Endometriosis Fertility and treatment
When the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus is found outside the uterus, it is termed “endometriosis.” Endometriosis may grow on the outside of your uterus, ovaries, and tubes and even on your bladder or intestines. It is estimated that infertility can affect around 40% of women with endometriosis. Interestingly it has been found that 30-40 % of women undergoing laparoscopy as part of infertility evaluation are found to have endometriosis. About 70 percent of women with endometriosis do not experience infertility. Modern medicine and ART technology offers women with endometriosis much treatment options for relief of both pain and infertility.
