About 77 million women worldwide suffer from endometriosis, which is a condition in which endometrial cells (uterine cells) are located outside the uterus, especially in the ovaries, fallopian tubes, intestines, or even the bladder.
In rare cases, endometrial cells also attach to the lungs, eyes and even the brain. Although many women suffer from this disease, the cause of endometriosis is still not clear.

There is currently no cure for endometriosis and it causes pain and discomfort in most people. This is a cause of infertility for many women. People who have endometriosis also may experience relationship strain because of dyspareunia, the medical term for a painful relationship.
Some experts believe that instead of flowing out of the body, menstrual fluid flows back up into the fallopian tubes. Although the fallopian tube and ovary are connected, there is a small opening through which retrograde menstruation can drain into the pelvic area.
Some endometrial cells (cells that cover or cover the uterus) from the menstrual flow can then attach to body tissues in the pelvic area, including the ovaries, bladder, fallopian tubes, intestines, and even the large intestine.
These misplaced cells, believing that they are still attached to the lining of the uterus, swell and leak out during a future menstrual cycle. Unfortunately, the newly released cells cannot leave the body and become stuck in the pelvic area or abdomen, causing the painful symptoms that characterize endometriosis.
