Abstract

This observational cohort study examined the effect of laparoscopic full excision of endometriosis combined with postoperative triptorelin treatment on deep dyspareunia (DD) and quality of sex life. One year after completing the postoperative treatment, 45.9% of the patients had no DD and 34.7% reported a decrease in DD intensity; an increase in the frequency of sexual intercourse was reported by 62.2% of the women; objective improvements in several aspects of sex life were observed.
