With all this conflicting information, it's hard to make sense of this complicated and devastating condition. Although some people believe that pregnancy cures endometriosis, the American Pregnancy Association debunked this theory, and noted that pregnancy may alleviate symptoms associated with endometriosis, which are often painful and treated by medication, acupuncture, diet, and a host of other holistic options. But as of today, there is no known cause and no known cure for endometriosis, according to Mayo Clinic.
Unfortunately, there's not much known in the medical community about fertility rates and endometriosis. According to Healthy Women, there is some evidence that women with mild endometriosis are less fertile than women without the condition. However, the article claims that women with endometriosis can get pregnant multiple times. But what about the rate of healthy second babies being born to women with endometriosis?
