Endometriosis currently affects 1 in 10 women in the world. It happens when the endometrium is outside the endometrial cavity. This can cause severe pain during menstruation and even pelvic pain that can become chronic. In the worst cases, they may even requiring surgery.
Despite being a condition that still has no cure, an early diagnosis can improve the reproductive health of the patient and improve her day-to-day life.
It is important that they know that, at the slightest doubt or unusual symptoms, they should consult and put themselves in the hands of professionals to be able to perform the pertinent diagnostic tests and, in the best of cases, rule out the disease and look for the origin of the pain as soon as possible.
Does endometriosis affect my chances of getting pregnant?
In cases where endometriosis manifests itself severely, it can even compromise the fertility of patients, since in these cases it directly affects the ovaries. It is estimated that approximately 50% of affected women will not be able to get pregnant naturally.
Reproductive Medicine, and more specifically treatments such as fertility preservation, are a great ally to help achieve pregnancy.
Thanks to the vitrification of the oocytes, women can preserve their fertility and decide the right moment to seek pregnancy without losing their quality of the eggs, once endometriosis has been diagnosed.
In the most serious cases, the quality of the ovules is not the most suitable or ovarian reserve is affected. These can be attributed to factors such as age or derived from the disease itself. In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatments can allow us to select those eggs that are better able to be fertilized later in our Assisted Reproduction laboratory.
Is endometriosis the same as endometritis?
In this sense, and although the name and some symptoms can lead to confusion, it is not the same pathology.
Endometriosis is characterized by the invasion of the endometrium into other tissues outside the uterus, the causes of which have not yet been confirmed
On the other hand, endometritis refers to the inflammation or irritation of the endometrium inside the uterus, possibly from a bacterial infection.
Also, chronic endometritis is the continuous inflammation of the endometrium. It is a pathology that can be found in up to 10% of women, although it is known that this percentage is much higher in patients who have had repeated embryo implantation failures or in patients with repeated abortions.
