What is Endometriosis
Endometriosis is a condition whereby cells from the uterine lining (endometrium) occur and develop outside its usual position. It can occur at the back of the uterus, around the ovaries and even the bladder. Endometriosis is usually observed in women during their reproductive years and around 1 in 10 women develop this condition.
Most endometriosis patients experience no symptoms at all. However for those who experience symptoms, the common complaint is pain in the pelvis as well as infertility. Other signs and symptoms include fatigue, headaches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or constipation, fever and irregular periods.
