Complex and painful, this disease manifests itself differently in each and every patient. The most common signs of ‘endometriosis’ are menstrual irregularities, pelvic pain, dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, and infertility. It is also has a psychological dimension as the disease affects social relationships, sexuality and mental health.
