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.

Causes of Endometriosis

Like many other women's health issues, such as uterine fibroids, the exact cause of endometriosis is not known. That being said, there are many contributing factors to the condition.

Some of the leading causes of endometriosis include:

Of these scenarios, most endometriosis is caused by retrograde menstruation. Endometriosis is treatable with a variety of different methods.

Endometriosis Treatment

Endometriosis treatment comes in many different forms. Types of endometriosis treatment include:

The correct method of treatment depends on the root cause and the severity of the individual case of endometriosis.
