Symptoms of Endometriosis

The endometrium is the tissue that typically lines the interior of the uterus. During menstruation, the endometrium breaks down and bleeds, which is completely normal. But with a case of endometriosis, the endometrium tissue actually grows outside the uterus.
The tissue can extend and grow on the ovaries, bowel, pelvis and beyond. This can lead to many complications.

Symptoms of endometriosis include:

Due to the fluctuating nature of the endometrium, no two cases of endometriosis are the same. Some people experience just one of these symptoms, while others may deal with many of them.

Endometriosis can either be a minor condition or major one, depending on how much endometrium has spread to other parts of the body.
