Can I Get Pregnant With Endometriosis

Can I Get Pregnant With Fibroids In The Uterus?

“Can I get pregnant with fibroids?” is a question often asked by women who are aware that they have these common growths, but who are wanting to start a family. Generally, fibroids are harmless and the symptoms they cause can be painful and uncomfortable, but not life-threatening.

Many women can and do conceive despite their fibroids. Indeed, problems arise in the minority rather than the majority of women. However, when problems do occur they can be severe, ranging from miscarriage to infertility.

Whether or not you can get pregnant with fibroids depends on a number of factors. Some of which are easy to determine and some of which are not. If you fibroids are large, or if they are located close to the cervix or the entrance to the fallopian tubes, your chances of conception may be compromised. Large fibroids can distort the uterine cavity making implantation impossible, or cause an early miscarriage even before a pregnancy is confirmed.

Some women asking “Can I get pregnant with fibroids?” may find that becoming pregnant is not the only issue. Once pregnant, fibroids can cause problems in a number of ways. For example, some fibroids will grow during pregnancy due to the influence of the raised levels of hormones. This can then mean that the baby and the fibroid are effectively “competing” for nourishment and this can sometimes (albeit rarely) cause a miscarriage. In addition, large fibroids can sometimes result in premature delivery, but thankfully the pregnancy is often at a stage where this does not cause complications.

About the author: Gail advocates using natural treatments for fibroids rather than using conventional medication or surgery as this is a workable long term solution. Conventional medication only treats the symptoms and fibroids are likely to regrow, whereas natural treatments, when used properly can eliminate the root cause by rebalancing the body and restoring overall health.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What are my chances of getting pregnant? (Endometriosis)?
    I’m 20 years old and I have Endometriosis. I’ve been with my boyfriend for nearly 2 years, but we haven’t had intercourse for 18 months, because of the pain. I have severe pain during intercourse because of the Endometriosis. I’ve had a laparoscopy to see if I had it, and I did, and they said it was too insignificant to remove at the time. But then my gynaecologist done an internal on me and that hurt too, so he put me in for a second laparoscopy to remove the scarring, and I woke up after thinking they’d removed it but they said it was too insignificant again.
    My sister is studying Osteopathic Medicine and felt around my tummy, and felt my womb and ovaries, and said the whole of my left side felt completely damaged. (The endometriosis is on the left side of my womb)
    I’m fed up now, because the pain is so severe, I have terrible lower back pain, terrible pelvic pain, I’m always tired, and I have the pain during intercourse.
    It’s getting to the point now where I want a baby, and I can’t believe how broody I am! My boyfriend also wants one, but has already said, we don’t even have intercourse so how are we supposed to make a baby?!
    What does everyone think my chances are?
    Because I really want a baby quite soon, I’m getting jealous reading everyone elses things of being pregnant!

  2. QUESTION:
    Any advice on getting pregnant with endometriosis?
    My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for a couple of years. A few months ago, I had surgery to remove a cyst, and the doctor found that I have endometriosis. The only option that I know of is IVF, but we can’t afford that right now. Hopefully someone else can give me some advice!

    • ANSWER:
      I don’t think there’s anything specific to do to try getting pregnant. My friend had cervical cancer AND endometriosis and was told she’d never be able to conceive. But after a couple years, to her surprise, she got pregnant and had a completely healthy pregnancy. The only advice I guess is to stay optimistic and to just keep trying without thinking about it, because if it’s meant to be, it will happen.

  3. QUESTION:
    CAN YOU STILL GET PREGNANT WITH endometriosis?
    I think i may have endometriosis, i have alot of the symptoms. I am 25 years old, i would say im healthy. Apart from this past year i have had irregular and pain full periods with alot of clotting. My husband and i have been trying to have a baby for about 10 months now and we sill are not pregnant.My pap smear came back fine. Would this condition even show up on my pap? Please any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi! You would need to get a lap done to be sure. It’s basically an exploratory, diagnostic surgery. It’s not bad. They’ll put you to sleep for it and it’s a minor recovery. There are lot of reasons why they perform laps. Abnormal periods, possible endometriosis, possible tubal occlusion, etc. If you do have the lap, and they find signs of endo, they can probably remove most of the scar tissue right then and there. Then, they would probably tell you to try right away for a baby since the endo tissue will eventually grow back.

      I just had surgery for an ectopic pregnancy last month. And I know that women with endo are at higher risk for ectopic due to scar tissue. The scar tissue can grow and attach to your tubes on the outiside.

      If your doctor won’t perform the lap now, wait two more months and go see an RE (reproductive endocrinologist). Usually after twelve months of trying to conceive with no luck, you can get referred to an RE…and go from there with any diagnostic tests.

      Good luck hun. Hope things work out for you!

  4. QUESTION:
    Can one fall pregnant with endometriosis and how?
    I’ve got a friend who has this condition, she’s 29 yrs old (married)and has undergone 2 operations for this thing.Everyday she calls me crying that she can’t concieve and she thinks she has been cursed with this condition, what can she do to have a child and which medication can she take, she’s been given some stuff but nothing seems to work.

    • ANSWER:
      Endo is a difficult condition to treat. I have suffered with this for many years and am ttc. If your friend has had laser treatment on her endo – it’s a difficult decision to make by her specialist, as sometimes the scar tissue left behind from this treatment can also make it difficult to conceive. Unfortunately the real bummer with endo is the catch 22 that is ‘best form of cure or partial cure is to conceive… annoying I know. We have been ttc for 3 years with no luck, the best thing you can do as her friend is be there for her to moan to, and to cry at! It helps letting out your frustration! Please pass on my luck!

  5. QUESTION:
    Tips for getting pregnant with Endometriosis?
    I actually already posted a similar question, but I decided to repost to see if I could get more answers. This is more out of curiosity, and I’m not trying for kids right now. But I have endometriosis which can make it difficult. I already know when I ovulate, because it hurts like hell from the Endometriosis. So that’s not gonna be an issue. Just any tips that anybody ever used to get pregnant would be much appreciated. Especially if anybody has this infection and has managed to concieve. Thanks so much!!

    • ANSWER:
      I have endometriosis too and was having difficulty conceiving. After 18 months without success I was put on clomid as it was found that I wasn’t ovulating every month. After 6 months without success on clomid alone, I was given IUI treatment (intro-uterine insemination). I have just conceived on the second attempt, at last! So, I’m living proof that it can be done. Hope this helps.
