The researchers used four different questionnaires to assess the quality of sexual life and the health-related quality of life of women with deep infiltrative endometriosis who underwent laparoscopic excision surgery.
All the women answered the four questionnaires before surgery. The patients with deep infiltration endometriosis they also completed the questionnaires six months and three years after surgery.

Six months after laparoscopic excision surgery, responses showed that the health-related and sexual quality of life of women with deep infiltrating endometriosis had improved and was comparable to that of healthy women. Three years after surgery, the improvements remained with only a slight reduction compared to six months after surgery.
