If Chocolate Cyst Is Not Treated Correctly, It Can Prevent Motherhood

Endometriosis, known as chocolate cyst, which is common among women, is the cause of infertility in 30 percent of women. Stating that it is necessary to be careful about surgical treatment, Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialist Professor Dr. Erkut Attar warned, "If the cyst is surgically removed before the woman becomes pregnant or the egg retrieval procedure is performed, it can seriously damage the patient's fertility”.

Endometriosis (chocolate cyst) affects an average of 1 in every 10 women in the society. Explaining that chocolate cysts can be seen from the beginning of reproductive age, Yeditepe University Hospitals Obstetrics and Gynecology IVF Specialist Professor Dr. Erkut Attar made important warnings. Reminding that the disease manifests itself in the form of menstrual pain, especially in young girls, Prof. Dr. Erkut Attar said, “Similarly, it causes complaints in the form of pain and groin pain during menstrual period and intercourse in advanced ages. Since chocolate cyst is an estrogen-related disease, it is commonly seen in reproductive age, although it may rarely occur in women entering menopause. "Since chocolate cysts are one of the most important causes of infertility, 30 percent of women with this problem develop infertility," he said.
