Women frequently learn that they have endometriosis only after seeking help for in-fertility.
Two women who are having trouble getting pregnant may both have the condition, but it can manifest itself very differently.
One woman may have abdominal pain, lower back pain, pain with intercourse, irregular bleeding, or diarrhea and constipation, while another may have no symptoms.
For more information on endometriosis, contact the The Endometriosis Association. Support and information on in-fertility is available from Resolve.

What to Do When the Doctor Says It's Endometriosis: Everything You Need to Know to Stop the Pain and Heal Your Fertility
-- Endometriosis can disrupt women's lives. It is responsible for chronic, sometimes crippling pain, hundreds of thousands of missed work hours, and in its most extreme cases, in-fertility.
There is hope! Thomas L. Lyons, M.D., whose philosophy is to "treat the patient, not the disease," has developed leading edge surgical techniques to address endometriosis.
Dr. Lyons demystifies this puzzling disease, covering issues from fertility to dietary concerns, alternative treatments to surgical options but the main focus is on the key issue of pain management for this potentially debilitating disease.
