In brief: Depends
On how you are: up to 50% of a population of teenagers w/ pelvic pain will have endo; 30-40% of women with infertility who undergo laparoscopy; 1-7% for women undergoing tubal sterilization; as you can see the prevalence of endo is hard to pin down in a general population.
.It really depends on the population being studied.
