WHAT IS ENDOMETRIOSIS?
Endometriosis (en-doe-me-tree-O-sis) is an often extremely painful disorder in which tissue similar to the lining inside the uterus grows outside of it instead. Endometriosis most commonly affects the ovaries, fallopian tubes and the tissue lining the pelvis. Sometimes, endometrial-like tissue may be found elsewhere in the body -- as far away as the brain.
On average, endometriosis takes a decade to diagnose. It affects 1 in 10 people who menstruate worldwide (not just women!). There are treatments, but there is no cure.
