Planning A Pregnancy After 3 Months Of Endometriosis Treatment?
Good afternoon, I want to ask if I can get pregnant after 3 months of treatment with Visanne?rnBecause I have endometriosis on my right ovary..rnWith the result size 2.01×3.47
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The exact cause of endometriosis is still unknown. However, most experts believe that endometriosis occurs as a result of retrograde menstruation, causing endometrial tissue (the innermost layer of the uterine wall) to grow abnormally outside the uterus, for example in the cervix (neck of the womb), vagina, fallopian tubes, ovaries. (ovary), or even into the pelvic cavity. In addition, there are also those who put forward other hypotheses, which are related to decreased immunity and other factors, such as genetics, alcohol consumption, menarche at a young age, or also menopause at an advanced age.
Due to the exact cause that is not known, there is no definitive treatment that can cure endometriosis. The administration of hormonal drugs, such as dianogest (as contained in the drug Visanne) is more intended to relieve complaints of endometriosis sufferers. With this drug, it is hoped that menstruation can run more regularly, there will be no excessive menstrual bleeding, and pain during menstruation will be reduced. In this way also, patients with endometriosis are expected to improve their quality of life, and pregnancy is easier to plan (because it is easier to determine the fertile period).
However, in addition to taking hormonal drugs according to the doctor's advice, if you intend to plan a pregnancy, you should also have regular sexual intercourse every 2 to 3 days. In addition, balance the steps above with a healthy lifestyle, namely diligently exercising 3 to 4 times a week, eating healthy and nutritious foods (especially those rich in folic acid and vitamin C), sleeping regularly, drinking enough, avoiding stress, and avoid smoking and alcohol.
Although the potential is smaller, it is not impossible for people with endometriosis to get pregnant like other healthy women. Endometriosis size that is less than 4 cm generally has a better prognosis. However, you should also consult with a gynecologist to determine the best treatment. If necessary, the doctor will recommend a pregnancy program technique that suits you and your partner's condition.
Hope it helps ya..
