  • Endometriosis And Infertility
  • Endometriosis has become more common case of
    infertility in women. SWCIC- one among the
    renowned fertility centers in Hyderabad India
    takes care of that with the support of
    experienced professionals.
  • Endometrium
  • The endometrium is the tissue that lines the
    inside of the uterus (womb). Endometriosis is a
    condition where endometrial tissue is found
    outside the uterus in the abdomen. Every month
    along these areas of endometrial tissue bleed in
    the abdomen giving rise to inflammation and pain.
  • If left untreated theses endometrial patches
    could give rise to infertility (due to blocked
    fallopian tubes) and adhesions. In the ovary they
    cause cysts (blood filled bubbles) called
    chocolate cysts.

  • Who gets endometriosis?
  • About 1 in 10 women have symptoms due to
    endometriosis which range from mild to severe
    depending on the extent of disease. Symptoms
    develop between the ages of 25-40 and symptoms
    reduce with pregnancy. Sometimes it runs in
    families Estrogen levels fall after the menopause
    thus reducing the incidence of endometriosis Once
    the endometriosis has gone with treatment it may
    recur again in the future.
  • Symptoms of endometriosis
  • Painful periods. The pain typically begins a few
    days before the period and usually lasts the
    whole of the period and subsides after the
    period.
  • Painful intercourse.
  • Bleeding in between periods.
  • Difficulty becoming pregnant (reduced fertility).
    This may be due to clumps of endometriosis
    blocking the passage of the egg from an ovary to
    the fallopian tube.

  • Diagnosis
  • Endometriosis is diagnosed either by an
    Ultrasound scan (if chocolate cysts are seen) and
    diagnosis is confirmed by a Diagnostic
    Laparoscopy where the patches of endometriosis
    are not only seen but can be treated at the same
    time.
  • Treatment
  • If endometriosis is left untreated, it becomes
    worse in about 4 in 10 cases. Endometriosis is
    not a cancerous condition. The main aims of
    treatment are to improve pain and help the couple
    to conceive.
  • a. Painkillers for endometriosis
  • Paracetamol taken during periods may be all that
    you need if symptoms are mild.
  • Anti-inflammatory painkillers such as ibuprofen
    and diclofenac (not all women can take these
    tablets, please consult a doctor before use)

  • b. Hormone treatments for endometriosis
  • The combined oral contraceptive pill (the pill)
  • The intrauterine system (IUS) special coil It
    is not only used as a contraceptive but also
    greatly reduces or even abolishes bleeding of
    periods. Once put in place, it can remain
    effective (for contraception and to ease pain)
    for up to five years.
  • GnRH (gonadotropin releasing hormone) analogues-
    these are given as a course of 3 or 6 injections
    and are quite effective. Use of these injections
    however, is limited in young patients where
    fertility is an issue.
  • C. Surgery for endometriosis
  • Laparoscopy is commonly used to treat endometrial
    patches in the abdomen and also to remove cysts.
  • If your family is complete, and symptoms are
    severe, then hysterectomy (removal of the uterus)
    may be a good option, if all other methods have
    failed
