  • It is also researched that it can be developed into the fetus which is developing inside the woman’s womb and can be present at the pubertal estrogen levels.
  • This condition can be genetic defect which is an inherited component. If a female has a close relative who has this disease then there is chance for a girl that endometriosis can be developed.
