A 32-year-old member asked:

Is there any cure for endometriosis without getting an operation?

No: There is no cure for endometriosis. And even surgery, even a hysterectomy, cannot cure endometriosis. Sometimes it is not even visible but is still present. The most powerful medicine to suppress endometriosis is lupron (leuprolide).
Dr. Alfredo Nieves
Gynecology 41 years experience
No: We do not have cure for endometriosis, we have good treatment for pain control.
