Signs of pregnancy with endometriosis? 26 days late, took pt a week ago, came back negative. Light spotting. Is this normal? Stage 4 endo.

Signs of pregnancy with endometriosis? 26 days late, took pt a week ago, came back negative. Light spotting. Is this normal? Stage 4 endo.

Abnormal periods: No this is absolutely not normal. You say you are 26 days late but do you usually have regular periods. Do you have any other symptoms, such as breast tenderness? It may be time to have an ultrasound to look for an answer. You may be having a functional cyst that is keeping you from getting pregnant. Also the like spotting must be investigated. The blood pregnancy test is also a good idea.

How does endometriosis affect pregnancy?

How does endometriosis affect pregnancy?

It normally doesn't: Endometriosis can cause problems with getting pregnant due to scarring that can affect the tubes or involve the ovaries so that the egg and sperm can't meet. It can increase your risk of a tubal pregnancy since it is harder for the fertilized egg to move down to the uterus. There are also chemical changes that can do both those things. Once you are pregnant, endometriosis is inactivated.

Will endometriosis subside after pregnancy?

Will endometriosis subside after pregnancy?

Possibly temporarily: The high Progesterone levels in pregnancy can suppress endometriosis, and the effect can even last well beyond delivery. This observation led to the current hormonal treatments for endometriosis including birth control pills and progestins in various forms. Unfortunately, without continued medical suppression after delivery the endometriosis symptoms often return.

I took two pregnancy tests and received a question mark with both, I have endometriosis and don't have a normal cycle. I have other symptoms weight gai?

I took two pregnancy tests and received a question mark with both, I have endometriosis and don't have a normal cycle. I have other symptoms weight gai?

Blood test: You may wish to get a blood test for HCG level. This would be needed only if you had sex since your last period and the sex was more than 3 weeks ago. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.

Can my endometriosis grow back during pregnancy?

Can my endometriosis grow back during pregnancy?

Possible: I can grow during pregnancy but usually the high hormones during pregnancy actually suppress the endometriosis and make it better. It is more likely to grow after pregnancy is over.

Can your endometriosis symptoms start during pregnancy?

Not Common: To be honest, the high Progesterone levels in pregnancy usually make endometirosis a lot better. But lots of other things can cause aches and pains in pregnancy. That is much more likely.

Can you tell me about pregnancy chances after endometriosis removal?

Variable: Thorough resection of endometriosis substantially improves pregnancy rates. That said, if pregnancy is the only thing we are worrying about (not pain from endometriosis), in vitro fertilization may be a better route to pregnancy that directly treating endo (and this is coming from a surgeon that makes a living removing endometriosis)

Does pregnancy cure endometriosis? I've heard that some women don't have endometriosis symptoms while they are pregnant. Is this true? .

Pregnancy and endo: Pregnancy stops the monthly cycle of hormonal fluctuations that stimulate endometriosis growth. Temporarily, this will set back endometriosis but not cure it. Breast feeding, hormone contraceptives, and menopause all have a reversal effect on endometriosis.

What is the connection between endometriosis and pregnancy loss?

What is the connection between endometriosis and pregnancy loss?

Don't know for sure: No good evidence yet that endometriosis is a cause of recurrent miscarriage (2 or more losses). Endo. May affect embryo implantation, which affects getting pregnant not staying pregnant. Auto-immune antibodies (antiphospholipid antibodies or apa) are more common in women with endometriosis even with no losses. Apa cause some cases of recurrent miscarriage. Need big studies to find if linked or not.

Hi, I have been told one of my ovaries is half the size of the other one. Does this effect pregnancy? I have endometriosis

Hi, I have been told one of my ovaries is half the size of the other one. Does this effect pregnancy? I have endometriosis

Ovary: The ovaries can vary in size throughout the menstrual cycle, when you ovulate you form a dominant follicle or cyst which can make one ovary appear larger than the other. This should have no affect on pregnancy.

If I get pregnant before my lap surgery for endometriosis to be lasored in three days will the baby be ok after and will I continue the pregnancy?

Pregnancy test: If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. If you are pregnant your surgery will likely be cancelled since endometriosis is not usually an issue during pregnancy.
