Endometriosis happens when tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of the uterus in places it doesn't belong. Common places tissue grows are the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the supporting ligaments of the uterus. Endometriosis is common, but it's difficult to diagnose because its symptoms are so similar to other conditions.

Symptoms of Endometriosis
Talk to your doctor if you experience:
- Chronic pain in the lower back and pelvis
- Diarrhea, constipation, bloating, or nausea, especially during periods
- Frequent bleeding or spotting between periods
- Intestinal pain
- Pain during or after sex
- Painful bowel movements
- Pain when urinating during your period
- Very painful menstrual cramps
You’ll appreciate physicians that take time to listen and ask questions. Expect a treatment plan geared toward your body and your needs. Your treatment may include medication, physical therapy, surgery or a combination of treatments.
As you mature, want to get pregnant, or reach menopause, your treatment plan may change. In some cases, the best treatment is no treatment at all.
