Pregnant While Suffering From Endometriosis, The Dangers?
Hello doctor, I am 29 years old Innecke Kartika. My first child is now 3 years and 2 months old. The surgeon diagnosed me with endometriosis. There is a lump in my inner stomach. Precisely above the former SC first. By the surgeon I visited, I was advised to take one route only. Endometriosis cells were collected during the CS process in my second pregnancy. So, my question is, is it okay and is it not dangerous to my future baby if I still have a disease in my womb? I am afraid that there will be something (defects and the like) in my future baby if I insist on getting pregnant again … Thank you doctor …
Good morning Innecke, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Endometriosis is a disease of the female reproductive system where there is uterine tissue (endometrium) which is located outside the uterine wall. This condition becomes a problem because this tissue acts like uterine tissue in general, so that he can also experience menstruation and bleed.
Regarding your question, endometriosis in pregnancy does have its challenges. Although it can relieve symptoms in some women, endometriosis in pregnancy can also pose many risks and complications, including:
Miscarriage Premature delivery Placenta previa or placenta that attaches to the cervical door
In your case, with the many complications that may occur during pregnancy, it would be much more ideal if you are pregnant without endomtriosis. However, your surgeon may consider your condition that it would be difficult for you to have children if the operation was done before. Our advice, because we also cannot provide much help because we do not examine you directly, you should seek a second opinion from an obstetrician. However, it is an obstetrician who performs SC and who is competent in dealing with obstetric problems. So the hope is, by consulting an obstetrician, whatever the answer is, it is your maximum effort to find out what possibilities you can take.
Meanwhile, of course, you should more often control your obstetrician when you become pregnant with these conditions. And always live a healthy lifestyle by regularly exercising, avoiding smoking, stress and consuming healthy and nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables and fruit. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
