What happens to the endometrium during menstruation?

The endometrium is a thin layer that lines a woman's uterus. When a woman's menstruation arrives, the endometrium detaches and causes the bleeding. On the other hand, if fertilization occurs and the embryo is formed, it will remain attached to the endometrium and begin to develop.

Women with endometriosis have endometrial tissue growth in other locations outside the uterus, either in the ovaries, tubes, etc. during the menstrual cycle. This has consequences when trying to get pregnant since it complicates the fertilization of the egg and the sperm.
