• Endometriosis Treatment


Treatment for Endometriosis focuses on alleviation of pain and other symptoms and treatment of infertility that Endometriosis causes.

  • Hormones are used to suppress the natural menstrual cycle and pain management.
  • Oral contraceptives are also used in treatment of pain associated with Endometriosis. Other pain relieving medicines like NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) are also used.
  • In vitro fertilization is the commonly adopted option for infertility after Endometriosis, while Assisted Reproductive Technology is suggested if other measures fail.
  • Surgical removal of endometriotic masses and scar tissue is advised in treatment for Endometriosis when conservative medical management fails, or in younger, infertile women who desire pregnancy.
  • Hysterectomy (surgery to remove uterus) is done in extreme cases in women who have children and do not desire more.
