What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a common condition that affects women during their child-bearing years. It occurs when cells that line the womb grow in areas outside the womb. These cells grow and shed in response to hormones that regulate a woman's menstrual cycle. This can lead to tissue growths and scarring around organs in the lower abdomen.
