Endometriosis is a painful condition in which tissues lining the inside of the uterus grows outside this area. This often occurs in the pelvis or lower abdomen, but can also appear anywhere in your body. The symptoms can vary from person to person. Some women might suffer from many symptoms, while others just have infertility. Sometimes, they might find it difficult and vague to pinpoint the issues. To help you understand more and identify the disease early, we’ll show the top 10 endometriosis symptoms.

Pelvic pain

Under the effect of the disorder, your endometrium or uterine lining cells will grow outside of the uterus. This makes those parts close to the uterus such as reproductive organs, abdomen, and pelvis vulnerable to the growth and causes painful feel. About 1 out of 5 women who have endometriosis might experience pelvic pain during their cycles, and not only throughout menstruation. It can be difficult to describe pelvic pain in endometriosis. Rather than just bad cramps, it is the kind of pain which even OTC medicine will not resolve. Keep in mind that the amount of pain you have doesn’t correlate to the severity of the condition. For example, you could experience mild endometriosis and severe pelvic pain or severe endometriosis and mild pelvic pain. [1]
