Diagnosis and Treatment of Endometriosis

Diagnosis and Treatment of Endometriosis at Chawla IVF Centre

At Chawla IVF Centre, we understand that endometriosis can be a challenging and painful condition, often contributing to infertility. Our expert team is dedicated to providing comprehensive and compassionate care, using the latest advancements in medical technology to diagnose and treat endometriosis effectively.

Understanding Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining inside the uterus (the endometrium) grows outside the uterus. This can cause chronic pain, heavy periods, and infertility. Endometriosis most commonly affects the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the tissue lining the pelvis.

Symptoms of Endometriosis

Common symptoms include:
- Severe menstrual cramps
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Pain during or after intercourse
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Infertility
- Pain with bowel movements or urination, especially during menstrual periods

Our Diagnostic Approach

Diagnosing endometriosis can be complex, as symptoms often overlap with other conditions. At Chawla IVF Centre, we employ a thorough diagnostic process that includes:

1. Medical History and Physical Examination
A detailed medical history and pelvic examination help us understand your symptoms and identify any abnormalities.

2. Imaging Tests
We utilize advanced imaging techniques such as transvaginal ultrasound and MRI to visualize any endometrial growths or cysts.

3. Laparoscopy
Laparoscopy is the gold standard for diagnosing endometriosis. This minimally invasive procedure allows us to directly view and assess the extent of endometrial tissue in the pelvis. During the procedure, a small camera (laparoscope) is inserted through a tiny incision in the abdomen.

Treatment Options

Treatment for endometriosis at Chawla IVF Centre is personalized to each patient, considering the severity of the condition and the patient’s desire for fertility. Our treatment options include:

Pain Relief: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to manage pain.
Hormonal Therapy: Birth control pills, GnRH agonists, progestins, and other hormonal treatments to reduce or eliminate menstruation, thus slowing endometrial growth.

2. Laparoscopic Surgery
For those with moderate to severe endometriosis or those who have not responded to medication, laparoscopic surgery can be both diagnostic and therapeutic. Procedures include:
Excision or Ablation: Removing or destroying endometrial tissue and adhesions to alleviate pain and improve fertility.
Cyst Removal: For endometriomas (ovarian cysts caused by endometriosis), laparoscopic cystectomy is performed to remove these cysts while preserving ovarian tissue.

3. Assisted Reproductive Techniques (ART)
For patients experiencing infertility, we offer advanced reproductive technologies such as:
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF): IVF can be an effective option for those struggling to conceive due to endometriosis. Our team tailors each IVF cycle to maximize success rates.
