Abstract In women with endometriosis, including those with endometriomas, 6 to 8 weeks of continuous use of oral contraception (OC) before assisted reproduction treatment (ART) maintains ART outcomes comparable with the outcomes of age-matched controls without endometriosis. In contrast, ART outcomes are markedly compromised in endometriosis patients who are not pretreated with OC. Ovarian responsiveness to stimulation was not altered by 6 to 8 weeks' use of pre-ART OC, including in poor responders with endometriomas. Copyright © 2010 American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
