It is best experienced by the woman herself and best understood by the gynecologist who treats her. It is a monthly ordeal for the woman suffering from endometriosis. Endometriosis develops due to the ectopic presence of endometrial tissues which line the inside of the uterus at places other than the uterus.

Apart from causing pain; endometriosis can lead to difficulties in getting pregnant; and also other long-term diseases in a few women like kidney, bowel, or nerve damage. Medicines may help at times but they may not solve the problems completely.
