Endometriosis: All You Need To Know

Olivia Jolly*

Endometriosis (en-doe-me-tree-O-sis) is a painful condition in which tissue that looks like the endometrium that normally lines the inside of your uterus grows outside of it. Endometriosis affects your ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the tissue lining your pelvic most commonly. Endometrial-like tissue can occasionally be detected outside of the pelvic organs' region. With endometriosis, the endometrial-like tissue swells break down, and bleeds with each menstrual cycle, much like endometrial tissue would. However, because this tissue can't leave your body, it becomes imprisoned. Endometriomas are cysts that occur when endometriosis affects the ovaries. Surrounding tissue can become inflamed, leading to scar tissue and adhesions – fibrous bands that can cause pelvic tissues and organs to cling together. Endometriosis can cause considerable pain, particularly during menstrual periods. Fertility issues may also arise. Effective treatments are, fortunately, available
