What is Endometriosis?
Endometriosis is a common gynecological disease in which tissue that normally lines the womb (uterus) grows in other areas of the body, causing pain and irregular bleeding. Women with endometriosis can also have difficulty conceiving. Although it is common — an estimated 2 to 10 percent of women of reproductive age have endometriosis — it is a chronic disease without a known cure. See Symptoms and Causes for more information.)
Fortunately, effective treatments and surgeries are available at UC San Diego Health.
