Is endometriosis a genetic disease?

Endometriosis is defined as the presence of endometrial tissue in locations outside the endometrial (uterine) cavity. Endometriosis is commonly found in the cul-de-sac (behind the uterus), the rectovaginal septum (the tissue between the rectum and vagina), on the surface of the rectum, the fallopian tubes and ovaries, the uterosacral ligaments, the bladder, and the pelvic side wall. Choosing a good treatment for endometriosis is very important as endometriosis can cause female infertility.



It is not clear whether endometriosis is a genetic disease or not. Studies have shown that sisters have a six times increased risk compared to their husband's sisters. Other studies show up to an eight times increased risk when compared to other women. Affected sisters are more likely to have severe disease than other. Although these studies suggest a genetic basis, presently, the mode of inheritance is unknown.



Endometriosis is a known cause of fertility problems. In fact 30-40% of patients with endometriosis are infertile. This is two to three times the rate of infertility in the general population. Thus, if you are suffering endometriosis, you should look for the treatment for endometriosis soon.



Surgery for endometriosis is common. However, surgery sometimes is not suggested. As you may know, surgery has its risks and side effects. In addition to surgery, herbal treatment for endometriosis is better.



Fuyan Pill is a good herbal treatment for endometriosis. Compared with surgery, it can eradicate this condition and doesn’t have any side effects though it may work slowly. In general, sufferers can recover in three months.
