Drugs that inhibit the production of pituitary gonadotropins

In most cases, for this purpose, danazol, which suppresses pituitary gonadotropic hormone - luteinizing and follicle, thereby terminate proliferation of endometrial tissue. Ovulation is thus also suppressed, but temporarily, only during the course of treatment. While taking danazol reduced menstrual and intermenstrual bleeding and pain, and the areas of endometriosis may decrease in volume.

In danazol have a lot of side effects, as this drug is a derivative of the male sex hormone testosterone. Under the effect of danazol in women can occur several changes of male type: increased hirsutism, acne, weight gain, and so on.

The drugs - analogues of hypothalamic hormones that suppress the secretion of pituitary gonadotropins and ovarian function in the treatment of endometriosis

These drugs are also called GnRH agonists (gonadotropin hormone Riesling). An example of this group of drugs may be Diferelin. Its action is based on the fact that a prolonged stimulation of the hypothalamic pituitary hormones leads to a decrease of its function and to suppression of ovarian function. This in turn causes a cessation of menstrual function and inhibition of proliferation of sites of endometriosis.

And as the number of drugs that inhibit the secretion of estrogen tough, it is a side effect of osteoporosis - thinning of bone tissue and a tendency to fracture (estrogen prevents osteoporosis). Therefore, GnRH agonists are trying not to appoint a long time.

Conservative treatment of endometriosis is selected individually for each woman.
