What is Endometriosis?

The uterus is a sac-like organ present in the pelvic region of all females.

Endometrium is a normal lining of mucus membrane within the uterus. Normally, at every menstrual cycle, the endometrium thickens to form a bed for the embryo, in case pregnancy occurs. When there is no pregnancy, this endometrium sheds during menstruation or periods.

But sometimes, due to abnormal immune or hormonal response, the endometrium starts growing outside the uterine cavity, and the condition is called Endometriosis. Read more about Causes of Endometriosis.

Putting it simply, Endometriosis happens when lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus.

The uterus is under the influence of the hormones, Estrogen and Progesterone, and these hormones cause cyclical changes in the cells of the endometrium. This means that the endometrial cells present outside the uterus also respond in a similar manner to the hormones, and here is where the trouble actually is!

It is nightmare to deal with the Endometriosis. Additionally there is severe frustration and pain. It also adds up infertility risks and many other complications.
