Early and late pregnancy complications were recorded. P0.05). The rate of cesarean delivery was 55.1% in the control group and 61.0% in the endometriosis group (p>0.05). Postpartum uterine atony,bladder injury during cesarean section and requirement of postpartum blood transfusion seen in 6 (6.7%), 2(1.1%), and 1 (11.1%) patients respectively (p0.05). Conclusion: Women with endometriosis are at higher risk for complications during pregnancy.
