Endometriosis happens when the tissue of the uterine lining mistakenly travels outside the uterus. This tissue can then cause cysts, scar tissue, and excess tissue growth, leading to pain and discomfort.
If you have endometriosis, you may have the following symptoms:
- Pain during sex
- Pain during bowel movements
- Pain when urinating
- Heavy cramping during periods
Although these symptoms can be overwhelming and affect your quality of life, treatment by an expert practitioner can target and reduce both the root cause of your endometriosis and the symptoms.
