Deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) is associated with severe pelvic pain and functional impairment of bowel, urinary, and sexual functions. Though hormone therapy with progestins, either as single agents or combined with estrogens, is effective in managing symptoms, some patients may experience a suboptimal response. Endometrial thickness assessed by transvaginal ultrasound examination, reflecting the overall estrogen stimulation, may correlate with the clinical response to hormonal treatments.

Abstract

Deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) is associated with severe pelvic pain and functional impairment of bowel, urinary, and sexual functions. Though hormone therapy with progestins, either as single agents or combined with estrogens, is effective in managing symptoms, some patients may experience a suboptimal response. Endometrial thickness assessed by transvaginal ultrasound examination, reflecting the overall estrogen stimulation, may correlate with the clinical response to hormonal treatments.
