Endometriosis Awareness takes place around the world during the month of March to bring attention to a disease that affects around 176 million women globally.

Endometriosisis a painful condition where the cells of the uterine lining (endometrium), which shed during a woman’s monthly menses, are found in the abdominal cavity, causing an inflammatory response that often leaves women in pain. The discarded scar tissue can affect the fallopian tubes, thus interfering with ovulation and causing infertility. Endometriosis may also invade the ovary and form ovarian cysts called endometriomas that can decrease egg quality, alter ovulation and increase pelvic pain.

While there is no cure for the condition, doctors at RSC New Jersey can treat endometriosis to minimize pain and discomfort and help to achieve pregnancy.

To learn more about receiving treatment for endometriosis or becoming pregnant with the condition, contact us or request an appointment at one of our three locations.
