Objective: To investigate the effects of ovarian endometrioma on the number of oocytes retrieved for in vitro fertilization (IVF).
The mean endometrioma diameter was 26.2±7.3 mm for the right ovary and 23.2±6.1 mm for the left ovary.
The average number of retrieved oocytes after egg retrieval in groups 1 and 2 was 12.4±8.3 and 12.2±8.6, respectively.
The average number of metaphase II oocytes in groups 1 and 2 was 8.6±6.1 and 9.4±7.3, respectively.
The number of retrieved oocytes after egg retrieval and the number of metaphase II oocytes in both endometrioma group and unexplained infertile group were similar (p >0.05).
