Many cases of severe abdominal menstrual cramps are often found to be caused by endometriosis.In patients with menses cramps it is always advisable for them to go for a complete gynecological examination to determine the cause so a referral to a gynecologist is always a must.Endometriosis is a disorder of the endometrial tissues (which line a womans uterus) in which these tissues are implanted in places outside the uterus, usually in other parts of the pelvic cavity and abdomen.However, in women with Endometriosis, blood from the implanted endometrial tissue is trapped inside, becomes inflamed, and develops into scar tissue.Because of this inflammation, severe pain, infertility and bowel problems occur.TABLE OF CONTENTIntroductionChapter 1 EndometriosisChapter 2 Interesting Facts about EndometriosisChapter 3 Myths about EndometriosisChapter 4 Pelvic Inflammatory DiseasesChapter 5 Uterine fibroidsChapter 6 Dymenorrhea
