Does this sound like you?

You have heavy and painful menstrual cyles and have had an extensively long path to reproductive health. Endometriosis is extremely tricky because there are multiple factors creating the perfect storm, and they are not always symptomatic. Many women have silent endometriosis with “infertility” being the only symptom. To add fuel to the fire, there are not too many easy options for testing so we’ll share the best testing options for you to figure this out!

Based on the smart fertility Assessment, you:


What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a chronic medical condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus (endometrium) grows outside the uterus. This tissue, called endometrial implants or lesions, can be found on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, the outer surface of the uterus, the intestines, and other pelvic organs. Endometriosis can cause a range of symptoms, including pelvic pain, painful menstrual periods, and pain during sexual intercourse. It can also have a significant impact on fertility.

How does this affect fertility?

  1. Ovulatory Dysfunction: Endometriosis can lead to hormonal imbalances, which may disrupt ovulation (the release of an egg from the ovary). Irregular or absent ovulation can make it challenging to conceive.

  2. Distorted Pelvic Anatomy: The presence of endometrial implants and scar tissue in the pelvis can distort the normal anatomy of the reproductive organs, making it more difficult for sperm to reach the egg and for a fertilized egg to implant in the uterus.

  3. Inflammation: Endometriosis is associated with inflammation in the pelvic area. This inflammation can damage eggs, sperm, and the lining of the uterus, reducing the chances of successful fertilization and implantation.

  4. Fallopian Tube Obstruction: Endometrial tissue can block or damage the fallopian tubes, which are responsible for transporting the egg from the ovary to the uterus. This can prevent the egg from meeting the sperm and lead to infertility.

  5. Immune System Abnormalities: Endometriosis may lead to immune system abnormalities that can negatively affect fertility by interfering with the body's ability to recognize and eliminate abnormal cells, including embryos.

  6. Altered Egg Quality: Endometriosis can have an impact on the quality of eggs produced, which can lead to difficulties in achieving a successful pregnancy.

The relationship between endometriosis and fertility is complex, and not all women with endometriosis will experience infertility. However, the severity and extent of the condition, as well as the presence of other fertility factors, can influence the degree of impact on fertility.

So… the big question I’m sure you’re wondering about is, can you have a baby if you have endometriosis?

YES. Mostly likely, you can! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! But, here’s the thing. Fertility within the context of endometriosis can be super complex.
