Chocolate Cyst and Egg Freezing

Portfolio Description

The information provided below about medical diseases is not for advertising purposes. These are articles intended to inform and promote patients. If you think you have one of the diseases listed below, we recommend that you be examined by healthcare professionals who specialize in this field for medical advice and treatment.


In the case of endometriosis of female eggs, that is, endometrioma, popularly known as chocolate cyst, unfortunately chocolate cyst can reduce the egg reserve in women and reduce the possibility of women getting pregnant. Egg reserve is a value that decreases with age and is irreversible. In cases such as chocolate cysts, this decrease occurs faster.

Therefore, egg freezing can be performed in order to increase women’s chances of becoming pregnant in their later years and to preserve their reproductive capacity. In our country, a health board report is required for egg freezing. In cases of decreased egg reserve, if the AMH value is below 1.2, egg freezing is performed in women who will undergo or have had egg surgery or in patients who will receive radiotherapy or chemotherapy for diseases such as cancer.

As a physician who opened the first ‘Endometriosis and Chronic Pelvic Pain’ polyclinic in Turkey, I believe that the reproductive capacity of women should be protected as well as the control of pain caused by endometriosis, and we continue our efforts to raise awareness of this situation.
