Dr. Tamer Seckin Comments on the Effects of Endometriosis on Miscarriages and Infertility

New York, New York (PRWEB) October 25, 2013

Last Tuesday, October 15, marked the anniversary of National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Women who find themselves having a hard time getting pregnant and having a child without miscarriage may have endometriosis to blame. In hopes of decreasing the number of miscarriages and educating women of the disorder, Dr. Seckin, co-founder of the Endometriosis Foundation of America, offers insight on endometriosis and how the disorder affects the fertility of women.

Endometriosis, a chronic gynecologic disorder, has an immunological component that can lead to miscarriages. The disorder is one of the leading causes of infertility in women, where medical studies show that 30 – 50% of women with endometriosis are infertile, and 21% – 44% of infertile women have endometriosis. Luckily, with proactive treatment, women can increase the probability of pregnancy.

This spring, leading gynecologic doctors and experts met at the Fourth Annual Scientific and Surgical Symposium sponsored by the Endometriosis Foundation of America in New York City to discuss infertility and early pregnancy loss in endometriosis patients. While doctors commonly agree that endometriosis affects the uterine lining and interferes with embryo implantation, many doctors are beginning to realize endometriosis can affect the egg quality itself.

“Many women want to have the American dream: two kids, a dog, and a white picket fence,” said Dr. Seckin. “Endometriosis does not have to be the end of that dream. It is cruel that the disease has led to the devastating experience of pregnancy loss. Early diagnosis and intervention are the best treatments.”

Egg freezing is an option for young women who are worried and proactive about their future family building. For women suffering with endometriosis, especially those with recurrent pregnancy loss, it is recommended to use in-vitro fertilization and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis to help achieve a healthy pregnancy.

Endometriosis can also leave a destructive path in a patient’s pelvis. Dr. Seckin has seen a great number of his patients go on to have healthy pregnancies after completing an Advanced Laparoscopic Excision Surgery on their pelvis to eliminate the source of inflammation. Without the surgery, scar tissue and adhesions can form on the Fallopian tubes, making it extremely dangerous for the woman because she must terminate the pregnancy before the tube ruptures.
