What is endometriosis?
Endometriosis is a common condition in young women. It’s chronic, painful, and it often progressively gets worse over the time. Normally, the tissue that lines a woman’s uterus, known as the endometrium, is found only in the uterus. But when a woman develops endometriosis, microscopic bits of this tissue escape from the uterus and grow on other organs such as the ovaries, the outer wall of the uterus, the ligaments that support the uterus, and the space between the uterus and the rectum. In rare cases, they can spread outside the abdomen and grow on other organs, such as the lungs.
