In brief: Endometriosis

This picture shows removal of endometriosis.
With robotic surgery, meticulous excision of this disease can greatly improve your symptoms. Pelvic pain therapy treats the pain of spastic muscles. Valium (diazepam) suppositories and Botox injections help the pain by relaxing the pelvic floor. You need health team that includes a gynecologist who specializes in this condition.

In brief: Many treatment optio

Ns! aside from hormonal contraceptives, there are also choices like Lupron with aygestin, Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud with or without low-dose danazol, and many more! the problem is that some of the side effects with medical therapy aren't tolerable for some patients.
If you are done having babies and approaching menopause, a hysterectomy and removing the ovaries would be the most definitive treatment.

Though Dr Finke's response is a standard route, I feel that hysterectomy and oopherectomy can often be avoided through complete resection of endometrial implants via laparoscopy. Such surgery can be technically difficult and may not be offered by all gynecologists, but there exists a population of endometriosis specialists that have trained to do this type of work.
