Endometriosis can have a huge impact on daily life due to chronic pain, infertility, interference with relationships, work and more. Each year in March, people from around the world come together during Endometriosis Awareness Month to educate and advocate for faster diagnoses and treatment.
Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue similar toendometrial tissue, which normally lines the uterus, develops outside of the uterine cavity in other parts of the body. This tissue is most commonly found on the ovaries or fallopian tubes, but in some cases can be found on the bowels, liver, lungs or diaphragm. It can cause pain and adhesions (scar tissue) on the organs that it touches.
