I read that endometriosis can cause infertility through a substance called prostaglandin. What is this and is it true?

Probably. Prostaglandin (pg) is a chemical produced in the body which can cause symptoms of pain, fever, headache, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Some studies have shown that endometriosis increases the pg levels in the pelvis, which decreases the normal movement of the tubes around ovulation. This movement helps the egg and the sperm to move together and the fertilized egg to get to the uterus.
Possible. It is true that endometriosis causes infertility. However, the specific mechanism is not very clear. We believe that endometriosis may cause pelvic adhesion, affect the tubal function, decrease ovarian reserve, and reduce embryo implantation. There are several factors may be involved including prostaglandin, cytokine, such as tnfa.
