Endometriosis and Fertility: A Simple Guide

Endometriosis occurs when tissue that is normally inside the uterus is found in other places, such as the ovaries or pelvis. This abnormal growth can stick the pelvic organs together, causing pain and fertility problems.

The condition can block the fallopian tubes or reduce the number of eggs available, complicating pregnancy. For women with endometriosis who want to become mothers, In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is often the best treatment. With IVF, eggs are fertilized in a laboratory, and healthy embryos are transferred to the uterus.

How Does Endometriosis Affect Fertility?

Endometriosis can cause tissues to grow where they shouldn't and during menstruation, these tissues can cause severe pain and form scar tissue that binds the organs together. This can make natural pregnancy difficult.

Endometriosis can reduce the quality and quantity of eggs and cause pain during sex, which can also affect your chances of conceiving.

Main Symptoms

The most common symptoms include severe menstrual pain, abdominal pain, and pain during sex. Some women may also have irregular bleeding and fatigue.

Causes and Diagnosis

The exact cause is unknown but may include genetic factors, immune disorders, and other health problems. Although laparoscopy is a common method to diagnose it, at Ingenes we prefer transvaginal ultrasound, a less invasive procedure that can effectively detect endometriosis.

Treatments to Achieve Pregnancy

Although endometriosis can be painful and affect many women, there are treatments. IVF is the best option for those who have endometriosis and want to have a baby.
