Endometriosis pain: With pain from endometriosis, removing the ovaries or shutting them down temporarily with leuprolide injections are the two most common options. A condition called interstitial cystitis is also associated with endometriosis and you should be evaluated for that as well. Often that is an associated cause for the pain
