Endometriosis is a medical condition where the tissue lining the uterus, known as the endometrium, is found growing in other regions outside the uterus such as the fallopian tubes, the pelvis or even the ovaries. The endometrium lining breaks down during menstruation and when the same happens to the tissue that grows outside the uterus it results in cysts, severe cramps, painful and heavy periods and even infertility. It is a very rampant condition and nearly 5 million women in the United States alone suffer from endometriosis.
The true number of cases is higher though as there are usually no symptoms associated with the condition. The most common symptom of endometriosis are painful periods, in some cases they can be severely painful while other symptoms include pelvic pain, pain during urination or while passing bowels, excessive bleeding and infertility. You can also experience nausea, diarrhoea and constipation with peaks during menstruation.
