More than 5 million women and girls in the U.S. are affected by endometriosis. Endometriosis is a painful disease in which endometrial-like tissue is found outside the uterus, in other areas of the body. It results in a sustained, inflammatory reaction, development of painful cysts, scarring and fibrosis, formation of painful adhesions and much more.
There is also often impairment or distortion of anatomy. Endometriosis typically develops on the pelvic structures, but can be found even in remote locations like the lungs and diaphragm. Common symptoms include pain before, during or after menstruation, dysfunction of the bowel or bladder, GI or urinary distress, painful sex, pregnancy loss and infertility, and much more. The significant and disruptive symptoms of endometriosis may worsen and become chronic over time as the disease becomes deeper and more fibrotic.
Annual costs to society associated with endometriosis are estimated at a staggering $119 billion in just the United States. Researchers remain unsure as to what causes the disease, but current science implicates stem cells, genetics and dysfunctional immune activity. Many believe endometriosis results from a combination of many factors. Unfortunately, there is no cure for the disease. However, through proper education and treatment, woman and girls can have some normalcy in their lives.
