What is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)?
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a hormonal imbalance that causes the ovaries to malfunction and is the most common hormonal disorder in women. The classic signs are a long or irregular cycle.
What is endometriosis?
This is a condition where cells from within the uterus move and implant themselves in other locations. When the cells take up their new location they continue to be hormonally responsive. Some women experience no symptoms; others suffer severe menstrual cramps and painful intercourse. This condition is often associated with infertility.
What are pelvic adhesions?
Pelvic adhesions are a type of scar tissue, which can form as a result of a number of insults to the pelvic organs. Common causes of pelvic adhesions include endometriosis and pelvic infection. In addition to these, any surgery on the pelvic organs has an associated risk of adhesion formation. These adhesions can be the cause of severe pelvic pain, although most of the time women with this problem have no symptoms. It can also be related to infertility by obstructing the fallopian tubes or impairing their function.
What are uterine fibroids?
Uterine fibroids develop from the smooth muscular tissue of the uterus. These benign growths often appear during child-bearing years and can interfere with normal menstrual function creating a situation of excessively heavy menstrual periods (menorrhagia). The fibroids can develop in positions that can affect the normal functioning of the uterus and fallopian tubes.
