Practical Methods To Effectively Control & Overcome
Symptoms Of Endo Once & For All - Guaranteed
There are many different cell types in your body that are all basically the same, yet they are specialized to perform the various tasks associated with that area of your body. For example, stomach cells are tough and undergo rapid regeneration in order to keep stomach acid from leaking into the rest of your body. Another type of cell is the one that grows in the uterus, or endometrium. When these cells migrate outside the uterus, they can cause health issues and infertility in a condition called endometriosis.
The cells of the endometrium are meant to be shed every month with the menstrual period. This allows the lining of the uterus to remain fresh and ready for implantation of a fertilized egg, should you be trying to get pregnant. However, when these cells migrate out of the uterus, it causes endometriosis. Endometriosis can happen when the cells back up the fallopian tubes or move down into the vagina. They can spread and implant in the fallopian tubes and vagina as well as ovaries, outside of uterus and intestines, bladder, cervix, and other places inside the pelvic cavity.
While retrograde menstruation, or the backing up of endometrial cells through the fallopian tubes, is one possible cause of endometriosis, doctors aren't really sure of the exact reason why this condition occurs. Another theory is that there are primitive cells throughout the pelvic area and abdominal cavity that are able to develop into other, more specialized cell types. If they mutate into endometrial cells, you can develop endometriosis.
In some cases, doctors believe that surgery can accidentally transfer endometrial cells to other parts of your body. Things like caesarean sections and episiotomies can serve as a source of the transfer. When endometrial cells appear in places like the brain and other places far from your pelvic area, it is possible that they are carried by the bloodstream or the lymphatic system.
Lastly, there is a chance that problems with a woman's immune system can allow endometrial cells to grow outside of the uterus. Normally, the immune system is responsible for keeping the specialized cells in their respective places. When something goes wrong with the immune system, it can allow the cells to grow in places that typically do not have endometrial cells.
The symptoms of endometriosis include infertility, spotting, painful periods, and strong cramps, among other things. If you develop endometriosis during pregnancy, it is difficult to carry the child full term. Once you get to delivery, it can cause complications during labor. Thus, doctors should be aware of your condition and ready to act accordingly in order to help your baby.
When doctors fail to act skillfully and carefully during delivery, it can result in birth injury to your child. If your baby has suffered from a birth injury due to the medical staff's negligence, you should contact a birth injury attorney from Lowenthal & Abrams PC, today.
