The Western scientific perspective defines endometriosis as a benign disease in which functional endometrial tissue (interior uterine lining, both glands and stroma) is present outside the uterine cavity. Such tissue can appear on the peritoneal surfaces of organs or sometimes on the ovaries or the broad ligament that supports the ovaries. Reports show it is most commonly found on 10-15% of women 25 to 44 yrs who are actively menstruating. When endometrial glands and stroma are both present as coverings over the ovary, fertility may be decreased due to trapping of the oocyte. Symptoms may include severe pain increasing in severity for 2 to 3 weeks leading up to menstruation. Western treatments use of estrogens, progestogens, Danazol and gonadotropin releasing hormones, all of which have significant side-effects.
From the Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective endometriosis results from Blood stagnation. This type of Blood stagnation arises from Liver stasis and stagnation of Qi, deficiency of Spleen Qi or deficiency of Liver and Kidney Qi. Also cold, dampness and heat can lead to Qi and Blood blockage.
TCM Indication: Painful mass in the lower abdomen caused by Blood stasis, or pain in the lower abdomen without mass, or distention in the lower abdomen with tenderness. In addition there may be menorrhagia with dark color and clots.
