What Is Endometriosis?
A painful reproductive disorder, Endometriosis occurs when there is an abnormal growth of Endometrial-like tissues/cells outside the uterus and on other organs inside your body, typically on the ovaries, fallopian tube, intestines and the pelvis area. Endometriosis can result in sub-fertility and can cause pelvic pain during menstruation. As a Gynaecologist in London, Mr N. Agarwal offers the best Endometriosis treatment in London based on individual signs and symptoms.
