Endometriosis

Defined as the presence of endometrial-like tissue outside the endometrial cavity, endometriosis is a common condition. Estimates of 1 in 10 New Zealand girls and women, transgender or non-binary female assigned at birth are expected to have endometriosis in their reproductive years.
