Endometriosis is characterized by the presence of endometrial glands and stroma outside the uterus. This causes dyspareunia, dysmenorrhea and infertility. Endometriosis has been known to increase the rate of complications during pregnancy, such as miscarriage, preterm birth, fetal growth restriction, preeclampsia and antepartum bleeding. The following case describes an exceptional situation in which a patient with known endometriosis suffered a recurrent episode of spontaneous hemoperitoneum within the same pregnancy. This case highlights that while conservative management of spontaneous hemoperitoneum may gain invaluable time for fetal growth, such treatment comes with its own risks.
