Avodart Abdominal Pain Lower Causes and Reviews
What is endometriosis?
The uterus, or womb, is the place where a baby grows when a woman is pregnant. It is lined with tissue (endometrium). Endometriosis is a disease in which tissue that is similar to the lining of the uterus grows in other places in your body. These patches of tissue are called "implants," "nodules," or "lesions." They are most often found
- On or under the ovaries
- On the fallopian tubes, which carry egg cells from the ovaries to the uterus
- Behind the uterus
- On the tissues that hold the uterus in place
- On the bowels or bladder
In rare cases, the tissue may grow on your lungs or in other parts of your body.What causes endometriosis?
Researchers don't know what causes endometriosis.Who is at risk for endometriosis?
Endometriosis is most commonly diagnosed in women in their 30s and 40s. But it can affect any female who menstruates. Certain factors can raise or lower your risk of getting it.
You are at higher risk if
- You have a mother, sister, or daughter with endometriosis
- Your period started before age 11
- Your monthly cycles are short (less than 27 days)
- Your menstrual cycles are heavy and last more than 7 days
You have a lower risk if
- You have been pregnant before
- Your periods started late in adolescence
- You regularly exercise more than 4 hours a week
- You have a low amount of body fat
The main symptoms of endometriosis are
- Pelvic pain, which affects about 75 percent of women with endometriosis. It often happens during your period.
- Infertility, which affects up to half of all women with endometriosis
Other possible symptoms include
- Painful menstrual cramps, which may get worse over time
- Pain during or after sex
- Pain in the intestine or lower abdomen
- Pain with bowel movements or urination, usually during your period
- Heavy periods
- Spotting or bleeding between periods
- Digestive or gastrointestinal symptoms
- Fatigue or lack of energy
Surgery is the only way to know for sure that you have endometriosis. First, however, your health care provider will ask about your symptoms and medical history. You will have a pelvic exam and may have some imaging tests.
The surgery to diagnose endometriosis is a laparoscopy. This is a type of surgery that uses a laparoscope, a thin tube with a camera and light. The surgeon inserts the laparoscope through a small cut in the skin. Your provider can make a diagnosis based on how the patches of endometriosis look. He or she may also do a biopsy to get a tissue sample.What are the treatments for endometriosis?
There is no cure for endometriosis, but there are treatments for the symptoms. Your health care provider will work with you to decide which treatments would be best for you.
Treatments for endometriosis pain include
- Pain relievers, including nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) such as ibuprofen and a prescription medicine specifically for endometriosis. Providers may sometimes prescribe opioids for severe pain.
- Hormone therapy, including birth control pills, progestin therapy, and gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists. GnRH agonists cause a temporary menopause, but also help control the growth of endometriosis.
- Surgical treatments for severe pain, including procedures to remove the endometriosis patches or cut some nerves in the pelvis. The surgery may be a laparoscopy or major surgery. The pain may come back within a few years after surgery. If the pain is very severe, a hysterectomy may be an option. This is a surgery to remove the uterus. Sometimes providers also remove the ovaries and fallopian tubes as part of a hysterectomy.
Treatments for infertility caused by endometriosis include
- Laparoscopy to remove the endometriosis patches
- In vitro fertilization

Avodart Abdominal Pain Lower Reviews

I think that its a trade off. We all want to be able to urinate easily. I think that the combination of Avodart and uroxatral probably accomplishes this. Uroxatral is almost immediate and I hope Avodart will do what its suppose to do (shrink prostate)

I'm a 63 year old and have been on Avodart and harnal(tamsulosin) for around 3 years.What bothers me now is the constant fatigue , light headedness, an unsteady walking gait, knee pain,poor vision and not to mention zero libido. I'm thinking of stopping Avodart to see whether these problems will go away.

I took Avodart for a a week and starting noticing severe anxiety. When I did a search on the Internet, I discovered so many comments from people with the same problem. I stopped taking it immediately because it freaked me out. I was taking if for hair loss and I noticed results quickly, so I'm disappointed in not being able to continue with treatment.

husband has been taking Avodart for 3 years. Developed a tightness in lungs, dry, non-productive cough, lungs feel a burning sensation. Thorough heart echo tests done, stress test. chest x-ray, mri, blood work, pulmonary function tests all passed. Meeting with pulmonary specialist. Atrial fib, so taking spiriva to see if this helps. 68 years, active, plays raquetball frequently. Read your statement, samy, and wonder if Avodart is behind this. Maybe his body has had enough of this drug? Hasn't smoked for 20 years. What did you decide to do?

No samy, my problems with Avodart are joint pain and change in walking gait.
