Endometriosis is a female reproductive disorder in which endometrial layer is present outside the uterus. Endometrium is the innermost lining of the uterus. It becomes thick during each menstrual cycle, then breaks down and bleeds out during each menstrual cycle. In endometriosis, this tissue grows in fallopian tubes, ovaries and pelvic wall. The tissue can be found beyond the pelvis also. The tissue lining the uterine cavity flows outside the body during menstrual bleeding but the tissue present in the other organs becomes trapped. It has no way to exit the body.
Endometriosis is a painful condition in which there occurs heavy menstrual bleeding. There can be fertility problems also. When the tissue is present in ovaries, cysts like structures called endometriomas are formed. Nodules, adhesions and scar tissue also form in tissues. There are various types of treatment options available for it.
