Noted. Thank you for sharing. I didn't find anything that said it could be passed on through birth.Years ago when landscaping, and planting I used several pesticides before my girls were born. I never had endometriosis, but both of my daughters had this, which ended in operations, and no chance of childbirth as it was never caught soon enough.Surrounding organs can be affected by this disease.

When in the heck are these fools ever going to pay attention about Pesticides? All these warnings and they still use them. Thanks Carrie

I've heard several different things. I don't really think they know for sure what causes endometriosis. I sure wish they'd find out for sure because I have severe endometriosis & I'm tired of suffering with it. I wish they'd not only find out what causes it, but find a freaking cure or at least better treatments.
