    The transitivity and recurrence makes endometriosis stubborn
    antonellamessi posted:
    Generally speaking, symptoms of endometriosis are obvious. Once suffering from endometriosis, patients can experience secondary dysmenorrhea , dyspareunia, abdominal pain, menstrual disorders, infertility and so on. All these symptoms brings great adverse effects to the patients' health and lives. Therefore,aggressive treatment is necessary.

    However, for diffuse endometriosis, the lesions are difficult to be completely cut off, so the disease easily relapses after the surgery. According to clinical data, almost 35% to 65% patients have suffered a recurrent endometriosis within 1 to 5 years after the surgery. This recurrence rate is rather high. Therefore, to prevent the high recurrence rate, patients need take extra drugs that can inhibit the growth of residual lesions. For example, patients can take a herbal medicine named fuyan pill.

    Fuyan pill treatment:In fact, for patients in mild cases or with fertility requirements, patients can directly take fuyan pill to get a cure. According to the theories of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), endometriosis can be described by the traditional Chinese category as blood stasis syndrome with formation of abdominal lumps. Blood stasis is a condition where small vessels are not capable of carrying normal blood flow. It is believed to be the cause of severe pain and should be responsible for many cases of excessive menstrual bleeding and infertility. Therefore, to treat endometriosis, TCM gives priority to blood stasis and resolve lumps.
