An intrauterine device, or IUD, can help some people manage the symptoms of endometriosis. Learn about how it works and the possible side effects in this article.
ConclusionsOur in vitro data suggest that application of GSI may be a worthwhile approach in the treatment of endometriosis that warrants further investigation.

ConclusionQualitative research has the potential to reveal and explain several aspects of CPP in women. The medical community may better accept knowledge gained from these studies if the methods are described more transparently in published articles.
Conclusion: Korean women with endometriosis had lower total serum 25(OH)D concentrations than controls. Neither serum VDBP concentrations nor polymorphisms in the gene coding for VDBP were associated with endometriosis. Further studies are needed to investigate the pathophysiology and clinical implications of 25(OH)D and VDBP in endometriosis. PMID: 31405270 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Hormonal replacement therapy (HRT) is effective in treating the symptoms of menopause. Endometriosis is defined as the presence of functional endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity with a tendency towards invasion and infiltration. Being an estrogen-dependent disease, it tends to regress after menopause. Nevertheless, it affects up to 2.2% of postmenopausal women. Conclusive data are not available in the literature on the appropriateness of HRT in women with endometriosis or a past history of the disease. The hypothesis that exogenous estrogen stimulation could reactivate endometriotic foci has bee...
ConclusionsGreater likelihood of hospitalization in the ART, MAR, and unassisted subfertile groups is largely explained by admissions for conditions associated with subfertility.
ConclusionsWe did not find any specific metabolomic signature of endometriosis in the follicular fluid of women undergoing IVF. These results suggest that there is no micro-environmental impairment of the COC in cases of isolated endometriosis among women with infertility.
