How does endometriosis affect fertility?

Endometriosis is a condition for which little is known about the causes and the reasons why it appears and develops.

It seems that there is a type of women that are more prone to experience it due to genetic and immune reasons. It appears in these patients through a process of "retrograde menstruation" through the fallopian tubes and, subsequently, along into the abdomen.

It can cause painful periods, very painful sexual relations, and also difficulty in becoming pregnant.

The reasons for sterility due to endometriosis are varied: from changes in the quality of ovulation, to difficulty in fertilising the eggs due to mechanical anomalies (adherences, cysts, tubal obstructions) and inflammatory anomalies that can affect the spermatozoa and embryos. The degree to which a person may be affected by endometriosis can vary greatly as can the symptoms and consequences in each case. It is advisable to adapt the study and treatment to each specific case.

To correct this type of sterility it is useful to first carry out a study of the factors involved in achieving pregnancy: Confirm the semen is normal, check that the fallopian tubes are permeable and that the ovulation quality is good with hormonal analysis and regular ultrasound examinations. With the results of the prior studies, in some cases, other tests may be required like a laparoscopy that would show the level of severity and would also allow for the anomalies to be corrected at the same time.

If it is taking a long time to become pregnant and the tests are normal, it is necessary to resort to assisted reproduction procedures like IVF. In these cases the prognosis, or possibility of success, is high and you shouldn't be discouraged.

In each case it is important to discover the degree of severity of the condition and to not delay treatment to help the patient become pregnant.
