What is bowel (GI tract) Endometriosis?

Bowel or Gastrointestinal (GI) tract Endometriosis occurs when Endometriosis is found either on the surface (known as superficial Endometriosis) or infiltrated deep inside the bowel wall and surrounding structures.


This type of Endometriosis is most commonly found affecting the lower part of the intestine (the sigmoid and rectum).


When Endometriosis is found in this area of the body, it can begin to disrupt the process of emptying the bowel.
