EndometriosisEndometriosis occurs when uterine-lining tissue develops outside the uterine cavity. This can cause abdominal pain, pelvic pain, and may be associated with infertility. Endometriosis can be treated with:
  • Continuous birth control pills, or shots (Depo Provera)
  • Lupron shot
  • Suppressive hormone therapy
  • Laparoscopic surgery to reduce endometrial lesions and remove scar tissue
  • Hysterectomy (as a last resort)
