IVFAlong the lining lies the endometrial tissue, which is the tissue responsible for menstruation. When the endometriosis sloughs off, it causes bleeding at the time of period. Endometriosis means the development of abnormal cells in the lining of the uterus and outside of it. The extra growth occurs in the abdomen, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and ligaments supporting the uterus. There is no known definitive cause for endometriosis, and it is not preventable. On average, 1 in 10 women worldwide between the ages of 15 and 49 years are affected by Endometriosis.
What are the typical Endometriosis symptoms?
One of the issues with endometriosis is that there are not many outward symptoms at the early stages. Only if the disorder advances one may observe the below symptoms:
- Heavy or painful periods
- Abdominal pain or cramping before and during your period
- Pain during or after intercourse
- Painful urination or bowel movements
- Diarrhoea or constipation
- Bloating or nausea
Relationship between Endometriosis and Fertility
Endometriosis affects fertility, and about 35%-50% of women with this condition have difficulty conceiving. Endometriosis affects fertility in the following three ways:
Tube blockages: If the extra tissue grows on the fallopian tubes, it prevents the egg from making its normal passage during ovulation.
Ovarian cysts: If the extra tissue grows on the ovaries, it causes cysts which prevent egg passage and can damage the ovaries.
Pelvic toxicity: If there are no cysts or blockages, endometriosis can still cause infertility due to changes in the pelvic environment.
Treatment for Endometriosis
Laparoscopy is a method for diagnosing and removing endometriosis. Under general anaesthesia, your abdomen will be inflated with air. A tiny camera and other surgical instruments are inserted through several small incisions in your abdomen. Under this laparoscopic procedure, all the endometriosis growths and scar tissue are gently removed. One should wait for at least seven months after laparoscopy to start an IVF program.
How does ZIVA’s IVF benefit women with Endometriosis?
IVF is a good solution for those with Endometriosis who wish to have children. In vitro fertilisation (IVF) is one of the most sought out fertility treatments for couples facing infertility.
When you begin IVF, you will need special monitoring, and your fertility medications must be managed very carefully because they can temporarily trigger symptoms of endometriosis. After pregnancy, one is often relieved of the discomfort of endometriosis. After the delivery, you will need to resume your treatment.
IVF to get pregnant with Endometriosis
In vitro fertilisation (IVF): IVF involves a series of procedures. The first step is ovarian stimulation, where injections are medicines given to the female partner. This step aims to increase the number of eggs during the monthly ovulation cycle. At the appropriate time, eggs are extracted from the female. The extracted egg is fertilised via the male partner’s sperm in the lab’s petri dish. Here donor sperm can also be used based on the couple’s mutual agreement. An embryologist carefully monitors the fertilisation. After fertilisation, healthy embryos are implanted into the uterus. If there are more healthy embryos, then the couple can choose to freeze the embryos.
Embryo freezing is very beneficial, especially in cases of endometriosis, since if the couple wants to have another child, they don’t have to worry about endometriosis. The frozen embryos are retrieved from the storage unit, processed, and inserted into the female uterus.
If the couple uses a fresh or frozen embryo after inserting the embryos into the uterus, the pregnancy follows the natural lifecycle. However, extra monitoring will be needed, especially for females older than 35 years.
The success rates of endometriosis-IVF are about half of the success rates of those with other reasons for fertility issues. IVF works best for people with moderate to severe endometriosis. It also works for those whose bodies haven’t responded to other treatments. Other tips which will help women with Endometriosis to achieve pregnancy are:
- Maintaining healthy weight
- The diet should contain fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins.
- Regular daily exercise such as walking, lifting weights, and participating in an aerobics class
- Age is one of the factors in getting pregnant. The younger the couple’s age the better is the chances of fertility. After age 35 and older, there is an increased risk for fertility and miscarriage than in younger women.
One of the best news is that many people with endometriosis who conceive deliver a healthy baby. When you visit the ZIVA Fertility Clinic, we will analyse the reason for your infertility.
