Is Endometriosis Curable?

Q:
Is endometriosis curable?

A:
Unfortunately, there is no cure for endometriosis at present. However, there are treatments to relieve the symptoms.

The best treatments should take into the following considerations:

  • age
  • severity of the symptoms
  • need for children

Treatments for endometriosis pain fall into three general categories:

  • Pain medications: an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) or naproxen (Aleve, others), to help ease painful menstrual cramps
  • Hormone therapy: they may slow endometrial tissue growth and prevent new implants of endometrial tissue
  • Surgical treatment:  some surgical treatments can provide significant, although short-term, pain relief from endometriosis

In a word, options for a best treatment should be made under the guidance of your doctor.
