Is it true that a woman suffering from endometriosis cannot get pregnant?
Hello, I am a 28 years old female. My office colleague was saying that she won't get pregnant as she was suffering from endometriosis. Is it true? Women suffering from endometriosis cannot get pregnant? She is 30 years old. How can I help her?
@sanjeda Hello, Endometriosis is a common condition in which small pieces of tissue that are similar in make-up to the inner lining of the womb (endometrium) grow outside of the womb; for example on the bowel or bladder, ovaries, and fallopian tubes and on the lining of the abdomen. Symptoms can vary with some women not having any at all, and others having very severe pain. Endometriosis can have an effect on your chances of getting pregnant; most women who have mild endometriosis are not infertile. An estimated 70% of women with mild to moderate endometriosis will get pregnant without treatment. If she wants to get pregnant, ask her to talk to her doctor. It is not fully known how a few spots of endometriosis may affect chances of getting pregnant, but if she has severe endometriosis her chances are likely to be affected. However, even with severe endometriosis natural conception is possible.
