Endometriosis 101


Learn the basics with Dr. Chen
March is Endometriosis Awareness Month and although this disease has been in the news recently, many people don’t know exactly what it is! This disease occurs when the cells from the lining of the uterus, or the endometrium, grow outside of the uterus causing inflammation. The symptoms can be severe and range from pain to infertility. Although we don’t know what causes it, we do know that it is prevalent and impacts up to 15% of women. Watch Dr. Serena H. Chen, MD, Reproductive Endocrinologist IRMS Reproductive Medicine of Saint Barnabas explain the basic facts surrounding this common disease.
