Many women have endometriosis, a painful, common chronic condition that occurs when tissue that resembles the endometrium or uterine lining is discovered outside of the uterus, often attached to other organs in the pelvic region.
Although women may be asymptomatic, most women typically present with pelvic pain, infertility, or an adnexal mass.
You may be able to conceive with fertility treatment depending on the degree to which your endometriosis affects your fertility.
Risk factors for endometriosis:
- Family history
