As we mentioned in previous articles during the last stage of the menstrual cycle normally a layer of endometriosis lining in the inside of the uterus is expelled, known as menstruation blood but instead some of the endometriosis tissues grow somewhere in the body causing endometriosis. Endometriosis also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle, building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through menstrual period. In this article, we will discuss what exhibits iatrogenic malfunction to cause endometriosis ?


I. Definition
Iatrogenic origin suggests that endometrial cells may adhere to the lining of the abdominal cavity or an organ within the cavity by some form of medical intervention.

II. Iatrogenic Origin and endometriosis
1. Birth control pills
Women take birth control pills to prevent pregnancy. Unfortunately, pregnancy may happen without being noticed causing hormonal imbalance that interferes with the normal growth of the fetus in the uterus resulting in some abnormal development of cells. Some cells in the peritoneum develop into endometrial cell within the abdomen causing endometriosis at purity. Also birth control pills, besides contributing to thinning of the endometrial lining, it also cause the blood vessel to dilate, increasing the risk of retrograde menstruation and endometrial implants leading to endometriosis after the pill has stopped. Study shows that infertility medication causes 57% of women to develop endometriosis.

2. Anti inflammation medication
Certain anti inflammation medications block the prostaglandins hormone that helps our body to respond to inflammation when the body's tissue is damaged. They also suppress our body's immune system to prevent organ rejection after transplant may increasing the risk of endometriosis.
