Endometriosis is a disorder involving the endometrium, the tissue that lines the uterus. The endometrium is the tissue that, throughout the menstrual cycle thickens, breaks down and bleeds.
In endometriosis, endometrial tissue, distributed by unknown mechanisms to other locations in the body (e.g., fallopian tubes, ovaries, pelvic lining) continues to act according to it’s normal cycle. If located outside the uterus, blood from endometrial bleeding has no exit from the body. Trapped blood irritates surrounding tissue, and may lead to cysts, scars and adhesion of nearby organs. Endometriosis may impair fertility.
