Endometriosis Endometriosis - NICE CKS Clinical Knowledge Summaries Share Endometriosis - Summary Endometriosis is the presence of tissue resembling endometrial glands and stroma outside the uterine cavity, which induces a chronic inflammatory reaction. It is often associated with dysmenorrhoea, pelvic pain, and subfertility. Most deposits occur in the pelvis, and this ectopic tissue is oestrogen-dependent and responds to the hormonal changes of the menstrual cycle. If the ovaries are affected (...) , ovarian cysts (endometriomas) may develop. Subfertility may be due to distortion of pelvic anatomy due to adhesions or endometriomas, or disturbance of reproductive processes. Endometriosis is most commonly diagnosed in women between 30 and 40 years of age, and is uncommon in those younger than 20 years of age. The following signs and symptoms may indicate the presence of endometriosis. Symptoms typically start after several years of painless periods. Cyclical or chronic pelvic pain, usually before
