Medical Treatment of Endometriosis

How is endometriosis treated medically

The medical treatment of endometriosis is also known as menstrual suppression therapy. It works on the principle that if periods are stopped completely for several months, the endometriosis will regress and symptoms will diminish. The drawback of this approach is that  the treatment takes 6-9 months during which time a pregnancy cannot occur. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that the endometriosis will have disappeared. 

What are the side effects of this treatment

The most commonly used drug in the medical treatment of endometriosis is danazol. However, most women who take danazol experience side effects. Side effects include weight gain, reduction in breast size, oily skin and deepening of the voice. Medical researchers are trying to come out with alternative drugs that have fewer or no side effects.
