Sampson called the syndrome several superficial, small and blood lesions of the peritoneum, in the ovaries, and on the intestinal surface, as "endometriosis¨ In 1927 he launched his theory of delayed menstruation or reflux theory, as cause of endometriosis.

During menstruation, most of the menstrual blood circulates through the vagina, but some of the blood from the uterus can also flow through the fallopian tubes into the abdominal fossa, which is called retrograde menstruation.

Almost all women occasionally have a retrograde period, what could be called physiological, but most do not suffer from endometriosis. Therefore, other factors must also play a role in the development of endometriosis.

Endometriosis occurs at all ages between adolescence and menopause, it occurs both in women who have not had children and in women who have had them. Endometriosis occurs in women in all the different levels of society.

Endometriosis is more common in certain families. Women who do not have children or who have children at an advanced age also have a increased risk of endometriosis. The reason for this is undoubtedly that they menstruate more frequently in their days than women who do have children.
