A Taiwanese lady recently fell ill with what she initially thought was a heart or lung problem. She kept coughing out phlegm that were occasionally laced with blood clots. And it got worse during her menstrual cycle.

And just like menstruation, these bizarrely located lining will break away every cycle. Blood flowing backwards into the pelvis could also be the cause of endometriosis, reported Nextshark.

According to NTUH’s Head of Gynecology, Dr. Lin who treated the patient, the tissues might have traveled up into her lungs and got trapped.

To curb this issue temporarily, the patient was given birth control pills and hormone injections. This is to help prevent her from ovulating and menstruating.

According to Nextshark, KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital said that this condition usually affect women during their reproductive years. Worst of all, this illness could even cause infertility which 30% of women with this disorder are affected.
