Endometriosis affects 6-10% of women in childbearing age. It is a heterogeneous disease with three different forms: superficial endometriosis (peritoneal), ovarian endometrioma and deep pelvic endometriosis (subperitoneal).

Surgical management of endometriomas is justified in cases of significant clinical symptoms (like pain), especially in cases of resistance to medical treatment. Currently, laparoscopic cystectomy surgery is the recommended technique to treat ovarian endometrioma. However, it is now well demonstrated that this surgery significantly reduces the ovarian reserve.

Ethanol sclerotherapy is an alternative technique used to treat ovarian endometriomas. Several studies demonstrated the effectiveness and safety of this treatment, particularly in terms of preserving fertility. Regarding these reassuring data, many clinicians changed their practices and propose this technique as a first-line surgery.

Ovarian reserve comprises two elements: size of the primordial follicle stock and quality of the ovocytes. Antimüllerian hormone (AMH) has been shown to be the best marker of fertility.

The aim of this study is to observe changes in AMH levels after endometrioma sclerotherapy. This study is conducted in the Hospices Civils de Lyon, in 3 different sites.
