Adecuate resective surgery plus Lupron should be your first option.
Other medications like progesterone, danazol, aromatase inhibitor drugs, Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud can be options for treatment.

In brief: Several

Other medications may help such as Norethindrone acetate, aromatase inhibitors, and Lupron (leuprolide) injections.
Often times a medicine works for a certain time and then another one is required. Sometimes atypical medicines such as Gabapentin can help pain. Exercise and even acupuncture can be very useful.
