10 Symptoms of Endometriosis
Endometriosis is a disorder in which the tissues that grow within the body and line the inside of the uterus walls actually grow outside of the uterus. This condition can be fairly common, with over 200,000 cases diagnosed every year in the United States alone. These tissues that grow outside of the uterus can begin to grow along either of the intestines, the ovaries and the fallopian tubes. However, there are treatments for this condition, and they can include medications for the pain, as well as hormonal treatments and, as a last resort, surgery.
