Your fertility goals are an essential consideration when discussing endometriosis treatment options with your doctor. Whether you’re trying to conceive, are currently pregnant, or are planning to conceive in the future, our team works with colleagues at the Center for Reproductive Medicine and Fertility to offer treatment options that can relieve your symptoms and support your fertility goals.

Trying to Conceive with Endometriosis

If you have endometriosis, you may have difficulty getting pregnant. If you're trying to conceive, your doctor can refer you to a reproductive endocrinologist. At the University of Chicago Medicine, our board-certified fertility specialists will partner with you to explore every option possible to support your family building goals.  

Endometriosis and Pregnancy

If you’re pregnant, your doctor can help you understand how your diagnosis may affect your pregnancy. Your doctor can also refer you to our maternal-fetal medicine experts at the Family Birth Center, who specialize in managing high-risk conditions, such as endometriosis, during pregnancy. 

Pregnancy After Endometriosis Treatment

If you are considering pregnancy in the future, your doctor will discuss options to help manage your endometriosis symptoms now without affecting your ability to carry a healthy pregnancy after treatment.
