Endometriosis can bring about lower abdominal pain, dysmenorrhea, infertility, abnormal menstruation, etc. It can be a great threat to women's health. Many women could possibly have heard about that birth control pills have certain therapeutic effects on endometriosis, and you must wonder that is certainly it true?

Endometriosis is often a hormone-dependent disease, while women are in postmenopausal, ectopic endometrial lesions can gradually atrophy and absorb. Pregnancy or usage of sex hormones also can inhibit ovarian function to temporarily stop the aggravation of the disease.

The using birth control pills can reduce the estrogen levels through progesterone components, then inhibit the expansion of endometrium and ectopic endometrium in patients with endometriosis, causing endometrial atrophy and reduced volume.

At present, the clinical using low-dose and high-efficiency progesterone ethinylestradiol compound preparation is 1 tablet each day for 6-9 months, well suited for patients with mild endometriosis.

Therefore, it's utilized to treat dysfunctional uterine bleeding and endometrial hyperplasia, and are often used as drugs prior to the carried out hysteroscopy or for treatment.

Similarly, prolonged usage of oral birth control pills can result in endocrine disorders, fatness, spots, acne, edema and also other negative effects as a result of hormone-regulating effects, and might cause liver and kidney damage. Therefore, patients can not be helped by it for some time. And Why?

Secondly, Similarly, prolonged utilization of oral birth control pills can bring about endocrine disorders, fatness, spots, acne, edema along with other side effects due to the hormone regulating effects, and might cause liver and kidney damage. If the patient really wants to recover, other treatments with fewer unwanted side effects can be viewed.

The management of endometriosis is primarily split into chemical medicine, surgery, and natural medicine. However, due to the concerns of drug resistance and side results of chemical medicine, as well as the large trauma in the operation to women's bodies and the recurrence rate is high.

Therefore, most with the patients choose more conservative treatment such as natural medicine Fuyan Pill, which can be based on promoting circulation and removing blood stasis, together with its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effects, it could eliminate heat and toxic material, which can not only alleviate dysmenorrhea symptoms, but in addition directly attain the lesion, diseases may be thoroughly treated, and patients' resistance can also be enhanced.

In fact, there are not simply patients who use birth control pills to help remedy endometriosis, and also some acne patients who feel that it could treat acne. Here it is reminded that drug treatment ought to be determined by your own personal symptoms and scenarios, do not blindly use the drugs to cause irreversible consequences.
