Endometriosis currently has no known cure and brings pain and discomfort in most patients and is the cause of infertility for many women. Individuals who suffer from endometriosis may also find they have a strained relationship as dyspareunia.

Here are some theories related to the possible causes behind endometriosis:

Some experts believe that menstrual fluid, instead of flowing out of the body, ran behind upside down into the fallopian tubes. Although the fallopian tubes and ovaries are connected, there is a small hole where retrograde menstruation can flow out to the pelvic region.

Some endometrial cells (cell line or coat the uterus) of the menstrual flow can then be attached to the body tissue found in the pelvic area, including ovarian, bladder, fallopian tubes, intestines and even colon.

Cells misplaced, believe that they are still attached to the uterine wall, swell and shed during the menstrual cycle. Unfortunately, the new shed cells cannot exit the body and get stuck in the pelvic or abdominal area that leads to painful symptoms that characterize endometriosis.
