New Delhi, June 24 : Fifty percent of the women suffering from Endometriosis — a condition wherein the tissue lining inside the uterus grows outside — are likely to suffer from infertility, a study said here on Wednesday. “Around 50 percent of women suffering from endometriosis experience infertility. The disease can influence fertility in many ways, including distorted atomy of pelvis — scarred fallopian tubes and altered egg quality,” said the study conducted by Kshitiz Murdia, fertility and IVF expert. Murdia is currently associated with Indira Infertility Clinic and Test Tube Baby Centre at south Patel gar, in central Delhi. The study states that endometriosis leads to formation of cysts known as endometriomas or ‘chocolate cysts’ in the ovaries. In extreme cases, there are possibilities of the growth of endometriosis on the peritoneum, the lining of the abdomen and pelvis. “In some cases, endometriosis grows deep beneath the peritoneal lining, in the area between the vagi and the rectum. In such circumstances there is often more severe pain,” Murdia added. Murdia said endometriosis is a fast increasing disease. Its symptoms are painful periods, deep pain during penetrative sex, chronic pelvic pain and painful bowel motions or urition during menstruation. (IANS)
