    Default Removal of Endometrioma prior to IVF

    I have have 4cm Endometrioma on an ovary. Although i don’t have any classic symptoms of endometriosis, I am wondering whether it is more widespread. My specialist has never investigated this so I may get a second opinion as he does not seem to be too concerned. I’m wondering that it may be affecting my egg quality (as well as age). Has anyone had an Endometrioma removed prior to IVF?

    Hi Anna2019, I don't really know if I can answer your question just yet but wanted to let you know that I had an endometrioma on my left ovary when I did my first ivf cycle (we didn't realise it was there until I didn't respond well to Gonal f)
    I managed to get 2 mature eggs out of only 3, 1 fertilized and made it to freeze (high grade day 7) I'm 37 with low AMH (5.1) so I'm hoping egg quality was not the issue.
    I had surgery a month ago to have all endometriosis excised by an excision specialist and we are about to start 2nd round. I'm on a long protocol this time round with about 3 weeks of tablets and testogel before starting Gonal f again. I'll let you know how it goes now all the endometriosis and the endometrioma has been removed. I would definitely question the endometriosis being in other areas as I didn't realise mine was so bad until my ivf specialist sent me for a ct scan after the poor response and also egg collection was extremely painful for me which it shouldn't of been as bad as it was. Definitely get it checked out if you have the option......good luck hun
