Extra antenatal monitoring ‘not warranted’ in pregnant women with endometriosis

But researchers say endometriosis did increase the odds of postpartum bleeding after caesarean delivery.

Pregnant women with endometriosis can be reassured they are not at higher risk of preterm birth and do not need additional antenatal care, a new study suggests.

UK doctors found that the median gestation at delivery was 39+1 weeks in women with pelvic endometriosis compared with 39+4 weeks among women without the condition.
