What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a condition in which cells from the lining of the uterus appear and flourish outside the uterine cavity. The uterine cavity is lined with endometrial cells, which are under the influence of female hormones. Endometrial cells in areas outside the uterus are also influenced by hormonal changes. Symptoms of it are pain and infertility. It can be treated but can't be cured.
