Painful periods, heavy menstrual bleeding and pain during defecation -- all symptoms suggestive of the notoriously painful uterine lining disorder called endometriosis.

Affecting up to one in 10 women, you probably know someone -- a sister, aunt or friend -- who suffers from these crippling cramps.

What you may not know about endometriosis, however, is it is a leading cause of infertility.

The relationship between endometriosis and infertility is a little confusing.

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.
