Objectives: Endometriosis, a common disease of the female reproductive system, could affect many aspects of the life of women. Along with many other diseases, COVID-19 has affected the diagnostic or treatment approaches towards endometriosis. This systematic review aims to investigate COVID-19 in endometriosis patients in terms of prognosis, diagnosis and treatment, and quality of life during the pandemic.
Methods: Relevant studies were identified through searching for endometriosis and COVID-19 in different databases, including PubMed, Medline, Scopus, and Web of Science, on 17 January 2022. Peer-reviewed published articles evaluating COVID-19 and endometriosis written in English were included.
Results: Out of 115 articles, 9 manuscripts met our criteria. Endometriosis does not intensify the risk of COVID-19 infection. However, COVID-19 has changed the health care of endometriosis patients.
Conclusions: COVID-19 has affected endometriosis patients’ life from many aspects, including their job, lifestyle, and health care. Further studies are recommended to evaluate how the pandemic has affected endometriosis patients.
