It is hard even for the most ardent of researchers to isolate IVF as solely responsible for the successful pregnancy of women afflicted with endometriosis. However, one thing’s for sure, with the help of IVF endometriosis can be conquered by women who want to conceive.
Britain’s leading newspaper The Guardian got hold of two cohort studies that tried to document the impact of IVF on women with endometriosis. One titled “Results of IVF in patients with endometriosis: the severity of the disease does not affect outcome, or the incidence of miscarriage” was printed on Human Reproduction in 1995, while the other-“Endometriosis: a stage by stage analysis: the role of in vitro fertilization”-appeared in Fertility and Sterility also in 1995. The Guardian said that according to these two studies, women with endometriosis stand a good chance of getting pregnant just as much as those affected by other types of infertility. And mild or severe, it looked like endometriosis is no barrier to having a baby for women undergoing IVF.
If you want facts and figures to back this information, you can visit the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority website dedicated to monitoring and licensing British fertility clinics and all British research on human embryos. But since a cohort study differs from a clinical trial, it will still be hard to credit IVF for the sole success, because cohort studies do not say how many infertile couples would have a baby sans IVF. It will also be hard to tell, particularly in the cases of women with past pregnancies who later went for IVF.
In other words, figures alone will not verify exactly how much IVF treatment improved their chances to conceive. As far as The Guardian can say, there is no study-past or present-that focuses on the effects of IVF on endometriosis, alone. If it is any consolation, just be glad that IVF can help you overcome infertility, even with endometriosis in the picture. New alternative therapy boosts your chances with IVF
Regardless if you have endometriosis, the Wurn Technique (patent pending) is a new and revolutionary manual physical therapy that has helped women succeed with pregnancy through IVF by as much as 67 percent, when used before an IVF transfer.
Developed by American couple Larry and Belinda Wurn, this new technique gives you the feeling of deep massage and helps improve female infertility. How the Wurn Technique improves IVF success
The Wurns developed their unique therapy technique 20 years ago after Belinda developed cervical cancer that left her organs and pelvic tissues adhered in a condition called frozen pelvis. In this condition, adhered tissues act like a strong glue and can impair organic functions. Endometriosis can also bind adjacent tissues on or within any of your reproductive parts, often resulting in female infertility.
Most medical experts would turn to surgery to try and correct adhesion. But instead of pursuing this option, the Wurns decided to find other possible treatments.
Armed with a post-graduate knowledge of advanced manual physical therapy, the couple began using the techniques they learned in class on Belinda, basing them on the tissue adhesion principle. In time, pain from her pelvic condition began to decrease and disappear. Success with infertility and IVF through the Wurn Technique
Today, Larry and Belinda continue to help and give new hope to women suffering from infertility for different reasons. A study that came out in a 2004 issue of the Med Gen Med (now The Medscape Journal of Medicine) , said 71 women who previously failed their IVF attempts twice or more succeeded in their latest IVF attempt with the help of the Wurn Technique. Of these 71 women, 50 were reported to have successfully given birth.
In terms of sexual reproduction, this revolutionary therapy helps your muscles to relax and loosen up from adhesions. The absence of blockages or adhesion thus allows the normal travel of the sperm within your reproductive region.
Other practical benefits reported in the study include decreased spasms and higher FSH levels. Women with cervical stenosis or fibrosis (stiffness) also tried the technique and reported positive improvements. Their IVF transfer became easier and their implantation rates went up, as well. In addition, the Wurn Technique also helps in successfully opening women’s blocked fallopian tubes.
You could be the next resolved case. For more on the Wurn Technique, read the book “Miracle Moms, Better Sex, Less Pain” authored by Larry Wurn, Belinda Wurn, and Richard King.
