Endometriosis is painful disorder of the lining of the uterus, wherein the tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus starts to outside of the uterus. Endometriosis most commonly involves your ovaries, fallopian tubes and the tissue lining your pelvis. In some very are cases the endometriosis tissue may spread beyond pelvic organs as well.

The symptoms associated with endometriosis include:

  • Dysmenorrhea
  • Painful intercourse
  • Difficulty in passing stools
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Infertility

The exact cause of endometriosis is yet unknown but some of the possible causes can be enumerated as:

  • Revere flow of menstrual blood
  • Embryonic cell transformation
  • Scars caused by surgical implantation
  • Disorders of the immune system
  • Malfunction of peritoneal cells

Treatment for endometriosis is a twin pronged procedure with clinical intervention and a possible surgery for extreme cases. The mode of treatment is based on the severity of symptoms are and whether you wish to become pregnant in the future. For patients with endometriosis but are trying to become pregnant, the surgery will remove the endometriosis tissue while preserving the uterus and ovaries. If you have severe pain from endometriosis, you may also benefit from surgery — however, the endometriosis and pain may return eventually return.
