In brief: Its different.
Endometritis is an infection of the lining of the uterus ( endometrium) that can occur following prolonged labor or cs as well as uterine instrumentation eg: d&c, hysteroscopy.
It can also be caused by stds. Endometriosis is a chronic condition, where the hormone- responsive endometrial tissue grow outside the uterine cavity, mostly on the peritoneal cavity or within the ovaries.
