Endometriosis


Endometriosis can be a very debilitating health problem that is caused by the endometrial (lining of the uterus) tissues growing outside of the uterus.  The lining of the uterus has been found growing outside the uterus in nearly all parts of the body (in some extremely rare cases, even the brain).  

Usually the tissues are found on the immediate area around the uterus - the outer surface of the uterus, the lining of the pelvic cavity, the tissues that hold the uterus in place, the fallopian tubes, or the ovaries.  This can cause dyspareunia, bloating, digestion issues, painful bowel movements, painful urination, infertility, spotting or bleeding between menstrual cycles, low back pain, pelvic pain, plus many other symptoms. Symptoms tend to worsen during the menstrual cycle.
