Endometriosis assistance with infertility

Endometriosis can influence fertility. Endometriosis is associated with an increased difficulty becoming pregnant and general infertility. It can cause distorted pelvic anatomy, adhesions, scarred fallopian tubes, inflammation of the pelvic structures, altered immune system functioning, changes in the hormonal environment of the eggs, impaired implantation of a pregnancy, and altered egg quality.

Hope for women who want to be pregnant.

If you’ve been diagnosed with endometriosis and you wish to get pregnant, don’t assume that all hope is lost. There’s a common misconception that endometriosis causes infertility and this has caused lots of women untold amounts of stress. Fortunately, there is plenty of good news about endometriosis and fertility.

Just because you have endometriosis doesn’t mean you’re infertile. It may be harder to get pregnant, but the level of difficulty varies for each woman and the extent of their endometriosis. If you have endometriosis, there’s no harm in trying to get pregnant on your own, and no need to see a fertility specialist right away.

If you are not pregnant after six or seven months of trying, ask for an infertility consultation to see if endometriosis is contributing to your difficulty getting pregnant. Then, the first step is to be evaluated by a fertility specialist to make sure your fallopian tubes are open.

Many women with endometriosis have completely open tubes but still struggle with fertility. Depending on the extent of your disease, your treatment options might range from oral medications all the way up to more advanced treatments like in vitro fertilization. These options depend on many factors, including your age, reproductive history, overall health, and the results of your infertility evaluation.

The bottom line is simple: Your chances of conceiving in spite of endometriosis are better than they’ve ever been, so it’s worth exploring the many treatment options available today.
