Endometriosis News

There is no cure for endometriosis but there are endometriosis treatment options to keep the pain and other difficulties under control. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) are used to relieve pain during periods. Endometriosis surgery can be used also, as a primary or secondary line of treatment, or sometimes along with medication.

Dutch researchers have recently made a breakthrough that will inhibit the growth of new endometriosis lesions and hope to control the growth of existing lesions. Although the preliminary tests have been successful, the new breakthrough has yet to take shape.

Researchers and doctors from the U.K. have also found a new breakthrough for endometriosis. They claim that endometriosis symptoms could be triggered by an out of control enzyme known as Telomerase which is usually released by the inner lining of the womb during menstruation. For those who are already affected by endometriosis, this enzyme is released at a later stage when it destroys the chances for a woman to become pregnant.

Researchers feel that these breakthroughs could be the stepping stone to the treatment of endometriosis.
