Endometriosis

Endometriosis (endo) is a puzzling hormonal and immune disease affecting girls and women from as young as eight to postmenopause. In endo, tissue like the endometrium (the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus and builds up and sheds each month in the menstrual cycle) is found outside the uterus, in other area of the body. In these locations outside the uterus, the endometrial tissue develops into what are called "nodules," "tumors," "lesions," "implants," or "growths." These growths can cause pain, infertility, and other problems.
