Authors: Hend Allaw, Almoutassem Billah Zetoune, Marwan Alhalabi

Endometriosis is a very common debilitating disease that occurs in 6 to 10 percent of the general female population; in women with pain, infertility, or both, the frequency is 35–50%. Endometriosis is one of the most important causes of infertility. Our objective is to evaluate the effect of endometriosis and adenomyosis on IVF outcome (ongoing pregnancy).

65 women underwent In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and embryos transfer who had endometriosis with or without adenomyosis were recruited in this retrospective study, resulting in 53.8% had a successful IVF attempt (get pregnant).

The highest success rate of IVF was in women who were in mild of endometriosis and IVF failure rate was increased mainly in women who were in severe endometriosis. So, the presence of adenomyosis affects IVF outcome and decreases the rate of implantation.
