Unexplained Infertility | Adenomyosis Relationship?
Do you have any thought on adenomyosis relationship to infertility? I had unexplained infertility and my specialist suspected an adenomyosis. I’m wondering if I can still conceive?
A: Look you can definitely still conceive. There are things that you need to do in order to get a diagnosis, and so obviously getting a diagnosis would be ideal but ultimately the reality is that even with endometriosis, adenomyosis, endometriomas, people conceive.
Even though it can become harder, we have to look at what I always talk about, which are minor factors and really focus on what are the minor factors that are going to get in the way that we need to address. That’s really what it comes down to.
When it comes to infertility, we immediately look for and try to find THE BIG reason or “reasons.” Our ultimate result keeps alluding us, yet in my professional experience, in every case we help, it is the cumulative impact of these minor factors that stop couples from getting pregnant and or carrying a healthy pregnancy to term.
The little subclinical issues that your doctor often fails to point out when he or she glosses over a semen analysis report or a couple of pages of blood test results to categorically pronounce “it all looks fine” while you continue NOT to be pregnant.
Small pieces of the puzzle, in many instances, unfortunately, gets dismissed way too early in the investigative process.
The big problem with these categorical pronouncements is that in 9 out of 10 cases they hide issues (particularly for couples who are struggling to conceive) that when thoroughly investigated, give rise to concerns that ultimately (for the couples I treat) mean the difference between having a baby or not — when left unaddressed.
Sometimes you may even know about a couple of those minor factors but again you are told… “oh it’s nothing major, just keep trying” or “just go to IVF, it will be OK you will have a baby”! Unfortunately, in many cases, it’s not all that easy.
