Endometriosis

What Is Endometriosis?

It is a common condition which can be seen in women in their reproductive age. In this condition,  the internal lining of the uterine cavity, called endometrium, starts growing outside the uterus. The growth can be seen on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, bowel, and pelvic tissue lining. Though the reasons for the condition are unknown, it has been reported in many females.

Endometriosis and its effect on fertility

The lining of the uterus is formed every month for preparing the uterus for pregnancy. This lining is shed when the woman fails to conceive. It comes out in the form of menstrual blood. If the woman is suffering from endometriosis, the bleeding doesn’t exit and starts penetrating other organs like tubes, ovaries or the peritoneal cavity. The immune system treats it as a wound, which results in the formation of a scar. The scarring causes adhesions and pain during menstruation. If the tubes are damaged in the process, it might result in infertility. Around 5- 10 % of women suffer from this condition and it is a common cause of infertility. Endometriosis Treatment is available at many clinics. Laparoscopic Surgery for Endometriosis Treatment is another relevant treatment option.

Causes of Endometriosis?

The causes are unknown but certain factors are known to contribute-

  1. Hormones– the hormone estrogen, which is found in females, is known to promote Endometriosis.
  2. Genetics–If your mother or sister suffered from it ,you will probably too suffer from it. It may be passed from generation to generation.
  3. Menstrual Period Issues– In some women, the problem of backward period flow is seen, which means the tissue supposed to be shed outside flows backward via fallopian tubes into the pelvis.
  4. Environmental Exposures–exposure to industrial chemicals compounds before taking birth, then she might suffer from the condition.Early onset of the menstrual period (before the age of  11yrs). Heavy menstrual periods that are characterized by a longer duration as compared to 5 days also happen during this period.

Endometriosis and  IVF Success Rate

Endometriosis casts an unfavourable impact on the process of IVF. The egg count and quality show deterioration, thereby decreasing the chances of implantation and pregnancy. However, IVF can help patients with endometriosis to conceive. Endometriosis Treatment in Moga is possible with IVF.

Adenomyosis

It is a condition in which the endometrium breaks through the uterus wall. It can lead to bloating, heavy periods, the pressure in the lower abdomen and cramps during menstruation. The condition might exist in various areas of the uterus or concentrated at one spot. It can lead to loss of pregnancy and failure of implantation.

Endometriosis Treatment and IVF

IVF holds the solution to the condition. In the process, the eggs are retrieved from the body of the female and the sperm is extracted from the male. Both the entities are made to fuse together in a petri dish in a lab. The eggs hopefully fuse with the sperms and form embryos. The embryos are allowed to develop for a period of 3-5 days. The best of them are implanted into the uterus of the woman. If successful implantation and pregnancy follow, it leads to the successful birth of a baby.
