Treatment

There is no cure, but endometriosis treatment can improve pain and fertility.

The treatment options include surgery and medication.

Women with endometriosis are treated primarily with surgery but drugs can also be used, particularly in those about to undergo in-vitro fertilization (IVF).

The usual surgery is the removal of the growths without damaging the reproductive organs.

An alternative is radical surgery which is a hysterectomy. It involves the removal of the uterus and cervix.

Medication options include hormone therapy, pain medication and hormonal contraceptives.

A healthy diet and elimination of foods that aggravate the symptoms can help to reduce estrogen levels, normalize hormonal levels and stabilize emotions.

A lady from Botswana recounted how she was motivated to start a Foundation to help other women with endometriosis after she suffered from the disorder that ended her marriage of 13 years. Prof. Wole Atoyebi also narrated an encounter with someone who had the disorder. “We know that in different parts of the world it takes 6-19 years to diagnose and most of them present with infertility. By then most have severe endometriosis, so we think it’s better to look at it in adolescents, so we brought the experts who know about treatment of the disorder in adolescents.”
