Endometriosis causes the lining of the uterus (the endometrium) to grow outside of the uterus. This lining continues to act as normal — growing thicker, and then shedding and bleeding during your period. This can be painful if the blood and shed lining get caught in your pelvis. Endometriosis can also cause long and heavy periods, pain during intercourse, or pain when using the restroom.
When you have endometriosis, you want compassionate care from an expert team. The obstetricians and gynecologists at University of Miami Health can help diagnose and treat your condition.
