Follicular stimulation and response, oocyte recovery, fertilization rates, and pregnancy rates are addressed with respect to stages I to II endometriosis. The role of prior therapy for endometriosis, use of gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogues, and operative endoscopy in association with the new reproductive technologies is explored.
