endometrioma of 8 cms size should be preferably treated by enucleation, if only laser application for evacuation ect preformed there is chance for recurrence,
if the cyst is possibly remnant and as the size is some what less you can prefer medical therapy to some extent but usually repeat surgery is the treatment of choice,
pregnancy with endometrioma can cause some other problems like rupture etc,
so better first get treated for it before planning for pregnancy,
for more details,
take care.
