Women with hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) may indeed experience challenges with fertility. Here are some key points:

- Infertility Rates: Studies have found that women with HS often experience higher rates of infertility. One study noted that 41.5% of women with HS who tried to conceive experienced one or more years of infertility.
- Inflammation: HS is an inflammatory condition, and higher levels of inflammatory markers like tumor necrosis factor (TNF) may play a role in infertility.
- Obesity: Obesity, which is a risk factor for HS, can also contribute to infertility by affecting hormone levels and ovulation.
- Treatment Concerns: Some women with HS avoid fertility treatments due to concerns that these treatments might worsen their HS symptoms. However, many who did undergo fertility treatments reported that their HS symptoms stayed the same.

If you are facing infertility, it's important to discuss your HS with a reproductive health specialist. They can recommend treatments and lifestyle changes that may help you conceive.
