What is Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a common condition where tissue that behaves like the lining of the womb (endometrium) is found in other parts of the body including the ovaries, fallopian tubes and in or around the bladder or bowel.

What are the most common symptoms of Endometriosis?

One of the most common signs of Endometriosis is period pains or painful intercourse, which might be the result of inflammation of the pelvic organs. Other symptoms include feeling sick, constipation, diarrhoea, or difficulty getting pregnant.

What are the different stages of Endometriosis?

There are several degrees of Endometriosis from very mild to moderate to severe. It can be treated through medicines or surgery, either of which can help patients conceive either naturally or through IVF.
