Endometriosis-associated infertility is poorly treatable with various forms of surgery. Therefore, assisted reproduction techniques (ARTs), such as controlled ovarian hyperstimulation, intrauterine insemination, or in vitro fertilization, are commonly used for endometriosis-associated infertility. Endometriosis impairs the efficacy of in vitro fertilization. There is no evidence that ovulation suppression before ART would ...
