Chronic endometritis and pregnancy

Are chronic endometritis and pregnancy compatible?

Chances of pregnancy

There is a statistic that in 14% of cases of various pathologies in pregnancy, the "culprit" is chronic endometritis. Experts say that a viable fetal egg together with a healthy functional endometrium are the decisive factors when trying to become pregnant. The fertilized egg looks for a safe haven for further development, the role of which is suitable only for the uterus. But if her tissues are affected, then the blastocyst can not take root. This is what happens with chronic endometrium, when the affected tissues of the uterus can not create conditions favorable for the development of the fetal egg.

Endometritis is an inflammation of the uterine lining of the uterus, as a result of which the uterine endometrium (internal mucous membrane) becomes covered with spikes and scars, thickens and thickens. In such armor it is almost impossible to get used to, and making an unsuccessful attempt, the egg is mercilessly discarded - an early miscarriage occurs. Very often a woman does not suspect that conception has taken place, since menstrual bleeding occurs.

Endometrite develops as a result of disruption of the integrity of the uterine endometrium, when its mechanical damage occurs. Especially often, the cause of endometritis is abortion, the disease can develop after childbirth or surgery. Sexual infections also contribute to impairment of the integrity of the uterine mucous tissues.

Untreated or untreated endometritis passes into a chronic form. He not only causes discomfort with his systematic manifestation (among the signs of the endometritis - acute pain in the lower abdomen, purulent discharge from the genital tract, chaotic uterine bleeding, violation of the menstrual cycle), but in many cases, as we have already said, it causes infertility and habitual miscarriage .

Predictions for pregnancy

In rare cases, a woman can get pregnant on the background of chronic endometritis, but almost always such a pregnancy is doomed. If the egg can be implanted into the endometritis affected by the uterus, the risk of miscarriage will persist throughout the gestation period. Other disorders and complications will also accompany this pregnancy all the time. In addition, endometritis will spread, affecting the fetal tissues, which ultimately lead to its intrauterine death.

How to become pregnant and give birth?

And yet chronic endometritis and pregnancy do not exclude each other. We have outlined a rather gloomy picture only so that you understand: it's about serious things. This is your health, your life and the fate of your future children. If you are unsuccessfully trying to get pregnant, then certainly complete a complete examination, including check the status of the uterus. When confirming the diagnosis of chronic endometritis will have to go through the entire course of treatment, including antibacterial, physiotherapeutic, immunostimulating therapy, oral contraceptives, sedatives and vitamin preparations, treatment of concomitant diseases. Recently, modern methods of treating chronic endometritis - laser therapy, magnetotherapy, infusion therapy, ozone therapy and others have been increasingly used. Just note that chronic endometritis is a serious pathology, which is treated quite long. But without this, it is in vain to hope for a successful pregnancy and successful bearing. Completely cured endometritis does not present any danger for future pregnancies.

In some cases, when the pregnancy took place against a background of chronic endometritis and it was detected early, treatment can be performed with minimal risk for the child.

Do not be discouraged if you have a chronic endometrium. In fact, today such a diagnosis is put to women more often. And this does not prevent in the future, after passing the treatment course, give birth to healthy children, many healthy babies. Often (but not necessarily!) Doctors resort to stimulation and IVF, but the main thing is that everything is possible! And you, too, will be all right - you'll see!
