Interesting information--would this simply be a variant of the 'metaplasia hypothesis' to explain female endometriosis, in which (some) peritoneal epithelial cells retain the embryonic ability to transform into endometrial cells, given the appropriate hormonal stimuli or lack of immune response?

Also, you note menopause in children--could you elaborate? I haven't been able to find any information on that.
