Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Ovarian reserve modification [ Time Frame: Three months after laparoscopy ]
    Ovarian reserve modification will be defined as the difference (expressed as Δ) between post-operative and pre-operative values of AMH, FSH, AFC, OV, VI, FI and VFI

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Operative time [ Time Frame: The same day of surgery ]
    Time from skin incision to skin closure

  2. variation of hemoglobin level [ Time Frame: two hours after the end of surgery ]
  3. postoperative hospital stay [ Time Frame: The day of patient discharge ]
  4. postoperative return to normal activity [ Time Frame: two months after surgery ]
  5. complication rate [ Time Frame: The day of patient discharge ]
