Description: Medicine for the Public 2002 Lecture Series

Endometriosis is a common gynecologic disease. Tissue resembling the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus, usually on the pelvic organs. Some women find out they have endometriosis when they have trouble becoming pregnant. Others with endometriosis have pelvic pain with their menstrual periods or with sex. The pain may be so severe that it impacts on their quality of life, affecting their intimate relationships and day-to-day activities. Some women don’t have any symptoms from endometriosis. The treatments for endometriosis are tailored to the woman’s symptoms. Women with infertility may benefit from surgery or other assisted reproductive techniques.
