Not the only one: In cases of severe endometriosis where medical and conservative surgical therapies are inadequate to control the pain and pregnancy is no longer desired, it may be the best option. Management can be very challenging for these types of patients who still want to get pregnant, a skilled, experienced, empathetic gynecologist would be able to review the options with you.
