In endometriosis  tissue from the uterus accumulates for example in the ovaries, bladder or intestines. The pain increases and sometimes also causes stenosis in other parts of the body. In order to trace a possible endometriosis, it is advisable to first have a detailed consultation with a doctor to describe the woman's symptoms. If necessary, an ultrasound examination may also be necessary. Which form of treatment is the best should be decided individually together with the doctor. The status of family planning, for example, also plays a role here.

Cannabis against the pain symptoms of endometriosis

Several studies have already successfully demonstrated the efficacy of cannabis against endometriosis pain. It is based on the functions of the endocannabinoid system. On the one hand cannabidiol (CBD) can inhibit inflammation, for example by taking a CBD extract, but THC-rich cannabis varieties have also proven to be very useful for pain relief. For some patients, the use of cannabinoids proved to be so effective that surgical interventions could be avoided. Younger patients were able to maintain their fertility and older patients were able to Bypass the time until menopause without pain. With the menopause, endometriosis typically calms down due to changes in the hormone balance, making further treatment unnecessary.
