What is Endometriosis?
Many women suffer from endometriosis, a condition that can result in immense discomfort and greatly affect their overall well-being and feminine health. It is often caused by high levels of estrogen or other factors, like post-hysterectomy complications or C-sections. This disorder happens when the endometrium (the inner layer of the uterus) begins growing outside the uterine cavity so it becomes trapped without a way to exit the body when your menstrual cycle occurs. This can result in painful menstrual cramps, bloating, and infertility in addition to the development of cysts and pelvic adhesions. Board-certified OB/GYN Dr. Janice Alexander can provide you with a diagnosis and treatment to relieve your pain and improve your fertility.

"Excellent Dr - After almost a full year of living in horrible pain and multiple tests from my Dr at the time, I found Dr. Alexander. What a blessing. She did 1/2 of the first test my clinic did and told me that I had Endometriosis. This was within minutes of meeting her. She started me on a treatment plan and within the first month of treatment my pain was minimal. I have been going to Dr Alexander ever since. She is compassionate, caring, and knowledgeable. I have felt very comfortable with her from the beginning. I trust her completely. Thank you Dr Alexander, I am so happy I found you."- Anonymous / Vitals / Jan 16, 2019
How We Perform Endometriosis Treatment
When you come for your appointment in Cedarburg, WI, Dr. Alexander will learn about your health history and perform a pelvic exam along with possible diagnostic tests, such as an ultrasound. Next, a personalized plan will be created to address endometriosis. Common treatments include hormone therapy, such as contraceptives, progestin therapy, or aromatase inhibitors, which can prevent or slow the growth of endometrial implants and provide relief from discomfort. Women who are trying to become pregnant may benefit from an advanced procedure, such as laparoscopic surgery or minimally invasive laser sessions, to delicately remove the buildup of excess tissue. Dr. Alexander will provide you with in-depth information on all of your options to help you make the best decision for your fertility and health.
