Many women with endometriosis experience compromised fertility. This disease clearly exerts quantitative damage on the ovaries, and perhaps, also qualitative damage. However, it remains controversial whether endometrial receptivity is compromised. Here we review the evidence from basic transcriptomic signature data to clinical data from an oocyte donation model and find support for the concept that endometrial receptivity is not impaired in women with endometriosis when healthy embryos reach the endometrial cavity.
