Endometriosis is a gynaecological condition where tissue similar to the lining of the womb, grows in other areas of the body, most commonly on the ovaries. This tissue responds to hormones in the same way as the lining of the womb but with no outlet it can cause inflammation, scarring and adhesions, leading to severe pain and many other symptoms.
