How Long The Menstrual Cycle Can Return To Normal After Endometriosis Therapy?
Tapros contains leuprorelin which is an analog of the Gn-RH hormone. Research conducted on humans shows that giving this hormone can cause atrophy (shrinkage) of ectopic endometrial tissue (endometriosis). Tapros can be used for endometriosis of the reproductive organs and outside the reproductive organs. Gn-RH (gonadotropin releasing hormone) stimulates the release of FSH and LH which play a role in the process of fertility and menstruation of women. Tapros occupies a place in the receptor that should be occupied by Gn-RH so that the function of Gn-RH decreases.
Maximum length of tapros administration is 6 months. Subsequent endometriosis therapy may not use the same drug. Tapros is usually injected on the 5th day of the menstrual cycle. The next dose is given 1 month from the first injection or there are also preparations given every 3 months. Which means the effect of the drug lasts in this duration.
Endometriosis can cause fertility problems in women up to 30-50%. However, pregnancy is still possible. To get pregnant, you need a good egg, fallopian tubes / tubes that are patent / no blockage, and also a good condition of the uterus. If, endometriosis does not clog the tube (the place of fertilization) or the former operation does not cause scarring in the tube, fertilization and pregnancy are still very likely to occur. Pregnancy itself, will cause an increase in the hormone progesterone, which is thought to cause shrinkage of the endometriosis tissue. Consideration for getting pregnant soon is because of this.
However, if endometriosis tissue cannot be completely removed by surgery and there is still tissue that clogs the tubes, the administration of tapros aims to eliminate as much of the remaining endometriosis tissue as possible so as to create an "environment" that supports pregnancy. That is also what the doctor may consider first.
Doxycycline antibiotics and also tapros itself should not be given while pregnant. Doxycycline antibiotics are categorized as pregnancy safety D from the FDA. Which means that from research found positive evidence about the risks to the human fetus, giving is only allowed if the magnitude of the benefits obtained may be greater than the risk, for example to overcome life-threatening situations. Therefore it is necessary to be sure that you are pregnant or not before starting the treatment.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
