What this study is trying to show is that women who have had severe acne as teens may go on to develop endometriosis. This means that when a doctor is examining a woman who he suspects may have endometriosis, he should ask about her history of acne.  

Women with endometriosis may not have had severe teenage acne, it is just an increased risk factor.

Acne can come from hormone imbalances, which may be why you are having it now.  It could improve or perhaps your doctor needs to make more adjustments if your endometriosis is not under control.  

take care,
