Endometrial tissue can locate itself in the pelvic cavity outside of the uterus. If it is found inside the fallopian tubes or around the ovaries it can place a hindrance on conception. The tissue itself can also hinder fertility by attracting macrophage cells sent to clear away foreign material; endometriosis activates these macrophages to work harder and faster which destroy any sperm in the fallopian tubes before it has a chance to meet the egg.
Acupuncture and TCM works to break up blood stasis to clear away the excess tissue deposits but to also diagnose and treat the underlying cause of the disease so it does not recur. Fertility thus becomes greatly enhanced once the condition improves.
If you experience very painful periods, pain during intercourse and/or blood-spotting between periods, a form of endometriosis may be present. If you are trying for a baby, it is advisable to address this and start treatment as soon as possible.
