In brief: Issue

I think you mean endometriosis and endometritis? Endometritis is an infection of the lining of the uterus and often times responds to antibiotics.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition where endometrial tissue is found outside of the uterine lining. It is treated with surgery, lupron (leuprolide) and birth control as well as a few other options.
