How And When To Treat Endometriosis If you Want to Get Pregnanct

Infertility is treated in a variety of ways,and for a women with endometriosis, there is even more to consider. Endometriosis has been called an inflammatory condition which is caused by implants or lesions of uterine lining-like (endometrium-like) tissue outside of the uterus, usually on the ovary or near the ovary, and is associated with  infertility. The degree of inflammation may be related to both the number and location of implants and the degree of infertility. Much research states that ovulation induction, and management of that treatment is the fastest way to conceive. You have to have individual consultation to decide the best overall treatment for both endometriosis and infertility. The link between endometriosis and infertility is not completely clear. There is a "trend" towards infertility/subfertility with endometriosis, and the more advanced the stage the more likely a woman is to be infertile. for advanced cases of endometriosis pretreatment with medication, such as lupron which can drastically lower estrogen levels, may be beneficial, although some studies suggest surgery is associated with more rapid times to conception than medication. The other issue is whether you have a case of endometriosis that will progress if not treated. 30-60% of patients will progress without treatment, and we cannot predict which patients will progress. it may be worth being tested for the amount of blood inflammation that would be one factor in how advanced your case is.Then it's time to gab with your gyno on what the best way to get pregnant will be.
