Ayurvedic Management of Endometrial Hyperplasia in early Adolescence Period - A Case Report
Endometrial hyperplasia (EH) is a uterine pathology representing a spectrum of morphological endometrial alterations. It is predominantly characterized by an increase in the endometrial gland-to-stroma ratio when compared to normal proliferative endometrium. Generally, endometrial growths are not malignant. They are normal tissue, but growing outside their normal location. These endometrial growths, just like the lining of the uterus, respond to the hormones of the female reproductive system and build up tissue each month, then break down to cause internal bleeding, inflammation and scarring. The most severe complication of this scarring is infertility.
