If I have endometriosis, do I have to tell my doctor if I want to get pregnant?

By Sara Salgado.

Yes, the specialist will usually ask the patient about her reproductive desire and will want to know if she has already had offspring. She will take into account all the information obtained from the patient as well as her age to determine what type of treatment to follow, as some may affect the woman's reproductive capacity to a greater extent.

In any case, it will be recommended not to delay motherhood, as endometriosis is a chronic disease that can worsen with time.
