From the literature, the crucial knowledge were drawn among endometriosis related infertility. Endometriosis is an important factor of infertility in minimal or light stages and a major one in mild or moderate stages. Thus, a laparoscopy must be performed to confirm endometriosis when suggestive clinical or biological signs exist. In absence of them, laparoscopy can be delayed after intra-uterine inseminations (IUI). The first line treatment is laparoscopic surgery. Its efficacy is proven. It is useless to prescribe a post-operative medical treatment (GnRH analogues)...

Endometriosis, a common cause of morbidity in reproductive age females, results in pelvic pain and infertility. Effective, evidence-based treatments of endometriosis-associated infertility include conservative surgical therapy and assisted reproductive technologies. In early stage endometriosis ovulation induction, with or without intrauterine insemination, improves pregnancy rates. In early stage disease in vitro fertilization reduces time to pregnancy as compared to controls, but does not increase the chance of pregnancy after three years...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Treatment of endometriosis-associated infertility has not yet become standardized. Various protocols including surgical treatment, medical therapy, and a combination of both have been suggested but their use remains controversial. The objective of the present study was to determine whether postoperative adjuvant therapy for endometriosis is effective in improving reproductive outcome. METHODS: Medical records of infertile patients with newly diagnosed endometriosis treated in a university teaching hospital during a 50-month period were reviewed...

AIM OF THE STUDY: Define the best medico surgical strategy in infertile women with stage III-IV endometriosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Two groups, A (N26) and B (N 37), treated for infertility associated or not with pelvic pain, due to stage AFS III or IV endometriosis, were compared. They had similar surgical procedure: operative laparoscopy including resection of endometriotic lesions, more particularly endometriomas and rectovaginal septum nodules. Associated medical strategy was different: group A, operative laparoscopy without preoperative treatment and in 40% a second laparoscopy taking place after 2-3 months of LHRH analogues; no post operative treatment; group B, operative laparoscopy taking place after ovarian blockage with 3-6 weeks of Diane (Androcur + ethinyl estradiol), then 2-3 months of analogue postoperative treatment immediately followed by ovarian stimulation (OS) + intrauterine insemination (IUI) in women more than 30 years old with operative tubes (N 22), no treatment for six months in similar cases less than 30 (N 5), and IVF in women with damaged tubes (N 5) or after OS + IUI failure (N 4)...
