Most women will have heard of endometriosis but what is it exactly?
Well, it’s a painful condition where tissue in the body that acts like the endometrium (the lining of the womb) is found outside the uterus. Basically, this tissue is somewhere it’s not meant to be. It can end up in the ovaries and fallopian tubes, inside the lining of the abdomen and even in the bowel or bladder. Endometriosis affects roughly one in 10 women of reproductive age, which equates to approximately 176 million females around the world .
