Endometriosis - minimally invasive treatment
Endometriosis is a benign, chronic disease in which the uterine lining (endometrium) exits the uterus and implants itself in so-called endometriosis spots in the abdominal region. The endometriosis spots respond to hormonal influences just like the uterine lining. They grow during the menstrual cycle and bleed during menstruation.
It is estimated that 8-15% of all sexually mature women are affected. One in two women with an unfulfilled desire to have children is suffering from endometriosis.
Since the disease is relatively complex and unknown, years often pass before it is recognized.
