Endometriosis is a debilitating disease that effects one in 10 women.
Endometriosis is present when tissue that is similar to the endometrium lining of the uterus occurs
outside this layer in other areas of the body. This layer of tissue is what is shed each month with menstruation or where a pregnancy settles and grows. The most notable symptoms of endometriosis are pain and infertility, and while there are treatments available, there is no known cure (Endometriosis Australia, 2018).
