Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition that occurs when cells similar to those that line the uterus are found in other parts of the body.

It most commonly occurs in the pelvis and can affect a woman's reproductive organs. Causes, symptoms, diagnosis and the options to manage and treat endometriosis, including lifestyle, pain-relief medications, hormone therapy and different types of surgery, are all discussed here.

Often women have questions about the effect of endometriosis on their bladder and bowel, fertility, emotional health and relationships. Knowing where to go for advice and support is important. Reading and listening to the personal stories of women who have endometriosis is helpful, too, particularly in reminding you of the importance of not giving up hope.
