Endometrioma is such a pathology which subsides during pregnanacy. Once again you go for repeat sonography scan to evaluate size of ovarian endometrioma. Lpaparoscopy is not only required for ovaries but it will also show tubal status, presence of endometrioma at other places than ovaries which can be fulgurated and along with it hysteroscopy should be done to see any uterine pathology affecting uterine cavity. Other blood tests are necessary to r/o other infections which affects uterine cavily and lead to abortions.If fibroids are small and not projecting in uterine cavity, they do not require removal.
