Close follow up: You are female and have endometriosis. Having your doctor do close follow up to see what works for you. The birth control pills will hopefully help. But having a doctor who knows you well can be the best advise. In the future as new issues arise , having a doctor who knows you well will be the best treatment plan.

Tx after lap/ endo: If your not planning to conceive , the best approach after laparoscopy would be to treat with 6 month course of Lupron therapy. You may then consider Nexplanon , depoprovera or a Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud. Ocp's is an option , but not a good one to controll endometriosis
