Endometriosis can have a profound impact on women ’s lives, including associated pain, infertility, decreased quality of life, and interference with daily life, relationships, and livelihood. The first step in alleviating these adverse sequelae is to diagnose the underlying condition. For many women, the journey to endometriosis diagnosis is long and fraught with barriers and misdiagnoses. Inherent challenges include a gold standard based on an invasive surgical procedure (laparoscopy) and diverse symptomatology, contributing to the well-established delay of 4 to 11 years from first symptom onset to surgical diagnosis.

ConclusionEndometrial HOXA-10 gene expression in women with endometriosis is significantly down-regulated than in those without endometriosis. Endometriosis patients with infertility have significantly lower levels of endometrial HOXA-10 gene expression than endometriosis without infertility; thus decreased expression of this gene may, directly or indirectly, be related with the endometriosis-associated infertility. Severe endometriosis cases express, in their both endometrium and endometrioma tissues, significantly lower levels of HOXA-10 gene than moderate endometriosis cases.

IVF is commonly applied to all indications for infertility, but increasingly unexplained causes predominate (www.sart.org). Specifically, endometriosis is listed as the primary diagnosis in less than 4% of cases in the United States, primarily because laparoscopy is not performed for the basic infertility workup, as it once was (1). Unexplained cases of infertility show a high prevalence of endometriosis (2, 3). Visible endometriosis such as endometriomas present a special challenge, especially since ovarian reserve may be compromised when ovarian surgery is performed.
