Why is endometriosis painful?
“Endometriosis growths may swell and bleed in the same way the lining inside of your uterus does every month,” the experts at OASH began.
“This can cause swelling and pain because the tissue grows and bleeds in an area where it cannot easily get out of your body.”
The growths can block the Fallopian tubes, cause inflammation in the body, and scar tissue can form.
Adhesions might also occur, which is when tissue binds the organs together inside of the body.
