Endometriosis occurs deep inside the uterus.
Endometriosis occurs when endometrial cells similar to those that form the inside of the uterus grow in an abnormal location outside of the uterus. These areas are called endometriosis implants. Endometriosis implants are most commonly found on the ovaries, Fallopian tubes, and on the outer surface of the uterus or intestines.
The word endometriosis comes from the word “endometrium”— endo means “inside” and metrium (pronounced mee-tree-um) means “mother.” Health care professionals use this term to refer to the tissue that lines the inside of the endometrium.
