In brief: No

There are various medical and surgical treatments for endometriosis.
Medical treatments include birth control pills, Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) and Depo-Provera lupron. Surgical treatments include laparoscopy to remove endometriosis and scar tissue. Hysterectomy may be done when other treatments have failed.

In brief: 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.
