Endometriosis And Fertility Three Reasons For Women To Have Hope

The endometrial tissue builds up outside the uterus, in endometriosis causing pelvic pain, especially during menstruation. Through the fallopian tubes into the abdomen, tissues move backward, leading to “reverse menstruation.” 

The condition is more common in women of reproductive age and is usually diagnosed through laparoscopy, a surgical procedure involving a camera inserted through the abdomen. In this blog, we will know does endometriosis causes infertility, does endometriosis affects egg quality, and the relationship between endometriosis and pregnancy.  

Symptoms of Endometriosis

Endometriosis symptoms include:

  • Experiencing pain during menstruation, ovulation, and intercourse.
  • Irregular, lengthy, and heavy menstrual bleeding.
  • Having constipation, bloating, and diarrhea.
  • Infertility
  • Fatigue and depression
  • Lower abdominal/ lower back pain which can radiate to the legs.
  • Ovulation pain

Endometriosis impacts women’s fertility in two main ways:
