Uterine fibroids are lumps that grow on your uterus. You can have fibroids on the inside, on the outside, or in the wall of the uterus. Your doctor may call them fibroid tumours, leiomyomas, or myomas. But fibroids are not cancer. You do not need to do anything about them unless they are causing problems.
Treatment of Fibroids
- Small, asymptomatic Fibroids do not need treatment, a regular follow up with ultrasound is all that is needed in these patients.
- Treatments like Laparoscopy Myomectomy/hysteroscopy, Myomectomy, Gross wedging’s of the uterus or laparoscopic Hysterectomy can all be offered to the patients and the correct treatment is chosen according the reproductive needs of the patients.
A laparoscopic hysterectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove the uterus. A small incision is made in the belly button and a tiny camera is inserted. The surgeon watches the image from this camera on a TV screen and performs the operative procedure. Two or three other tiny incisions are made in the lower abdomen. Specialized instruments are inserted and used for the removal process.
Some women do not have their ovaries removed when they undergo a hysterectomy. If the ovaries stay inside, the woman does not need to take any hormones after the surgery and she does not have hot flashes. Some women remove their ovaries because of family history of ovarian cancer or they have an abnormal growth on their ovary.
Endometriosis can be treated with medications and/or surgery. The goals of endometriosis treatment may include pain relief and/or enhancement of fertility. Since endometriosis occurs during the reproductive years, many of the available medical treatments for endometriosis rely on the interruption of the normal cyclical hormone production by the ovaries. These medications include GnRH analogy, oral contraceptive pills, and progestins. But if the above fail patients are advised to undergo Laparoscopy.
Laparoscopic Treatment of Endometriosis
Laparoscopy is the gold standard for the diagnosis of endometriosis i.e. the diagnosis of endometriosis is confirmed by laparoscopy.
Laparoscopy in infertility related to Endometriosis
The adhesions (bands of tissue that make organs stick together) are separated at laparoscopy and Endometriomas (Blood filled endometriotic ovarian cysts) are treated and the normal uterine, tubal and ovarian relationship established, any endometriotic deposits found in the pelvis are also removed. Based on the diagnosis of a “Sandwich Therapy” in cases of severe endometriosis.
Laparoscopy in Chronic Pelvic Pain
All the endometriotic deposits are removed to release the pain in endometriosis by laparoscopy. Also DIE (Deeply Infiltrating Endometriosis) like recto vaginal Endometriosis is completely removed for pain relief at laparoscopy.
If you have completed menopause — gone without a period for more than one year — you should not experience any menstrual bleeding. Even a little spotting is not normal after menopause. If you have postmenopausal bleeding, make an appointment to see your doctor as soon as possible. It could be caused by a number of health problems, some of which are serious.
Treatment depends on what is causing the bleeding. If polyps are to blame, surgery may be needed to remove them. Endometrial atrophy can be treated with medication alone; endometrial hyperplasia may be treated with medication, such as progestin or progesterone therapy, and/or surgery to remove thickened areas of the endometrium. If you have endometrial hyperplasia, you will need to see your doctor on a regular basis for monitoring.
