Getting Pregnant With Endometriosis

You Can Have a Baby With Endometriosis

Hello Everyone. If you have endometriosis, there is no doubt that the impact on your life is profound.

Endometriosis pain can be different for every woman. It can feel like your insides are being torn apart or electrified at some parts of the month, or you may have dull, nagging aches in the back and pelvic area regularly. Accompanying symptoms can interfere significantly with your daily life.

This post is to reassure you that there is natural help if you have endometriosis and are worried about infertility. Please share with anyone that suffers from this debilitating condition. It may give them great hope.

Endometriosis and Fertility

Life with endometriosis can be extremely limiting and can often send sufferers to bed for days on end, where they spend the time curled up in a ball, with intense pain, feeling unable to move.

Your tummy can swell, causing what is commonly known as an ‘endo belly’. The pain can be excruciating when you go to the bathroom, extending to other parts of your body, like your back and legs.

Heavy periods can accompany endometriosis, meaning you can never be far from a bathroom. Endometriosis can lead to hormonal acne, painful cysts, psoriasis, and arthritis.

Endometriosis can be exhausting, and can leave little room for life’s pleasures.

Intimate relationships, work, school, social life, and mental well-being can all be affected, and for many, there’s the added worry about infertility.

Infertility With Endometriosis

As I mentioned, endometriosis is a chronic inflammatory condition that can present itself with severe pelvic pain throughout the month, along with many debilitating symptoms.

It can cause dyspareunia (painful intercourse) and severe constipation and is linked to infertility. This chronic inflammation condition often goes largely undiagnosed.

The World Health Organisation reports 190 million women of reproductive age globally receive an endometriosis diagnosis. It describes endometriosis as the tissue that lines the uterus, which then grows outside the uterus.

An immunosuppressive state caused by chronic inflammation (dysregulation of the immune system) can be the perfect environment for this to occur.

The American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology (AJOG) states that 6 out of 10 endometriosis cases are not picked up in the US.

AJOG classifies endometriosis as a wide-ranging and pervasive sequela (a condition that is a consequence of previous injury) described as ‘nothing short of a public health emergency ‘requiring immediate action.’ 

AJOG also states that from a clinical perspective, endometriosis may be better defined as a menstrual cycle-dependent, chronic, inflammatory, systemic disease that commonly presents itself as pelvic pain.

Oftentimes, other health challenges present themselves with endometriosis. Like iron deficiency and the symptoms of what that entails, like extreme fatigue, difficulty walking, or the need for infusions.

Can Endometriosis Cause Depression?

Depression often accompanies this chronic inflammation condition, which is understandable. Endometriosis can take over your life. If social life is diminished, work life is a challenge, and you are confined to bed regularly, this can all contribute to low mental well-being.

Depression also occurs due to a physiological process due to the nature of the chronic inflammation.

Chronic inflammation increases neuroinflammation (brain and spinal cord inflammation), which affects mental well-being.

Anxiety and depression are heightened when inflammation is present.

Can You Get Pregnant With Endometriosis?

Yes, you can get pregnant with endometriosis. Many women with endometriosis have gone on to have healthy babies by reducing inflammation.

Inflammation can disrupt the function of the endometrium, causing impairment in critical cell processes which prepare the endometrium for pregnancy, and it can reduce progesterone levels, for instance.

Do discuss this anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle to treat endometriosis with your doctor.

We start with a focus on the microbiome and the liver on the 6-week Reset. Read the testimonials about the benefits of this health-changing protocol before going forward to next-level health.

Certain bacteria in the microbiome are associated with endometriosis, which is balanced through the Eat Burn Sleep lifestyle. Treating gut dysbiosis improves immune response and reduces chronic inflammation.

This is why members who have endometriosis and other inflammatory conditions, with fertility concerns, have been able to conceive and have a baby on this lifestyle.

Chronic inflammation is linked to infertility and miscarriages.

When you reduce inflammation around the uterus, the chances of having a healthy implantation and a positive outcome for pregnancy are much higher.
