About Endometriosis

Affecting about 10% of women ages 15 to 44, endometriosis occurs when abnormal tissue forms outside of the uterus, often found on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, pelvic lining, and uterine ligaments. It rarely is found outside of the pelvic area, but it can travel elsewhere throughout the body. 

This abnormal tissue behaves similarly to the endometrium (inner uterus lining), as it thickens, breaks down, and bleeds during every menstrual period. However, the abnormal tissue has no way to exit the body, potentially resulting in the formation of cysts called endometriomas. If other healthy surrounding tissue is impacted, adhesions and scar tissue can also develop.
