Treatment for endometriosis depends on symptoms that a woman experiences and whether she wants to have children. It may be treated with medication, surgery, or both. The treatment that a woman is offered should be decided in partnership between her and her doctor.
The considerations about what type of treatment should be used, depend on several factors, such as:
- The severity of the symptoms
- The desire to have children
- The severity of the disease
Although symptoms of endometriosis may come back, therapy can relieve pain for a time.
