Pregnancy is a beautiful phase in every couple’s life. The news of the addition of a new member in the family is a matter of joy and celebration. A woman undergoes physical as well as emotional changes when she is pregnant and these changes are very fast. The best thing to do during pregnancy is to accept the changes and consider the changes to be normal.
Pregnancy is a different experience for everyone. For some, there is difficulty before pregnancy and for some, the problem arises during pregnancy. One of the serious problems that most couple face is, in the form of infertility. Infertility can occur in both men and women and its occurrence does not depend on a single factor. Though our lifestyle plays an important role in this scenario. One of the reasons that affect female fertility is endometriosis.
The term endometriosis is derived from the word endometrium. The endometrium is the inner lining of the uterus. Each month, the endometrium thickens and renews itself, preparing for pregnancy. With endometriosis, displaced endometrial tissue continues to act as it normally would — it thickens, breaks down and bleeds with each menstrual cycle. Because this displaced tissue has no way to exit your body, it becomes trapped. When endometriosis involves the ovaries, cysts called endometriomas may form. Surrounding tissue can become irritated, eventually developing scar tissue and adhesions — abnormal bands of fibrous tissue that can cause pelvic tissues and organs to stick to each other.
How Endometriosis affects Fertility?
Endometriosis results in the formation of scar tissues and adhesions throughout the pelvis. These adhesions can cause distortion of the fallopian tubes and the ovaries which in turn affects the fertilization and implantation. Many theories suggest that the chemicals produced in the inflammation decreases the egg quality, affects the fertilization and implantation. Moreover, endometriosis patient has a greater risk for ectopic pregnancies in which the fertilized egg implants in the tube instead of implanting in the uterus.
Symptoms of Endometriosis
- Painful cramps during menstruation.
- Pain during intercourse.
- Frequent urination especially during menstruation.

Patients can seek IVF treatments to improve the rate of fertilization and implantation.
