Endometriosis is a common condition among women, which causes backflow of the uterine lining into the fallopian tubes and outer areas of the uterus. Not only is this condition a frequent cause of female infertility , but it may cause many unpleasant symptoms, including heavy menstruation, persistent feelings of fullness, and significant abdominal pain. Because of these symptoms, you may still consider treatment options for endometriosis, even if you do not have any child bearing goals. In addition, endometriosis may increase the risk of other conditions affecting the reproductive organs, including pelvic inflammatory disease.
Consulting with your doctor or OBGYN can provide you with access to all available treatments. For those facing infertility as a result of endometriosis, a Fertility Specialist can provide personalized, compassionate care to fit your reproductive needs.
