Endometritus is an infection of the lining of the uterus, and it can occur without you having had a baby.
Be seen to evaluate.

In brief: Because it is there

The uterus is a structure that many consider internal, but it is really open to the outside through the cervix & vagina.
Germs that hang out in the vagina & the others contributed through sex are all potential agents that could enter the uterus and cause infection. Germs go where there is mucus and other tissues to feed on. The uterus is full of them.
