   in the body of a woman produces enough. Under the influence of estrogen grows over the mucosa of the uterus - the endometrium. Rejection is accompanied by a thick layer of endometrial severe menstrual bleeding during which mucosal cells fall into the muscle layer of the uterus and begin to grow there under the influence of cyclic hormone. These areas of tissue are identical to the endometrium and endometriosis.

The muscle layer of the uterus, which are endometriosis Endometriosis - a serious problem with serious consequences  Endometriosis - a serious problem with serious consequences
   undergoes certain changes. Monthly rejection areas of endometriosis, accompanied by bleeding, causing inflammation and swelling in the surrounding smooth muscle. The inflammatory process ends with the death of the muscle fibers and their replacement by connective tissue.

The uterus also may develop disorders. The fact is that during menstruation blood, which occurs when separating portions endometriosis partially released into the uterine cavity through the micro-posts.

How to cope with this situation? It will obstetrician-gynecologist of female consultation - an appointment synthetic analogues of progesterone.

Next danger - a state of the uterine wall. The modified wall of the uterus can not be stretched so quickly because of the muscle fibers it has been replaced by connective tissue, which does not stretch at all. The wall of the uterus may be thinner and then later in pregnancy there is a risk of its rupture. What to do? Constantly observed in female consultation - the doctor always has the opportunity to send a woman to the US, which will determine the thickness of the wall of the uterus and the risk of its rupture. If the threat is high, do a caesarean section.

Finally, the threat to the pregnancy may be able to uterus. If it has spikes, then the growth of the fetus and they squeeze it, was forced to take a forced situation. By the time of birth the fetus can take the wrong position, excluding natural childbirth. In this case also caesarean section.

One of the most unpleasant complications of adenomyosis is associated with premature detachment of the placenta. This may occur if the placenta is located near the site of endometriosis or directly under it. All changes in the placenta can be seen on the ultrasound, so you just need to be in a timely manner to receive and fulfill all the prescribing physician.

Similarly, an ultrasound will be visible changes in the vessels of the placenta, which may lead to the development of placental insufficiency Placental insufficiency - deviation from the norm  Placental insufficiency - deviation from the norm

But in order to carry and give birth to a healthy baby, a woman must always be seen in the antenatal clinic and fulfill all the prescribing physician. If you get pregnant on their own can not, then in this case, an obstetrician-gynecologist is almost always able to help.
