Endometriosis is a painful and intrusive condition that can impact all aspects of your life. The Mayo Clinic describes endometriosis as a disorder where the tissue that
normally lines the uterus starts to grow outside of it. The displaced tissues can impact various parts of the pelvic region, including the ovaries and bowel.
The problems occur when the tissue continues to thicken and shed during the menstrual cycle. Ordinarily, it would exit the body during your period. However, the
tissue becomes trapped, which can lead to inflammation and cysts.
