Endometriosis occurs when endometrial tissue grows outside of where it's supposed to grow.

Common symptoms: Very painful cramps or periods, heavy periods, chronic pelvic pain (which includes lower back pain and pelvic pain), intestinal pain, pain during or after sex, and infertility.

In other words, it freaking hurts. Here are some questions not to ask.
