Endometriosis and infertility: the impact on quality of life and mental health


Endometriosis is one of the most common gynaecological diseases and has an incidence of about 6%-10% in women of reproductive age. It has been estimated that 50% of women with fertility problems have endometriosis. The management of infertility associated with endometriosis is difficult and controversial and it is important to provide a multidisciplinary approach in order to reduce the impact of these diseases on psychological and emotive well-being of affected women, as much as possible.
