It is of common practice most women disregard and ignore such condition believing it is but natural for women to endure during one’s period. When a woman’s menstrual cycle loses its regularity and the cramps is punctured with severe pain in one’s lower back or a persisting pain during bowel movement or sexual intercourse, one could be suffering from endometriosis and infertility could just be around the corner.

According to medical research, endometriosis is a condition in which the endometrial tissue, a lining inside the uterus grows outside and attaches itself to other organs or parts of the abdominal cavity, particularly to ovaries and fallopian tubes. As the condition progresses, it results to bleeding, scarring and thickening of the tissue as it imitates the menstrual cycle and the blood discharges has nowhere else to go but result to form masses or cysts around the ovaries or the fallopian tubes. Thus, a blockade of the fallopian tubes resulting to non-ovulation of the egg will lead to infertility.

With the advancement of medical science and technology there are now options available to remedy and correct endometriosis and infertility.
