Doctors Response:

Endometriosis is known for itz severe pain it causes during menses (dysmenorrhea). It is also causes pain on micturition (dysuria), pain during sexual intercourse (dyspareunia) and pain on defecation (dyschezia). It is also associated with heavy menstrual flow (menorrhagia). When it affects the ovaries it causes endometrioma and this may prevent egg release from the ovaries causing infertility. You will need to consult a gynaecologist and a fertility specialist for objective assignment and proper management.
