It's a delight to have Dr. Geoffrey Sher back. He's been on the show several times, and our discussion on "How to Avoid Implantation Failure During IVF" is one of the most viewed on the channel! Today we're talking about treating Endometriosis - related infertility.
Here are some facts about Endometriosis as shared by Dr. Sher:
- Endometriosis is a condition where cells similar to the lining of the uterus (endometrium) grow outside of the uterus, in the pelvic cavity. - It occurs in about 10% of all women and can be symptom free or may cause a wide spectrum of symptoms. - It’s estimated that 25% - 40% of all female infertility is linked to endometriosis in some way. - Endometriosis is a life-long condition. It cannot be completely removed or cured. While endometriosis can usually be controlled (medically or surgically), the condition itself is not curable. - Removing endometriomas from an ovary may help with getting pregnant.
