Conditions Overview

Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are noncancerous tumors that originate in the smooth muscle cells inside the wall of the uterus. Incredibly common, about 30% of women will develop fibroids by age 35, and about 70-80% will do so by age 50. Fibroids can cause heavy bleeding during a woman’s period, abdominal pain, infertility and a variety of other symptoms. Learn more.


Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women worldwide. It occurs when the endometrial cells, or uterine lining cells, exist outside of the uterus. Common symptoms include pelvic pain, long and heavy periods, low back pain and more. Learn more.

Ovarian Cyst

An ovarian cyst is an accumulation of fluid within an ovary that is surrounded by a thin “shell” and can be as small as a pea or become so large that a woman looks pregnant. Occurring most frequently during a woman’s reproductive years, ovarian cysts can cause pain and bleeding and may be an early form of ovarian cancer. Learn more.

Pelvic Adhesions

Pelvic adhesions are scar tissue. This scar tissue can grow between two organs in the pelvic area and cause significant pelvic pain. Adhesions can occur around the bladder, bowel, ureter, uterus and ovaries. Learn more.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when the pelvic organs (bladder, rectum, or uterus) push into the vaginal canal due to the weakening of pelvic muscles. Symptoms can include a feeling of pelvic pressure, feeling as if something is falling out of the vagina, painful intercourse and more. Learn more.
