How can abdominal adhesions cause female infertility?

Abdominal adhesions cause female infertility by preventing fertilized eggs from reaching the uterus, where fetal development takes place. Adhesions can kink, twist, or pull out of place the fallopian tubes, which carry eggs from the ovaries - where eggs are stored and released - to the uterus.

Well I started with endometriosis now I have no life. I am almost in bed all day. I have trouble getting up off a seat or the bed. My husband looks after me 24/7 and he has a bad back and is only partially sighted. Lucky we have been together since I was 13. The adhesions are so bad my surgeon said it is impossible to fix or do more. I live with pain over the scale and f I move the wrong way I have burning and tearing feeling inside that I scream in pain and drop into a ball. What to do! Nothing, just live with it till it chokes everything. And it's already around my bowel, kidneys, liver, just everywhere. And there is no help.

I had adhesions removed about 10 years ago. When they went in to see what was causing my pain, they said that it was so bad that it had attached to my bladder and totally destroyed my left ovary and much more. I have in the last month been having pain in my left side that goes through to my back. My doctor thought it could be kidney stones. After testing and x-rays with dye, nothing showed. I am sure it is adhesions again and I am not sure where to start the process again to get this taken care of. I feel like people think you are making it up because nothing is found to show why you are hurting. So not fair.

My first surgery at age 19 was partial hysterectomy. The possible symptoms were similar to endometriosis. Twenty-five years later I had three abdominal surgeries three weeks in a row, resulting in colostomy and 7 months later take down. Twelve years later needed gall bladder surgery and the surgeon diagnosed severe abdominal adhesions. My pain is internal, like severe abdominal cramping within the intestine.
