Endometriosis, characterized by the presence of functional endometrial glands and stroma in ectopic locations outside the uterine cavity, is one of the most frequent causes of pelvic pain. Painful endometriosis-related symptoms include dysmenorrhoea, chronic pelvic pain, and deep dyspareunia.

Quality of life may be significantly decreased, and working ability, social relationships, and sexual functioning disrupted.
Despite its high prevalence and incapacitating pelvic symptoms, the exact pathogenic mechanisms of endometriosis remain unsolved. The three common theories of its causes are retrograde menstruation with subsequent implantation, coelomic metaplasia, and hematogenous or lymphatic transport of endometrial tissue. This new book discusses nutritional benefits in the treatment of pelvic endometriosis. (Imprint: Nova)
