Endometriosis: The Basics

Endometriosis is a chronic condition where tissue similar to the uterine lining grows outside the uterus. It causes pain, especially during menstruation, and potentially affects fertility. Symptoms include heavy periods, pelvic pain, and discomfort during sex. Although its exact cause is unknown, risk factors include genetics and hormonal imbalances. Diagnosis often requires laparoscopic surgery. While there's no cure, treatments like medication and surgery can help manage symptoms.
