Conditions and Treatments

A wide variety of benign (non-cancerous) conditions can affect a woman’s reproductive system, which consists of the uterus, the vagina, ovaries and fallopian tubes. Most of these conditions affect the uterus, which is the hollow, muscular organ that holds a baby as it grows inside a woman that is pregnant.

 

Common types of gynecologic conditions including endometriosis (non-cancerous growths of the uterine lining), fibroids (non-cancerous growths in the uterine wall), excessive menstrual bleeding and uterine prolapse (falling or slipping of the uterus) can cause chronic pain and heavy bleeding, as well as other disabling symptoms.
