Endometriosis is a painful medical condition that causes growth of endometrial tissue outside of the uterus. These collections of endometrial material fallopian tubes, vagina, bladder or the pelvic wall can cause lower abdominal pain, infertility and gastrointestinal complications. 5 million women between the ages of 25-44 are said to suffer with this condition with a resulting 30-45% chance of infertility. All of the growths are uterine tissue so they react to the menstrual cycle like all the uterus lining. This means excessive bleeding and scarring in some women.
Though we are not sure what exactly causes some women to get endometriosis though it may be associated with an imbalance of hormones in the body. Too much estrogen, specifically the stronger more potent estrogens may be the cause. There may also be an autoimmune component to this condition supported by the autoantibodies frequently found in women suffering from endometriosis.
