abstract

  • The historical background to the classification of endometriosis is presented and modern classification systems are reviewed. The effectiveness of the currently used revised American Fertility Society classification system is limited and improved systems are required. Factors that should be incorporated into such systems include the documentation of endometriotic implants, classification of disease, prediction of pregnancy rates and prediction of prognosis for relief of pain.
