Endometritis is inflammation of the lining of the uterus that usually occurs as a complication of an infection. Signs of endometritis include fever, lower abdominal pain, and bleeding between menstrual periods.
Treatment with antibiotics usually clears up the infection and inflammation within a few days. Without treatment, the infection can spread to the bloodstream and can cause serious illness.
