She’s definitely born with it
Way back when I first started this blog in April 2009 you may remember I reported on the finding that endometriosis had been discovered in unborn foetuses. This evidence pretty much provides conclusive proof that endometriosis is a disease you are born with. Well a very recent study from the same research group in Italy has confirmed their previous findings. After performing autopsies on 13 human foetuses, deceased from placental pathology or miscarriage, they found one 25 week old foetus showed clear evidence of endometriosis. It is now becoming clear that endometriosis is a disease you are born with, the only trouble is we still don’t know why.
