Endometriosis During Pregnancy
Have endometriosis and wondering how your condition will affect you and baby throughout pregnancy? We've got all the answers.
What’s the best way to treat endometriosis during pregnancy?
You probably won’t be able to treat it during pregnancy. Outside of pregnancy, it’s often treated with hormones or surgery.
What can I do to prevent endometriosis?
There’s really no way to prevent endometriosis.
What do other pregnant moms do when they have endometriosis?
“I have stage IV endo, but my pain has always been only during cycles, other than some digestive discomfort due to adhesions (and this was a larger issue at the end of my pregnancy). My surgery didn't help me pain-wise.”
“When I got pregnant, it took about three months, but all the pain did subside. Breastfeeding helped, but my menstrual cycle started up six weeks after giving birth (I owe that to being put on birth control pills). I would recommend breastfeeding exclusively after birth because it did really help.”
Are there any other resources for endometriosis?
