In this paper we consider the relation of pregnancy and endometriosis with the following conclusions: 1. Increased risk for premature deliveries and pregnancy complications, 2. More frequent pre-eclampsia and antepartum hemorrhage, 3. Increased rate of Caesarean sections, 4. Severe pain in pregnancy continues in quite a few patients, 5. Obstetricians should be aware of obstetric emergencies, such as direct bleeding from lesions, bleeding from uterine arteries or veins, interruption of ureter and severe peritoneal decidualized endometriosis.
