Endometriosis is a progressive disease which affects over 174 million women worldwide. In women with this condition, the endometrial tissue lining the inside of the uterus grows outside the uterus and attaches to other abdominal cavity organs such as the fallopian tubes or ovaries. Symptoms often include abnormal and painful menstrual bleeding, pain during or after sexual intercourse and infertility.
While endometriosis is incurable and can reoccur after treatment, Reproductive Science Center of New Jersey (RSCNJ) doctors can offer care to minimize pain and achieve pregnancy. Our physicians will determine the best treatment plan for you according to the stage of endometriosis. This may include medication or surgery, or a combination of both.
