Everything You Need To Know About Endometriosis

Endometrial implants are build ups of endometrial tissue that grow in locations outside the uterus.

Endometrial tissue consists of gland, blood cells, and connective tissue. It normally grows in the uterus, to prepare the lining of the womb for ovulation.

It occurs when endometrial implants, found within the uterus, are present in other areas of the body. When they grow outside the uterus, this is called endometriosis.

They can develop anywhere in the body, but they usually occur in the pelvic area.

They may affect:

  • the ovaries
  • the fallopian tubes
  • the lymph nodes

Symptoms of endometriosis may include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Long-term lower-back and pelvic pain
  • Periods lasting longer than 7 days
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding where the pad or tampon needs changing every 1 to 2 hours

It is important to see a health care provider about symptoms, to avoid future complications
