Authors: Ashrafi M, Arabipoor A, Hemat M, Salman-Yazdi R Abstract This case-control study was designed to evaluate the impact of endometriosis and the presence of endometrioma (OMA) per se on the serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) level and also to compare the in vitro fertilisation/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF/ICSI) outcomes after therapeutic surgery in endometriosis patients, according to the localisation of endometriosis lesions. One hundred and fifty two infertile women ≤40 years with suspicious symptoms were surgically evaluated to detect the aetiology of infertility at the Royan Institut...

Endometriosis is associated with infertility. Between 25 - 50% of infertile women have endometriosis and 30 - 50% of women with endometriosis are infertile (1). Many of these women will have to undergo IVF. Abnormal folliculogenesis, impaired oocyte and embryo quality due to radical oxidative stress and imbalances in the levels of cytokines and interleukins have been described as potential contributors to infertility in women with endometriosis (2). We wondered if utilizing ICSI may overcome these stressors and improve fertilization rate and pregnancy rate in women with endometriosis associated infertility.

ProblemUterine natural killer (uNK) cells play a critical role early in gestation. As we previously identified altered uNK cell development in endometriosis‐associated infertility, we herein sought to characterize natural killer (NK) cell profiles in endometriosis that may predict embryo implantation. Method of studyStudy participants had a surgical diagnosis of endometriosis‐associated infertility. Endometrial tissue and peripheral blood were obtained from 58 women. Thirty‐three patients underwent artificial reproductive technology (IVF, ICSI, or IUI) within a mean of 9.5 months of surgery. NK and hematopoietic...

ConclusionCurrent evidence suggests that women with endometriosis-related infertility have similar cycle outcomes to other patients going through ART. It is pertinent for clinicians to assess the risks of surgical intervention on ovarian reserve prior to initiating therapy.

ConclusionThat laser-assisted hatching by thinning of the zona pellucida may be a suitable method to improve the ICSI-ET outcomes, in term of the implantation and the pregnancy rates, in cases of endometriosis.Clinical trial registrationPan African Clinical Trials Registry (PACTR),, PACTR201602001467322.

Publication date: Available online 23 October 2017 Source:Reproductive BioMedicine Online Author(s): Angelos Daniilidis, George Pados According to ESHRE recommendations for women with stage I/II endometriosis, if a decision is made to proceed to laparoscopy then operative laparoscopy (excision or ablation of the endometriotic lesions) should be performed rather than only diagnostic laparoscopy, to increase ongoing pregnancy rates. Also, for infertile women with stage I/II endometriosis doctors may consider complete surgical removal of endometriosis to improve live birth rate prior to assisted reproductive treatment. This ...

Discussion The various possible pathophysiological mechanisms are described, with a review of the literature on simultaneous bilateral extrauterine pregnancy following ART. In pregnancies following ART, ectopic pregnancy should always be screened for by serum β-human chorionic gonadotropin monitoring and transvaginal ultrasound until the implantation site can be confirmed as the incidence is higher than in spontaneous pregnancy. Even if serum β-human chorionic gonadotropin concentration increases normally, possible bilateral ectopic pregnancy should always be investigated if no intrauterine gestational sac can be seen.

Abstract Our objective was to assess the role of laparoscopic removal of ovarian endometriomas and ablation of peritoneal endometriosis on the outcome of intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) - Embryo Transfer cycles by comparing with the results of patients with untreated endometriomas and tubal factor without underlying endometriosis confirmed by laparoscopy. For this purpose, between 2002 and 2015, outcomes of 257 ICSI cycles of 150 patients, including 91 cycles of 48 patients in minimal endometriosis, 57 cycles of 25 patients in endometrioma removal, 65 cycles of 53 patients in non-operated endometrioma, and...

The post What a pain! – Lisa’s story appeared first on Hysterectomy Association. I knew I had endometriosis as it had a laparoscopy that identified this in my mid thirties as part of infertility investigations. I tried ICSI once after that and paid privately but we were unsuccessful in having a baby. We carried on ‘leaving it up to nature’ for many years after that but nothing happened. At the age of forty three we decided that we wouldn’t actively pursue my getting pregnant any more and put the idea to bed – my husband has a 17 yr old daughter from a previous marriage and she lives...
