Endometriosis: can be cause of complex pregnancies.

Endometriosis is an issue many women face. When the endometriosis tissue is visible outisde the womb. This matter is very serious as it can even result in the miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy. According to Dr. Lucky Saraswat, a consultant gynacologist at the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in UK says patients with endometriosis are at a greater risk of enduring difficulties during the pregnancy and even miscarriage in some cases.

A reasonable study was done on a total of 14,655 women whether or not they were diagnosed with endometriosis to evaluate the results.  According to Dr. Saraswat  this is a slightly normal condition and at times is not known of as well. According to this study in comparision to the 8280 women who were not diagnosed with endometriosis and to the 5375 who were diagnosed with endometriosis were at a greater risk of complications during their pregnancy. In fact there was 76% risk of them suffering from miscarriage (odds ratio at 1.76) and were at three times at high risk of ectopic pregnancy (OR 2.7).

Even ladies with previous endometriosis issue are at risk of encountering issues like ante-and postpartum haemorrhage and preterm birth. Dr. Saraswat further says with certain care and counseling on endometroiosis concerning family planning and care during pregnancy can overcome this issue.
