Endometriosis is a uterine disorder characterized by the presence of endometrial tissue or plaques outside the uterus. There are various degrees depending on the lesions caused and the severity.
On the one hand, there is grade I endometriosis or minimal endometriosis where small isolated implants appear. This is the least severe type of endometriosis.
On the other hand, there is mild or grade II endometriosis. Women suffering from this degree of endometriosis have superficial endometrial plaques of less than 5 cm in size, but they do not affect other organs.
