Treatment for Endometriosis at Palm Beach Fertility Center
Commonly Affecting Reproductive Age Females
At Palm Beach Fertility Center, we are passionate about helping families
who struggle with infertility build their families. Achieving a successful
pregnancy requires the female body to be in good health. Conditions like
endometriosis which affect the female reproductive organs can make it
more difficult to get pregnant. However, we can offer you treatment options
which help to overcome the challenges that this condition presents.
Although the exact cause of endometriosis is not clear, it results in endometrial
tissue, which normally resides inside the uterus growing and implanting
on the surfaces of the internal organs including the ovaries and the base
of the uterus. Every month during menstruation, the tissue grows and bleeds
resulting in inflammation, scarring, and pain.
- A few risk factors for endometriosis include the following:
- History of pelvic pain
- Pain with intercourse
- Premenstrual spotting
- Family history of endometriosis

Mild or Severe Endometriosis
There is some controversy regarding the role of minimal and mild endometriosis
and its effect on infertility. However, it still felt by most experts
that moderate and severe endometriosis, especially in the presence of
an endometrioma, impacts pregnancy rates significantly and that the endometriosis
should be surgically treated prior to initiating fertility treatment.
Once endometriosis has been treated, it is important to quickly initiate
therapy for treatment of infertility and/or suppressive therapy for treatment
of pain. Endometriosis is a recurrent disease and there is a six-month
to one-year window where the disease will be in remission after surgical
treatment providing a window of opportunity.
