In this day and age when technology has reached peak standards in such a manner that we have become totally relied upon machines like never before. Today, manual labor is virtually extinct in the urban society where you just have to press a button or lever to get things done.
While this can be seen as a major change, it doesn’t mean that your arms and legs are useless because you still need their use in personal and professional matters big time and it is a remarkable trait that rural society hasn’t totally given up on physical labor and retain many old school ways of working.
However, the stress level in our life refuses to die down and gives rise to health issues for both men and women. Now they both go through different health scares because of their gender and body structure where today we’ll discuss about two of them in this article- Endometriosis and Testosterone and the link that binds them.
Adhering to the old saying ‘ladies first’, we’ll begin with Endometriosis- a disease that affects the female reproductive system through the growth of abnormal cells outside the uterus.
The inside is covered by a layer of tissues called Endometrium where the normal cells are developed and protects numerous parts of the reproductive system from harm. Endometriosis has a harmful effect on the fallopian tubes, ovaries and other protective tissues surrounding these organs.
While sometimes the condition can be limited to the reproductive system but in aggressive cases it spreads to other parts of the body thereby harming other organs as well and therefore has to be taken seriously.
A psychological problem that we human beings have is that we don’t take an ailment seriously until it spreads its tentacles throughout the whole body instead of the organs that they harm.
The aggressive symptoms of Endometriosis are pelvic pain, strong menstruation pain, irritable bowel syndrome or pain during bowel movements and, the worst of them all, infertility although sometimes treatment can be administered if the condition is detected early.
The pelvic pain is chronic for nearly 50% of women while nearly 75% of them are afflicted by menstrual pain and then there is pain during coitus where they’re not able to manage for long.
Another grave symptom of endometriosis is low testosterone level in the uterus although certain health experts opine that testosterone levels are not affected and don’t count it as a big issue as they feel it is in the rarest of rare circumstances that testosterone level fluctuates.
It is difficult to bring in a male hormone in a topic pertaining to a disease associated with women but it is highly likely that it has come from the male parent of the female in question.
A 2015 research concluded that the role of testosterone was linked with the disease through Deep Infiltrating Endometriosis (DIE) where lesser the testosterone count greater would be the pain which is why they’re advised medication.
While low testosterone in males can be treated through Testo E in females it is a different matter that we’ll discuss about later.
