How is endometriosis treated?

How is endometriosis treated?

Multiple ways: Once endometriosis is diagnosed (usually with surgery), depending on the severity, it can be treated with hormone suppressing medications. Sometimes in mild cases, oral contraceptive pills can help. In severe cases where large cysts have formed or where it is causing blockage of the bowels or urinary system, surgery is needed and may require a hysterectomy with removal of the ovaries.

Is endometriosis on the pouch of douglas hard to treat?

Is endometriosis on the pouch of douglas hard to treat?

Depends: Depends on how much endometriosis and how much scar tissue. It can be surgically respected. Also, you can use a GnRH agonist (such as leuprolide acetate) to temporarily shrink it away. Ultimately, you will likely need a hysterectomy when you complete childbearing.

Is it necessary to have surgery to diagnose and treat endometriosis? I don't really want surgery and all the risks etc

Nope: If you are okay living with the symptoms and the pain, there is no reason to put yourself through surgery. That is your decision. However, there are instances where the diagnosis might be something else, and you should talk to your doctor/surgeon to clarify that possibility and if there are other harms of not getting an operation.

Has anyone used synarel (nafarelin) to treat endometriosis?

Long time: Yes, i used it to treat patients occasionally in the early-mid 1990s, as did many other specialists. It was fairly effective but cumbersome to use. I've not used it in many years, and it's overall popularity has faded significantly.

My pain m. Dr. Suspects that my endometriosis may be growing on my spine . I'm 34 yrs old with stage 4. How would this be diagnosed and treated?

My pain m. Dr. Suspects that  my endometriosis may be growing on my spine . I'm 34 yrs old with stage 4. How would this be diagnosed and treated?

Pretty rare: Endometriosis has been found pretty much everywhere in the body, although rare, i suppose it could be on your spine. Is your pain coincident with your menses? Have imaging studies shown lesions? Have you had laparoscopic resections in the past? I would recommend seeing a specialist (gyn surgeon) & strongly consider a gnrh agonist (lupron) for diagnostic & hopefully curative reasons. Good luck.

Trying to get preg for 9 months, had laprascope to treat endometriosis in aug, needs some advise that may help with conception ?

Tubes open?: Are your tubes open and are you ovulating? is your partner making adequate sperm? If the answer to all three is yes then you should be able to conceive. Your doctor may consider Clomid (clomiphene) to boost your ovulation. Start taking Folic acid (at least 1 mg per day) or prenatal vitamins prior to getting pregnant.

I was on Cerazette for three months to treat endometriosis. Now I am feeling pain during sex again after a week. What should I do?

I was on Cerazette for three months to treat endometriosis. Now I am feeling pain during sex again after a week. What should I do?

Surgery perhaps: It is likely if you have endometriosis that you have deep infiltrating endometriosis just behind the the uterus. This is possibly causing the pain with intercourse. You have tried birth control pills and while that often can help with the pain - but often not for the long term - it will not get rid of the endometriosis. The only way to really get rid of it is to excise it and this means surgery.

How long endometriosis treated of single couples who wants to concieve very first.What is earliest possible to b fertile in this case?

Not sure : I'm not sure what your question is. Was your endometriosis treated with a medication and you're worried about when you might be able to conceive after receiving this medication? Or are you wondering if given a diagnosis of endometriosis, how long it takes to conceive? If the latter, then you could get pregnant right away. Having endometriosis doesn't mean that you have infertility only ^ risk.

25 yr old, no children, had laparoscopy to treat moderate endometriosis. What is chance of fertility being unaffected & when is best time to try?

Best Time,read: The highest probability of conception occurs when intercourse takes place one to two days prior to ovulation and on the day of ovulation. Optimum semen quality, measured in terms of motility, morphology, and total sperm count, occurs when there are two to three days of ejaculatory abstinence; longer intervals are associated with lower pregnancy rates. Regular intercourse two to three times per wee.
