Endometriosis Awareness Diploma
The medical condition known as Endometriosis affects about 2%-10% of women of a particular age range- those who can conceive. It is a medical gynaecological condition that is quite common. The etymological root of the term is ‘endometrium’, a name for the lining tissue of the uterus. The tissue known as the endometrium builds up and gets thicker during a menstrual cycle. These tissues shed and come out as part of period blood if the woman does not get pregnant. When women have Endometriosis, tissues that look like endometrium develop not inside but outside the uterus. These can be on other organs of the reproductive system in the pelvic area or the woman’s abdominal cavity. As the menstrual cycle goes on and hormonal changes occur, these tissues respond to the hormones every month. As endometrial tissues build up, they do too. This results in bleeding in the pelvis, although in small amounts. This can cause inflammation and swelling, and subsequent scarring in the normal tissues around them. If the ovary is affected, a fibrous cyst known as a blood blister may be formed, a condition known as endometrioma.
The Endometriosis Awareness Diploma course has been developed to equip learners with a clear understanding of this medical condition that affects a significant percentage of women. The Endometriosis Awareness Diploma course includes the causes, symptoms, and how these symptoms show up. The course also consists of the diagnosis and treatment of the condition.
The Endometriosis Awareness Diploma course starts by discussing what exactly Endometriosis is. This also provides general information about menstrual cycles. There are different kinds of Endometriosis, which will be looked at along with their causes, the signs and symptoms, their different stages, and the various risk factors that come with the medical condition. Other topics, like the diagnosis process, including the available methods and benefits, are also covered in the Endometriosis Awareness Diploma course. The Endometriosis Awareness Diploma course deepens into laparoscopy- the most common practice in diagnosing Endometriosis.
Other treatments such as hormonal treatment and surgical processes for treating inflammation or removing tumours caused by Endometriosis will also be discussed. The Endometriosis Awareness Diploma course also provides basic knowledge regarding analgesic treatment and treatments that use artificial hormones for follicle stimulation, surgical procedures that help treat infertility, IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization), intrauterine insemination, and Assisted Reproduction Technology. These processes will be learnt in-depth along with their statistics regarding success. Changes in diet that can be made to alleviate endometriosis symptoms and yoga routines that can relieve the symptoms will also be looked at. The course includes case studies to learn from real-life cases and better know symptoms and treatments.
