Rules For Taking Medication For Endometriosis Sufferers?
Hello. I want to ask, yesterday I checked with the obstetrician because it hurts during menstruation. And the doctor said I have endometriosis. And he prescribed 20 point azol and taken 1 × 1, but I was just told to check up again next month. So I want to ask, if given 20 items which means for 20 days while I was told to check up again only next month. Azol is definitely not enough, my question is, for 10 days before the check up, do I really not need to take azol or can I buy it myself for the remaining 10 days before the check up? Yesterday I forgot to ask the doctor, because I was shocked. Thank you for your answer

Endometriosis is a disorder in which tissue from the inner lining of the uterus (endometrium) grows in an improper place, for example in the service, vagina, fallopian tubes, ovaries, or in the pelvic cavity. Clinically, sufferers of this disease will experience a variety of complaints, such as:
Abnormal menstrual bleeding (can be irregular cycles, excessive bleeding, menstrual blood black or lumpy, prolonged menstruation, etc.) Severe pain during menstruation, can be felt around the lower abdomen, genitals, pelvis, until back pain during intercourse sexual Post-sexual bleeding Fertility disorders Other complaints, such as weakness, frequent fatigue, diarrhea, constipation, bloating, nausea, etc. It is not clear what causes this condition. However, several factors, such as reversed menstrual blood flow, changes in perimetrium cells or embryonic cells, impaired immunity, to migration of endometrial cells through blood vessels or lymphatics are strongly suspected to be the triggers.

In connection with your question, Azol (which contains danazol) is one alternative treatment that can be given to people with endometriosis.

Consumption of this drug should be done regularly balanced with lifestyle modifications as described above. These drugs are not included in the class of over-the-counter medicines so you can buy them independently without a doctor's prescription. Therefore, you should follow your doctor's instructions to consume these drugs regularly. Also make lifestyle modifications as we explained above.
