Managing Chronic Reproductive Diseases

We know it sometimes doesn’t take much for the reproductive system to get off track. Even the slightest hormonal imbalance can leave you feeling and functioning less than optimally. These are signs you don’t want to ignore. Comprehensive Wellness Care can help you understand the changes you are experiencing and is dedicated to educating patients on the best treatments, designed for the individual.  

What Are the Most Common Reproductive Diseases?

Here are some of the signs and symptoms of common reproductive diseases in women.


Endometriosis occurs when the endometrial lining of the uterus begins to grow outside the uterus, such as the ovaries or pelvic region. As hormones fluctuate during a woman’s cycle, this leads to tissue inflammation and intense pelvic pain. Signs of endometriosis include,

  • Painful periods
  • Pain with intercourse
  • Heavy menstrual cycle
  • Painful bowel movements or pain with urination during menstruation
  • Infertility
  • Scar tissue

While there is currently no cure for endometriosis, there are ways for Comprehensive Wellness Care to treat it with pain medications, hormone therapy or surgical treatments.

Uterine Fibroids

Fibroids are typically benign masses that grow in and around the uterine wall. While professionals don’t yet know why some women develop fibroids, they are more common in African-American women and overweight women. Fibroids can develop without any symptoms, however, some women experience:

  • Painful, heavy periods
  • Intense bloating, especially around their period
  • Lower back pain
  • Frequent urination
  • Pain with sex
  • Infertility, miscarriages and other reproductive problems

Medications, including hormonal pills, can ease symptoms, while other medicines are temporarily prescribed to shrink fibroids. For women with severe symptoms or infertility issues, a minimally invasive surgical procedure known as a myomectomy may be performed to remove fibroids.

Menstrual Disorders

Are you dealing with prolonged or heavy menstrual cycles, Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), loss of menstruation or premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)? Everything from hormonal imbalances to sexually transmitted diseases and genetics can lead to menstrual disorders. If you are dealing with changes in your menstrual cycle that has occurred for more than two months, it’s time to see a Physician for an evaluation.

How your menstrual disorder is treated will depend on the root cause of your symptoms. Home care and lifestyle changes such as getting regular exercise could improve your symptoms. Our team may recommend hormonal therapy and alternative holistic approaches and remedies.
