How Endometriosis affects your fertility chances for successful conception?

Endometriosis is a tricky problem. Around 30-40% of infertile women are diagnosed with endometriosis. There are various unresolved questions surrounding the impact of endometriosis on fertility. This is why patients having endometriosis are confused when choosing the right treatment. A local gynecologist is usually going to advise Lupron to suppress menstruation and will relief her from pain. While a laparoscopic surgeon will suggest a surgery to remove the cysts caused to endometriosis. However, is an endometriosis visits an IVF specialist, IVF treatment will be suggested to achieve pregnancy. Every doctor will highlight the advantages of their suggested treatment but the patients should consider three key variables before making a decision. The three variables are 1) the presence of cysts 2) pelvic pains and 3) fertility. Some patients may be experiencing all the three symptoms and require separate analysis.

Note that cysts only more than 30 mm need a treatment plan and others can be left alone. Unfortunately, this surgery is not apt as the patients may fear complications like cyst ruptures. So you can try non-surgical options like vaginal ultrasound guided cyst aspiration. Other issues with few patients having endometriosis are pelvic pains and infertility.

Endometriosis leads to infertility in various ways. If endometriosis causes damage to the fallopian tubes or ovaries then it subsequently reduces the woman’s ability to conceive. However, if there is no damage to the fallopian tubes and ovaries, then the endometriosis impacts the movement of sperm, egg, egg fertilization, embryo growth and implantation.
