A woman’s uterus is lined by tissue, called the endometrium. In endometriosis, this tissue grows in other places of the body, such as the ovaries, bladder or bowels.
Symptoms of endometriosis include:
- Severe pain in the stomach and pelvic areas.
- Heavy and/or painful periods.
- Pain during or after sex.
Endometriosis can cause painful complications such as abnormal uterine bleeding. Watch the video below to learn more about how abnormal uterine cramps can be diagnosed and treated.
