Is Endometriosis Curable?

Is endometriosis curable?

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.
