What is Endometriosis?
Endometriosis is the condition that results from the appearance of the endometrial tissue outside the uterus, which causes pelvic pain especially, associated with menstruation. When endometriosis involves ovaries, cysts then it is called endometriomas. In rare cases, it spreads outside the pelvis. It is one of the common gynecological problems in females.
According to Ayurveda, the three humors present in the body are Vata, Pitta and kapha. If they are in balanced form, then the person is healthy and if they get aggravated or imbalanced in the body then person will become unhealthy. The endometriosis is caused due to the aggravation of all the three doshas, but especially vata and kapha dosha. It displaces the endometrial tissue from their actual location in uterus to outside. Pain or inflammation in the pelvis region and hormonal imbalance occurs due to the aggravation of the vata dosha. Overgrowth of the endometrial cells occurs due to the aggravation of the kapha dosha.
What are the Signs and Symptoms of the Endometriosis?
The signs and symptoms of the endometriosis are as follows:
- Dysmenorrhea (Painful periods): Pelvic pain and cramping starts a few days before the menstrual period and may also include lower back and abdominal pain.
- Pain during Intercourse: Pain during or after sex due to the endometriosis.

Some women with mild endometriosis have extensive pain, while others with advanced endometriosis may have little pain or even have no pain.
What are the Causes of the Endometriosis?
The causes of the endometriosis are as follows:
- Retrograde menstruation: Menstrual blood containing endometrial cells flows back through the fallopian tube into the pelvic cavity instead out of the body. These displaced endometrial cells stick to the pelvic walls and the surface of the organs, where they grow and thicken and bleed in each menstrual cycle.
- Embryonic cell growth: When one or more small areas of the abdominal lining, turn into endometrial tissue, endometriosis develops.
- Surgical scar implantation: After Caesarian or hysterectomy, there may be the chances of development of endometrial cells. Hence it leads to the endometriosis.
