What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis is an often painful disorder in which tissue that normally lines the walls of your uterus — the endometrium — grows outside your uterus. Endometriosis most commonly involves your ovaries, fallopian tubes and the tissue lining your pelvis.

Symptoms of endometriosis

  • Painful sexual intercourse.
  • Cramping during intercourse.
  • Cramping or pain during bowel movements or urination.
  • Infertility.
  • Pain with pelvic examinations.
