Endometriosis is a chronic condition and there is no cure. Surgery to excise and/or ablate endometriosis can increase the chance of pregnancy, but repeat surgeries are not successful. The treatment of choice depending on the age of the woman and the extent of the endometriosis includes ovulation induction with IUI’s and IVF. IVF is more successful but is also more costly and is not as available.
