 012755] for this purpose. This first option, often associated with NSAIDs, fails, however, in more than one in five cases.

Danazol (a testosterone-like hormone that blocks the activity of estrogen and progesterone) or GnRHGnRH (monthly injection) which suppress menstruation are sometimes used in endometriosis but are not devoid of side effects, including bone (up to 13% loss of bone density in six months in some studies).

In some cases, surgery is proposed (and sometimes the uterus and the ovaries are removed). The procedure has the advantage of remove painful lesions and permanently remove discomfort.
The interest of the operation is nevertheless questionable in the case of small disseminated lesions or when there is an unfavorable risk/benefit ratio, with, for example, a risk of incontinence.

The average rate of recurrence after surgery is about 20% at 5 years.
