Please help in our efforts by making a donation. Thank you! What is Endometriosis? Endometriosis (en-doe-me-tree-O-sis) is a disease in which tissue like the endometrium (the lining inside the uterus which builds up and sheds each month during menstruation) migrates outside the uterus to other areas of the body. These implants continue to break down and bleed; the result is internal bleeding, degeneration of blood and tissue shed from the growths, inflammation of the surrounding areas, and formation of adhesions and scar tissue. Endometriosis is a painful disease and contrary to popular belief - endometriosis has been documented in nearly every location of the body, a few of those locations being the ovaries, colon, bladder, intestines, liver, heart, brain, sciatic nerve, lungs and even the skin and eyes. Endometriosis can cause severe and irreversible organ failure and can lead to serious medical consequences if inadequately treated. It is estimated that at least 200 million women and young girls have endometriosis - 1 in 8 women, thats double the amount of women affected by breast cancer. Despite being one of the most common reasons for chronic pelvic and abdominal pain, endometriosis is a widely misunderstood disease that can strike women of any socioeconomic class, age or race.
