Infertility and Endometriosis

Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive a child. However, in the case of endometriosis infertility is also noted when a woman is unable to carry a pregnancy full term, often ending in miscarriages. The American Society for Reproductive Medicine states that endometriosis is found in up to 50 percent of infertile women. That's right, almost half of the women who are unable to conceive have endometriosis. Although this is the case, it is still possible for women diagnosed with endometriosis to have a successful and healthy pregnancy.
