ABSTRACT
Endometriosis is common in reproductive-age women and often associated with impaired fecundity and infertility. This endometriosis -related infertility could be treated with surgery or different kinds of assisted reproduction techniques including in vitro fertilization, ovarian hyperstimulation and intrauterine insemination. Due to the limited effect of traditional treatment, assisted reproduction techniques have been used as first-choice treatment in these patients, especially the in vitro fertilization technique which could offer a relatively high pregnancy rate. But large trials are still warranted for ovarian function control, endometriosis-related pregnant complications, etc.
