SummaryThe clinical outcomes of five groups of infertility patients receiving frozen-thawed, cleavage-stage embryo transfers with exogenous hormone protocols with or without a depot gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist were assessed.

ConclusionModerate-to-severe endometriosis was more common in women with East or South East Asian ethnicity in our tertiary referral center. This could be explained by East/South East Asians with minimal-mild disease being less likely to seek care, or genetic/environmental differences that increase the risk of more severe disease amongst East/South East Asians.
