Endometriosis affects an estimated one in 10 women, but despite being one of the most common gynecologic disorders in America, there is a lack of awareness and prioritization of endometriosis as an important women’s health issue.
Endometriosis occurs when tissue similar to that normally found in the uterus (endometrium) begins to grow outside of the uterus. These misplaced growths are called lesions. The lesions can grow on the ovaries, fallopian tubes and other areas around the pelvis. This may lead to long-term pelvic pain (during or between periods), pain with sex and other painful symptoms.
