Are endometriosis and endometritis the same?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 04/06/2022

No. Endometritis refers to inflammation or irritation of the endometrium inside the uterus, possibly due to a bacterial infection.

Endometriosis, on the other hand, means invasion of the endometrium into other tissues outside the uterus, the causes of which are not yet confirmed.
