What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus, typically on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, or other pelvic organs. This can cause pain, inflammation, and infertility. Symptoms of endometriosis can include painful periods, pain during intercourse, and chronic pelvic pain. 

When is it necessary to see a doctor?

If you experience painful periods, chronic pelvic pain, painful intercourse, or infertility, it's time to see a doctor for an endometriosis evaluation. A doctor can perform diagnostic tests such as ultrasounds or laparoscopies and recommend treatment options such as medication, surgery, or hormone therapy to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life. Treatment for endometriosis can include medication to manage symptoms, surgery to remove the endometrial tissue, and hormone therapy to suppress the growth of the tissue.
