Endometriosis is a common painful disorder of the female reproductive system.
It affects women in their reproductive years.

Endometriosis is estimated to affect over 1 million women (estimates range from 3-18% of women) in the United States.

It is one of the leading causes of pelvic pain and reasons for laparoscopic surgery and hysterectomy in this country.

While the mean age at diagnosis is around 25-30 years, endometriosis has been reported in girls as young as 11 years of age.

Endometriosis isn't the only cause of pelvic pain.
If you're experiencing pelvic pain, see your doctor to determine whether endometriosis or another condition is the cause, and to target appropriate treatment.

Endometrial implants are generally benign (not cancerous).
