Endometriosis causes swelling and painScientists have identified a possible cause of the painful womb condition endometriosis.

The team at the University of Liverpool believe over-production of an enzyme, telomerase, which plays a role in cell division may be responsible.

Endometriosis results in patches of the womb's inner lining growing in other parts of the body.

It is hoped the Human Reproduction study may lead to new ways to diagnose and treat the condition.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
