PURPOSE: To determine the effect of the presence of endometriosis on the delivered pregnancy rate following in vitro fertilization-embryo transfer.
METHODS: A retrospective cohort analysis of fresh or frozen embryo transfer in women with diminished egg reserve having IVF-ET and who also had had a laparoscopy. The data was analyzed as to whether endometriosis was present or not.
RESULTS: The data demonstrated that women with diminished egg reserve can achieve pregnancies following IVF-ET. The presence of endometriosis did not have any negative effects on pregnancy rates.
CONCLUSIONS: At least in women with diminished egg reserve the presence of endometriosis did not impair outcome following IVF-ET.
