Endometriosis simply explained
Endometriosis makes tissue grow where it doesn’t belong.
For example outside the uterus. This tissue can inflame. This can be very painful.
Sometimes these inflammations can also start to bleed.
Endometriosis often causes pain:
in the (lower) abdomen
in the back and down
to the legs
when on the toilet and/or
Some people with endometriosis can’t get pregnant.
Endometriosis can strongly differ from case to case.
That is why it is also called the chameleon of gynecology.
If you have such pain, contact your doctor!
