What is Endometriosis?

 

According to MayoClinic, Endometriosis is an often painful disorder in which tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus — the endometrium — grows outside your uterus. Endometriosis most commonly involves your ovaries, bowel or the tissue lining your pelvis. Rarely, endometrial tissue may spread beyond your pelvic region.

 

Endometriosis affects women in their reproductive years. Infertility may be the only sign that you have endometriosis. Between 20% and 40% of women who are infertile have endometriosis The exact prevalence of endometriosis is not known, since many women may have the condition and have no symptoms.

Severe menstrual cramps

Low backache 1 or 2 days before the start of the menstrual period (or earlier)
