Endometriosis is a chronic condition that affects over 2 million women in the UK. It occurs when the tissue lining the uterus is found outside the uterus.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition, so although the symptoms can be controlled through treatment, it cannot be completely cured.

Endometriosis does affect fertility. It is still possible to conceive, but only using fertility treatments.
