Removing Pelvic Adhesions
Pelvic adhesions are a common side effect of pelvic surgery, and can have a dramatic impact on a woman’s health and fertility, yet many women know nothing about them, and many young gynaecologists do not have the skills to perform reconstructive pelvic surgery. Surgical NaProTechnology has its focus on this type of surgery, and does not cause adhesions itself.
In this day and age, most women aren’t aware that something as “simple” as a laparoscopy to remove an ovarian cyst can cause scarring, which can result in Pelvic Adhesive Disease. Any pelvic surgery, including C-sections, can also result in this disease. It is not emphasized among the listed side effects of the surgery, yet surgery in this area is the leading cause of Pelvic Adhesive Disease.
Other causes of Pelvic Adhesive Disease include endometriosis and pelvic infections. The later has causes ranging from STDs, post surgery infection, and appendicitis.
Adhesions can bind organs together and cause infertility. Inflammation to the pelvic area, caused by surgery or infection, can cause the slippery surfaces of the organs in the pelvis to become inflamed, which can cause scarring. If the scars form between two organs, the organs can stick together.
Pelvic adhesions can cause infertility by blocking the ends of the fallopian tubes so that sperm cannot enter the tube, or block the tubes so that even if a sperm can get to and fertilize an egg, the embryo cannot get through to the uterus. Ovulation may be prevented if there is scarring on the ovaries, and implantation if there is scarring within the uterus.
Other Effects from pelvic adhesions can include chronic pelvic pain, painful intercourse, problems with pregnancy and the birthing process, and other long term health effects.
A woman may know within hours that she has developed adhesions, or they can remain silent and asymptomatic for years.
Reproductive endocrinologist training programs began originally focusing on pelvic reconstruction surgery, attempting to resolve problems such as Pelvic Adhesive Disease. In 1978, though, when the first IVF baby was born, the training programs shifted the focus specifically to skills necessary for IVF, and many younger reproductive endocrinologists now do not have the training for pelvic reconstruction.
Surgical NaProTechnology is a specialized form of gynaecologic surgery which has its focus on reconstructive pelvic surgery. Its aim is to reconstruct the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries to eliminate Pelvic Adhesive Disease, and it does so without leaving adhesions itself.
Surgical NaProTechnology offers women a way to combat Pelvic Adhesive Disease, and this can have a positive impact on pelvic pain, infertility and pregnancy problems. It is specifically focused on reconstructing the pelvis to eliminate pelvic adhesions. If you think you have, or have been diagnosed with pelvic adhesions, consider Surgical NaProTechnology as the best way to clear the adhesions.
