Endometriosis is a painful, chronic disorder that affects millions of women. If you have endometriosis, tissue similar to the lining of your uterus (called the endometrium) grows outside of your uterus. The tissue can spread through your pelvis, affecting your ovaries and Fallopian tubes.
Just like your endometrium, when your period arrives, this tissue breaks down and bleeds. But the tissue doesn’t have anywhere to go and can get trapped in your pelvis, irritating your tissues even more.
All of this adds up to pelvic pain that repeats month after month or even causing long-lasting discomfort. Some women have such severe pain that they are unable to go to work or school. Over-the-counter medicines might not even dull the pain.
But new products, some of which are available only through a pharmacist, could help make your endometriosis less painful so you don’t miss out on your work, school or play.
Ananda Professional Endo-Relief Cream
This cream, which can be inserted directly into the vagina when you need it, contains cannabinoids (CBD). CBD is a natural product, extracted from hemp, that is safe, non-addictive and does not get you “high.” But it does offer great benefits, especially for pain relief.
CBD can activate serotonin receptors. Serotonin is a hormone that boosts happiness and reduces feelings of pain. When receptors are more active, your body absorbs more serotonin, helping you feel less pain.
CBD may offer pain relief in other ways, too, but studies are still ongoing. The National Institute of Health is currently studying how CBD relieves chronic pain, muscle pain and other issues.
The Endo-Relief cream delivers pain reduction where you need it most. By inserting the cream then lying down for 10 minutes, it can be absorbed more directly, helping you find relief. However, it is not compatible with condoms, so it should not be used before intercourse.
Ananda Professional Full Spectrum Soft Gels
While the Endo-relief cream is used vaginally, you can also take CBD in the form of soft gels for more systemic relief. The soft gels contain a full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. All of these ingredients combined can lead to an “entourage effect.” That means they work together to give you the best, most effective response.
When you take soft gels, you might find that you feel less pain and less anxiety. They can help make your periods more bearable, even when your endometriosis is flaring up.
Ananda Bliss Intimate Oil
Unfortunately, endometriosis can also cause pain during sex. This intimate oil, which contains CBD, can help soothe and relax you so you can focus on pleasure, instead of pain. It is compatible with condoms, so you can be safe and happy when being intimate with your partner.
At The Hemp Pharmacist in Chesapeake, we offer safe CBD products from a real pharmacist you can trust. We can help you find the right products to reduce and relieve endometriosis pain naturally. To learn more about our CBD products for endometriosis, please call 757-577-1024.
