Victims of emancipation
Today, you can give birth at almost any age thanks to the development of reproductive technologies. However, emancipation has led today’s women to a reproductive dead end: the age of entry into the first pregnancy has shifted from physiological norms.
In the first place for young women today is a career, so by the time of planning a pregnancy, a woman has two or three diseases. The most common diseases are associated with regular menstruation.
Proof that nature intended otherwise is precisely those hormone-dependent diseases that most often occur in women who delay pregnancy.
However, the occurrence of these diseases cannot be categorically associated with the absence of pregnancy, since the pathogenesis of endometriosis and fibroids, for example, is still unknown. We can only say that postponing pregnancy objectively creates additional risks for the development of such hormone-dependent diseases as endometriosis, fibroids, mastopathy, and functional ovarian formations.
“Turn off” dangerous vibrations
Consider, using the example of endometriosis, how pregnancy or its absence can affect the course of the disease.
Yes, medicine knows cases of this disease in girls (before the first menstruation) and mature women (after menopause and the cessation of menstruation), but in most cases endometriosis is a disease of women of reproductive age.
It is impossible to answer the question why endometriosis occurs. The mechanisms of its development to date remain largely unclear. It can be hormonal or immune imbalance, stress, ecology, hereditary predisposition.
Endometrioid heterotopias (formations with atypical localization), although very “tenacious”, can nevertheless regress (decrease in size).
More than 35 years ago, American clinicians found that amenorrhea (absence of menstruation for several menstrual cycles) reduces the proliferative activity (tissue growth) of disease foci.
How it works became clear after the discovery of the most important feature of heterotopias: it turned out that they also “menstruate” regularly, like normal endometrium. Monthly bleeding outside the physiological location contributes to the spread of endometriosis. Therefore, it finds similar features with the tumor process.
