The Endometriosis Diagnosis Information Page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and the Endometriosis Foundation of America. It is intended to provide information on endometriosis and to help those with endometriosis find assistance paying for their medications.
According to the Endometriosis Foundation of America, endometriosis is a disease of the female reproductive system that affects 1 in 10 women of childbearing age. Endometriosis occurs when tissue similar to the endometrium (the lining of the uterus) is found outside of the uterus on other body parts such in the pelvic cavity and occasionally elsewhere. Although symptoms will vary depending on where the endometriosis lesions are growing, often women can experience pelvic pain, extreme menstrual cramps, painful intercourse and a heavier menstrual flow. It is worth noting that endometriosis can cause infertility. Please visit the Diagnosis Information Page for Infertility for more information and a list of commonly prescribed infertility medications.
