What happens if Endometriosis is left untreated?

If endometriosis is left untreated, it can lead to several complications, including:

  • Chronic pelvic pain: Endometriosis can cause severe and debilitating pelvic pain that can greatly impact a woman's quality of life.
  • Infertility: Endometriosis can affect fertility and make it more difficult to conceive.
  • Ovarian cysts: Endometriosis can cause the formation of ovarian cysts, which can be painful and may require surgical removal.
  • Adhesions: Endometriosis can cause the formation of adhesions. This can lead to pain and can affect the function of the organs.
  • Bowel and bladder problems: Endometriosis can also cause bowel and bladder problems, such as constipation, diarrhea, and painful urination.
  • Emotional health: Endometriosis can also affect emotional health and can cause depression, anxiety, and a reduced quality of life.

It's important to note that early diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis can help to prevent complications and improve the chances of conception.

It is also worth mentioning that endometriosis can be a chronic condition, which means that it can come back after treatment. So, it's important to work with healthcare providers to monitor the condition and make adjustments to treatment plans as necessary.
