What Is Endometriosis?

Did you know that approximately 176 million women worldwide suffer from endometriosis? In this video, we take a closer look at the causes, symptoms, and treatment options available for women with endometriosis.

This condition occurs when the cells lining the uterus are found outside of the uterine cavity, often along the ovaries, bowels, and pelvis. These cells grow and bleed each month, resulting in inflammation, scar tissue development, and adhesions. Women with endometriosis often suffer from pain before and during their periods, painful intercourse, pelvic pain, and chronic fatigue. Watch the clip to learn how endometriosis is diagnosed and treated.
