What is Endometriosis?
Endometriosis is when uterine lining grows outside the uterus. This does not always cause symptoms and is usually not dangerous, but it can cause pain, abnormal bleeding, and infertility. The lining acts like the uterine lining inside the uterus, building up as it prepares for a fertilized egg, but breaking down when a fertilized egg is not present. However, because endometriosis is outside the uterus, the blood cannot flow out and irritates the lining, sometimes causing scars. Some women do not know they have endometriosis until they are unable to get pregnant. If you believe there is a chance you have endometriosis, do not hesitate to set up an appointment with your physician for an examination.
Is it normal to bleed between periods?
If you find that you are bleeding outside of your normal menstruation period, then it could be a result of Abnormal Uterine Bleeding. This type of bleeding is usually caused by hormonal problems. Talk to your doctor.

I loved that my doctor worked so closely with myself and my husband during the trauma of miscarriages, a difficult/high-risk pregnancy and birth, and our search for the right specialist for some difficult surgery.
