Following an extensive search for recent studies on ovarian endometrioma treatment ( Table 1 , Table 2 , Table 3 , Table 4 , Table 5 , Table 6 and Table 7 ), we found that the factors of ovarian reserve, laterality, size and hindering effects, and prior surgical treatment were used to help select patients for surgical treatment or expectant management to improve fertility outcomes. New and improved treatment options are being created, but more research reporting IVF and pregnancy rates is crucial to determine the most effective treatment in women with ovarian endometriomas.
