Answer

Potential complications of endometritis include the following:

Spread of infection from the endometrium to the fallopian tubes, ovaries, or the peritoneal cavity may result in salpingitis, oophoritis, localized peritonitis, or tubo-ovarian abscesses. Salpingitis subsequently leads to tubal dysmotility and adhesions that result in infertility, higher incidence of ectopic pregnancy, and chronic pelvic pain.
