The hollow muscle in women known as the uterus is lined with endometrial tissue that undergoes changes during the menstrual cycle and is flushed out of the uterus during menstruation. Problems arise when endometrial tissue is found in another, unnatural place for it and it begins to develop there. It can penetrate into the interior of the muscular wall of the uterus leading to adenomyosis or endometriosis. In other cases, parts of this tissue can be found outside the uterine cavity (external endometriosis), on the ovaries, in the fallopian tubes, on the pelvic part of the colon, on the vulva, or inside the pelvic cavity.

This problem often occurs after stopping treatment, but decreases during pregnancy and usually disappears after menopause. It can be stated that this disease appears between the ages of 25 and 45 and does not lead to cancer. Both endometriosis, internal and extrauterine, can pass without any consequences, but they can also lead to infertility. The cause of this disease is not known, but it is known to be related to hormonal changes, especially with estrogen production. The daughters of women who have been prescribed synthetic estrogen during pregnancy are more prone to endometriosis.

The presence of pain, which recurs periodically, may indicate endometriosis, but it does not necessarily mean that it is endometriosis, because all women feel at least some kind of pain during menstruation. Ultrasound examination can detect large cysts on the ovaries, which we call endometriomas, the presence of which indicates a more severe stage of the disease, but this examination cannot help us in diagnosing the early stage of the disease. The only way to determine the presence of endometriosis with certainty is through surgery or laparoscopy.

Symptoms of uterine endometriosis include heavy menstrual bleeding with clots, lower back pain, pelvic bleeding, intercourse pain, and repeated bleeding between periods, leading to severe anemia.
Symptoms of ectopic endometriosis are very common pains that intensify during menstruation, dysmenorrhea, sharp pain during ovulation followed by light bleeding, sharp pains during intercourse, pain in the abdominal cavity and lower back, pain during urination, difficulty urinating sharp pains, bleeding in the abdominal cavity, copious menstruation, and bleeding between periods.
