Endometriosis Journals

The uterus has a lining called the endometrium. Endometriosis is a condition in which the this tissue grows on the outside of the uterus, and sometimes on other parts of the body – including the ovaries, the fallopian tubes, and sometimes the bowel as well. The presence of this lining outside of the uterus can cause severe pain during periods. For some women, the pain may be so severe that they are incapacitated by it for the entire duration of their period. Endometriosis occurs among women who are in their reproductive age – it is very likely to occur at the beginning of a woman's reprodudtcive years, with symptoms intensifying gradually. However, for many women, the diagnosis may occur only after years due to several reasons: the taboo around speaking about menstruation, or the lack of awareness about what is 'normal' and what requires medical intervention.
