Endometriosis Awareness To Avoid Infertility

Endometriosis is a condition within which the inner tissue lining of the uterus grows outside it and might cause severe pain and discomfort. These endometrial tissues break open and bleed when present in the uterus.

Endometriosis tissue can be present in any part of the body and can bleed wherever present. The blood and tissues that get accumulated turn into a cyst or scar tissue.  Scar tissues will cause the organs to bind along.

Endometriosis patients show visible symptoms. The most common symptoms of endometriosis include:
  • Pain during menstrual periods
  • Lower abdominal pain before or during menstruation
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Infertility

How does Endometriosis Affect pregnancy?

Endometriosis will affect the Pregnancy only in two cases. First when the endometriosis affects the ovaries and the next when it affects the fallopian tubes. An egg must travel from the ovary and fallopian tube for the process of fertilization before getting implanted into the uterine lining.

If the endometrial tissue is present in the fallopian tube it can prevent the egg from traveling to the uterus. Endometriosis can damage a woman’s egg and man’s sperm in the uterus. It also leads to inflammation in the body and if left untreated can cause Infertility.

Risk factors for having endometriosis

Pain medication

Severe pain is a factor for many endometriosis cases. For such cases, Pain medications are generally required as they are effective in relieving pain to a maximum extent.

Hormonal therapy

Hormonal therapy also helps in regulating the monthly changes in your body.

Hormonal contraceptives

Hormonal contraceptives can prevent the growth of endometrial tissues present in the uterus or fallopian tubes. Birth control pills can reduce and eliminate the pain caused due to severe endometriosis.

Conservative surgery

Conservative surgery or endometriosis surgery is for women who want to become pregnant again.  The main aim of endometriosis surgery is to completely remove the endometrial tissues surgically from the body without damaging any organ.
