How we treat Endometriosis

Treat endometriosis

We treat endometriosis in various ways dependent upon the individual.

Diagnosis

Endometriosis may be suspected based on the symptoms experienced. A physical examination and an ultrasound scan may also suggest the presence of endometriosis. However, a laparoscopy is the most common procedure performed to diagnosis & treat endometriosis.

Treatment Options

There is currently no cure for endometriosis however there are treatments that can help with the pain that endometriosis can cause and also improve fertility.

Pain Medication

Over the counter medication such as Ibuprofen is often used to treat endometriosis as in addition to easing the pain it will help reduce inflammation which can improve symptoms. Paracetamol may also help if the pain is fairly mild and stronger ‘prescription only’ medications can also be prescribed to treat endometriosis.

Hormone Treatments

As oestrogen encourages endometriosis to grow, the aim of hormone treatments is to reduce or stop the body producing oestrogen so as to reduce the amount of endometriosis tissue and the symptoms it can cause. There are a number of different treatment options available.

Surgery

Laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery is the most common procedure used to diagnose and treat endometriosis to improve symptoms and fertility. Depending on the severity of symptoms of endometriosis a laparotomy or hysterectomy may also be considered.
