In brief: Endometriosis

No. Endometriosis is the abnormal presence of endometrium (see microscopy picture) outside of the inner uterine cavity.
The tissue deposits on the ovaries, fallopian tubes and surrounding organs causing scarring, infertility and pain. Proper diagnosis is established by laparoscopic exam and sampling of the suspicious tissue.
