Endometriosis is an inflammatory condition and common cause of infertility. For 20% of people seeking fertility treatment it is the sole reason they require assisted reproductive technologies.
A recent study shows that eggs retrieved from women with endometriosis are less likely to mature once collected, have altered morphology and lower levels of mitochondria which are considered the powerhouses of our cells essential for growth and maturation.
