As we mentioned in previous articles, endometriosis growing somewhere else other than the endometrium also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period. Hysterectomy is always the last resort in treating endometriosis for women who have exhausted all treatments without success, or if endometrial tissues have become cancerous her doctor may suggest some kind of hysterectomy. If hysterectomy is decided and you want to have children sometime in the future, you may want to know about egg and embryo freezing.

Egg or Embryo freezing are 2 options for women who had ovaries removed during endometrial hysterectomy but had some eggs removed from her ovaries before surgery. If the ovaries are not removed in the endometrial hysterectomy, women who want to have children can apply these options anytime they desire.

In order to remove eggs before hysterectomy, certain procedures must be taken to ensure the safety of the women:

1. The woman must be physically healthy.
2. Any pre-existing health conditions that may interfere with the process.

I. Eggs freezing

During the egg freezing process, unfertilized eggs removed from a woman's ovaries are frozen. Sometime in the future they are thawed, if the woman would like to have children or until a suitable gestation carrier is found.

2. Embryo freezing

As mentioned above, after the eggs have been removed from a woman's ovaries they are placed in a small disk together with the woman's partner's sperm cells, then incubated into the embryo. This embryo will be refrozen again until some time in the future when the woman and her partner decides to have a baby. The embryo will be thawed and placed into a suitable gestational carrier where it will develop into a fetus and grow into a baby.

Please make sure you check with your doctor to ensure that all these methods are available in your area.

Since endometriosis is treatable and manageable by natural remedies and self help course, if you have endometroisis, please look at the bright side.
