The North American Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology offers a patient handout on endometriosis at this link. Endometriosis in adolescents is not as well understood as endometriosis in adults, as covered in the June issue of Contemporary OB/GYN by Marc Laufer, MD, and Jessica Y. Shim, MD.
