Abstract: Adult stem cells are present in several human tissues, including the endometrium. Menstrual blood derived stem cells (MenSCs) are mesenchymal stem cells that can be obtained in a non‐invasive manner. Due to its rapid proliferation rate, low immunogenicity and low tumorigenicity, MenSCs are used extensively in tissue engineering. They can be induced into multiple cell lineages under certain conditions. MenSCs contribute to tissue repair via several different mechanisms, highlighting their great promise in clinical applications. Endometrial stem cells may also be used to shed light on the pathogenesis of endometriosis and endometrial carcinoma. This review will cover recent progress in this field. © 2016 Sociedade Brasileira de Reprodução Humana
