Endometriosis is a condition in which tissues like those which line the uterus are found outside the uterus.These misplaced tissues develop into growths or lesions which respond to the menstrual cycle: each month the tissues build up, break down, and shed. Menstrual blood flows from the uterus and out of the body through the vagina, but the blood and tissue shed from endometrial growths have no way of leaving the body. This results in internal bleeding which can cause pain, infertility, scar tissue formation, adhesions, and bowel problems.
