afternoon Doctor …… I am 50 years old, I have endrometrosis cyst already almost 4th. maybe I should have been monopous at the age of 50. Will it stop any periods / monopous if the cyst still exists ????
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Endometriosis is a disease in the reproductive system where uterine tissue grows outside the uterus. Can be in the abdominal cavity, the outside of the uterus, and so forth. This is a problem because the growing tissue is still responding like uterine tissue in general, so that when someone menstruates, this tissue also breaks down and bleeds and causes pain like normal menstruation. That way, the pain felt by sufferers increases. Plus, because it is located outside the uterine cavity, there is a big possibility that there is no way out for the blood from endometriosis to come out until it finally settles.
So far no one knows the exact cause of this condition, but it is usually associated with heredity, have abnormalities in the uterus, have certain conditions that affect the structure of the uterus, have a short menstrual cycle, start menstruation from a young age, experience menopause at an early age older than normal.
Regarding your question, the cessation of menopause will not be affected by the presence or absence of endometriosis. Every woman will definitely go through menopause regardless of whether she has endometriosis or not. It is precisely this menopause that can affect endometriosis. The expert found that endometriosis is also triggered by the hormone estrogen, and in postmenopausal women, estrogen levels are reduced so drastically that endometriosis complaints will decrease, although in some cases it may not disappear completely. Check with your obstetrician for more complete and clear, including to find out what treatment options you have. So, hopefully answering your question.
