Patients with persistent dysmenorrhea despite treatment and no other identified etiologies should be counseled about the high likelihood of endometriosis and the risks and benefits of diagnostic laparoscopy.

Endometriotic ovarian cysts (known as ‘endometriomas’) are mostly thought to occur through invagination of endometriotic tissue/cells through the ovarian (...) distortion and reduced endometrial receptivity, leading to compromised oocyte and embryo quality, and ovarian reserve, but the precise mechanism has yet to be determined. 3 Potential mechanisms for endometrioma‐associated infertility 3.1 Chronic inflammation Endometriosis is associated with dysregulation of the immune system.
