Is endometriosis a common disease?

Endometriosis is not a rare disease. We commonly treat patients who are diagnosed with this condition.

Endometriosis is a relatively common disease. Statistically, it affects one in 10 women who are in their reproductive years. The "reproductive years" are also called the menstruating years and they refer to the period between the woman’s first menstruation and her menopause.

If you’ve been diagnosed with endometriosis, you need to consult a specialist. This disease causes pain and it requires intervention. Our doctors have wide experience in treating women with this condition and they can offer you the most appropriate course of treatment.
