Typical symptoms of endometriosis!!!
 

Endometriosis is a common painful medical condition that affects approximately 89 million women of reproductive age around the world.
The inner lining of the uterus is known as endometrium. Endometriosis occurs when uterine tissue grows outside of the uterus, commonly in the ovaries or fallopian tubes.

Normally, the endometrium is shed each month during the menstrual cycle; however, in endometriosis, the misplaced endometrium is usually unable to exit the body. The endometriotic tissues still detach and bleed and as a result may cause internal bleeding, degenerated blood and tissue shedding, inflammation of the surrounding areas, pain, and formation of scar tissue.

The womenshealth.gov website mentions these Typical symptoms of endometriosis:

  • Abdominal, lower back, or pelvic pain during menstruation or prior to it.
  • Bleeding or spotting between periods.
  • Pain in the intestines, bloating, constipation or diarrhoea.
  • Pain during or just after sexual intercourse.
  • Pain during a bowel movement.
  • Infertility.
