Endometriosis Endometriosis


Endometriosis is a medical condition where the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus grows outside of it, typically on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the tissue lining the pelvis. This tissue responds to the menstrual cycle in the same way that the lining of the uterus does, resulting in bleeding, inflammation, and pain.

Symptoms of Endometriosis

The main sign of endometriosis is pelvic discomfort, which is frequently related to menstruation. Although many women experience cramping during their periods, those who have endometriosis frequently report far more severe menstrual pain than normal. Over time, pain may also get worse. Some common symptoms of endometriosis are:

  • Severe menstrual cramps
  • Heavy periods
  • Pain during sex
  • Painful bowel movements or urination
  • Fatigue
  • Infertility.

However, not all women with endometriosis experience symptoms.It’s important for women with symptoms of endometriosis to see a healthcare provider to get an accurate diagnosis and to discuss endometriosis treatments options.


The exact cause of endometriosis is not fully understood, but it may be due to a combination of genetic, hormonal, and environmental factors. There is no known cure for endometriosis, but treatment options include pain medication, hormonal therapies, and surgery to remove the tissue.
