Endometriosis pain

Endometriosis is a disorder in which the tissues normally present inside the uterus, start growing in other parts of the body. Endometriosis most commonly occurs in other organs of the pelvic and reproductive organs — the ovaries, the exterior parts of the uterus, fallopian tubes. During the menstrual cycle, the hormonal changes in your body break down the tissues, which can cause you immense pain. It can also cause long-term painful adhesions or scar tissue during your periods. However, there are some effective methods by which one can minimise menstrual pain owing to endometriosis.
