Anatomy of a Uterus

    A uterus comprises three layers, which are:

    • The innermost layer is called the endometrium. It comprises glandular cells that perform secretory functions. Bleeding occurs from here,
    • The second layer outside the endometrium is called the myometrium. It is made up of muscles and is present in the middle of the other two layers.
    • The perimetrium is the uterus’s outermost serous layer. Because it secretes a lubricating fluid that reduces friction, it is known as a serous layer.

    So, when the innermost layer, endometrium, grows beyond its normal boundaries, it is termed endometriosis. It can grow anywhere in the reproductive system and cause complications accordingly.

    Let’s understand where endometrium can occur.

      Where does endometriosis occur?

      An endometrium lining can grow anywhere in and around the uterus. This includes:

      1. Growth of endometrium in the muscle layer inside the uterus. It is medically known as adenomyosis.
      2. Secondly, it grows on ovaries present outside the uterus in most cases. It is known as ‘chocolate cyst ‘. When menstrual blood gets collected in the body, its color changes to brown. It is why it is named a chocolate cyst.
      3. The next location for endometrial outgrowth is behind the uterus (rectum tube), known as deep endometriosis.
      4. Fourth, endometrium overgrowth can happen in the vaginal canal that causes a lot of pain during intercourse.
      5. Last, the endometrium lining can occur in the body through fallopian tubes. Instead of flowing out of the body, blood comes into the body through the fallopian tubes. As a result, this is a significant problem for infertility.

      No matter where the endometriosis outgrows, it causes a few complications.
