Professor Wingfield discusses the impact endometriosis can have on fertility with Arlene Harris.

“It is estimated that one third of women with endometriosis have fertility issues; however, many don’t and endometriosis has been found in women who have several children.

Very bad endometriosis can cause adhesions or scarring within the pelvis and this damages the ovaries, making it difficult for an ovulated egg to find its way into the fallopian tube. In milder forms, the endometriosis lesions cause inflammation or a reaction in the pelvis and toxins are produced which can affect sperm, eggs or embryos.”
