Endometriosis is by the growth of tissue which normally lines the uterine cavity (endometrium), outside of the uterus. Endometriosis can involve the ovaries, fallopian tubes, bladder, bowel, vagina and skin surgical incision scars. On rare occasions the tissue can even implant in more distant organs such as the lung. Since endometriosis is essentially a normal tissue growing in an abnormal location, it will undergo the same changes as the tissue of the uterine lining throughout the menstrual cycle. Just like the normal endometrium, the endometriosis tissue will build up in response to ovarian estrogen hormone, then break down and shed. Unlike the normal endometrium lining the uterine cavity, the tissue and blood from endometriosis can not leave the body through the vagina, resulting in internal bleeding, inflammation and further spread of the endometriosis.
-It can lead to infertility by causing pelvic adhesions, abnormal ovulation, and interference with the ability of the fallopian tube to pick up the egg from the ovary and increase risk of miscarriage.
Symptoms:
-Pelvic pain is the most common symptom occurring just prior to or during menses.
-Painful intercourse.
-Infertility.
-Nausea, vomiting, mood swings, fatigue and diarrhea.
-Acute pain when an ovarian endometriosis cyst ruptures.
Diagonosis:
MRI,CT scan,laproscopy,Ultrasound can be used to diagnose entrometriosis.
Endometriosis treatment :
Treatment options for endometriosis depend on whether the goal is to restore fertility or improve pain symptoms.
Medical treatment
Surgical treatment

If you have endometriosis and you are hoping to conceive soon, medical or surgical treatment may not be your best choice. You should be considering ovulation induction therapy and IVF.
