Endometriosis Treatment Options in Tustin, CA

Hormone Replacement Therapy for Endometriosis  Tustin, CA

Endometriosis is a painful condition which affects many women. It is characterized by the growth of endometrial tissue (which lines the inside of the uterus) on the outside of the uterus. This tissue can become trapped within a woman’s body during menstruation and cause irritation, scarring and cysts.

Other symptoms of endometriosis include:

Unfortunately, a cure for endometriosis has yet to be found. However, early detection and treatment can prevent further growth and irritation. Treatments for endometriosis typically involve increasing the levels of hormones [[crosslink:'bioidentical-estrogen','estrogen' and [[crosslink:'bioidentical-progesterone','progesterone', as both are heavily involved in a woman’s menstrual cycle.

Treatment of Endometriosis with Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) uses synthetic hormones to slow the progression of endometriosis. These hormones are often delivered into the body via pills, patches, creams, gels or injections. This form of treatment has long been popular with those suffering from endometriosis, although its side effects are worth noting. Because the hormones administered during HRT are synthetic, only a fraction of the full dosage is accepted by the body for use. The remaining synthetics may potentially increase the risk of heart attacks and certain forms of cancer. Fortunately, a safer alternative may exist.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) – A Safer Alternative

The hormones administered in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) are chemically identical to those naturally produced by the body. Because of this, almost all of the bioidentical hormones introduced are used, leaving nothing behind to cause damage to the body. Because almost all the hormones administered in BHRT are used, this treatment option has shown to be far more effective as well.

A common method for administering BHRT is using hormone pellet therapy. A pellet no larger than a grain of rice is injected into the muscles. It is made of pure bioidentical hormones. Over time, this pellet dissolves, dispersing the hormones throughout the body. The reason this method of BHRT treatment is so popular is likely because fewer treatments are needed over the course of a year.

Many women have found relief from endometriosis symptoms with BHRT. It has shown to be a safe and highly effective method of slowing the progression of this painful condition.
