There are a number of options for treating and managing endometriosis. These include lifestyle changes, medication, and surgery. There is a risk of persistence, despite treatment; there is also a risk of relapse after treatment.

The choice of preferred treatment depends on your age, the severity of your symptoms, where the endometrial tissue is growing, how large the growths are, and your desire for pregnancy.
