What is endometriosis?
To better understand the subject, it is important to know that the endometrium is the mucosa or cradle that the uterus conditions each month to receive a possible embryo, in some women this mucosa or endometrial tissue appears in other places outside the uterine cavity, to this it is called endometriosis.
Endometriosis is a benign disease that affects 14% of women of reproductive age.
Endometriosis and infertility
It is possible that most women with endometriosis have difficulties in achieving pregnancy since this disease is frequently related to female infertility, that is why many resort to the help of assisted reproductive techniques such as in vitro fertilization and egg donation.
The success rate of a cycle in vitro fertilization in patients with endometriosis it will depend on both the extent of the disease, as well as the age or type of technique used.
In this sense, oocyte vitrification turns out to be the guarantee to be able to fulfill her dream of being a mother in the future, as well as for those who have to undergo surgeries that may compromise their fertility, or for those who simply want to postpone their motherhood.
It consists of preserving the patient's eggs through the use of liquid nitrogen, maintaining oocyte quality for an indefinite time, so they will maintain the same quality as they had at the time of being frozen once the patient decides to be a mother.
When a woman delays motherhood until very advanced ages, the consequences will be seen in the decrease in the quantity and quality of the eggs in her ovarian reserve, causing problems to achieve pregnancy and a greater risk of spontaneous miscarriages.
However, thanks to reproductive medicine, more specifically the preservation of eggs, hope has been opened for women with endometriosis, since it is a suitable solution for infertility.
On the other hand, endometriosis influences more in the reduction of available eggs than in their quality, which makes it very important for women with this diagnosis to preserve their eggs through vitrification when they are still young to use them in the future.
