Understanding endometriosis

Endometriosis affects roughly 10 per cent of women in their reproductive years. It is a chronic condition where tissue similar to the lining inside the uterus grows outside it, usually on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, outer surface of the uterus, and other pelvic organs. It presents a significant but often overlooked barrier to fertility, causing chronic pain and other debilitating symptoms. Studies suggest that 30-50 per cent of people with endometriosis may experience infertility.

At IFEM Endo, our holistic approach to endometriosis treatment integrates advanced medical technology with personalized patient care, ensuring complete removal of endometriosis lesions wherever they could arise, and the best outcomes for women.
