Endometriosis, classically defined as a disease of unknown origin that causes pain and infertility, has an estimated incidence of approximately 10% in women of reproductive age. Several epidemiologic factors are associated with an increased incidence, such as an early age at menarche and short menstrual cycle length. Conversely, current use of oral contraceptives and multiparity are characteristics associated with a lower incidence. It also is interesting that an inverse correlation between body mass index and incidence of endometriosis has been observed by numerous reports.

As per the doctor ’s advice (which matched what we had read ourselves), we decided to go ahead with IVF-ICSI since this would the best suited for our condition since a single sperm would be injected into a single egg, thus dealing with the low sperm motility issue.

Now, on an ultrasound scan or a laparoscopy, once the diagnosis is made, then doctors usually get itchy fingers and want to treat it.
