Overview

Endometriosis affects approximately 11,000 per 100,000 females of reproductive age. Endometriosis is more common in the Caucasian population than the African American population. Endometriosis accounts for the majority of patients with chronic pelvic pain and infertility.

Epidemiology and Demographics

  • Epidemiological data for endometriosis is scarce due to the following reasons:[1]
    • Endometriosis includes a wide spectrum of symptoms and pathologic findings.
    • Endometriosis is asymptomatic in the early stages and a diagnosis is usually made for the first time as a part of infertility work up.

Prevalence

Race

  • Endometriosis is more common in the Caucasian population than the African American population.[1]
