Unfortunately, there is no cure for endometriosis at present. However, there are treatments to relieve the symptoms. The best treatments should take into the following considerations:
  • age
  • severity of the symptoms
  • need for children
Treatments for endometriosis pain fall into three general categories:
  • Pain medications: an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) or naproxen (Aleve, others), to help ease painful menstrual cramps
  • Hormone therapy: they may slow endometrial tissue growth and prevent new implants of endometrial tissue
  • Surgical treatment:  some surgical treatments can provide significant, although short-term, pain relief from endometriosis
In a word, options for a best treatment should be made under the guidance of your doctor. Keywords: cure endometriosis, endometriosis cure, best endometriosis treatments
