It is the innermost layer of uterus lining the uterine cavity. It grows during each menstrual cycle and then sheds off in the form of menstrual blood. In endometriosis, this layer grows inside the ovaries, fallopian tubes and inner lining of pelvis. The tissue here also grows during every menstrual cycle and then bleeds.
