Endometriosis is a disease that could affect women of reproductive age. It often manifests within the ovarian endometrioma, and the endometriotic lesions are mainly found in the pelvis, though extra pelvic lesions can appear. Endometriosis is considered to be an important disease that causes infertility and dysmenorrhea, and it has recently been noted that endometriosis significantly worsens quality of life (QOL) and adversely affects labor productivity. The pathophysiological cause of endometriosis is yet to be elucidated, but it has been suggested to be associated with the occurrence of dysmenorrhea during post-pubertal periods. In addition, there have been many reports in recent years that the occurrence of endometriosis is associated with pregnancy-related complications including threatened labor and placenta previa, osteoporosis, cancer, and mental disorders. In this Special Issue, we review the current knowledge of diseases associated with endometriosis and describe the future perspectives of clinical and experimental studies.
