Available treatments

Endometriosis symptoms can be helped with a combination of pain relief and anti-inflammatory medications, pelvic floor physiotherapy, dietary changes, and alternative therapies such as acupuncture.

 

Hormone therapy treatments to limit, regulate or temporarily stop your periods may also benefit. For more severe cases, surgery to remove Endometriosis may be necessary, if other treatments are not effective.

These treatments cannot necessarily cure Endometriosis, but they may help reduce pain, prevent, help regulate or limit periods, improve fertility outcomes, and potentially enable you to live as active as possible.

What may work for one person, may not always work for another

Since Endometriosis can cause a wide variety of problems, treatments are individualised – meaning what may work for one person, may not always work for another. When deciding which treatment is best suited to you, your medical team will consider several factors, such as your age, your medical history, the severity of your symptoms, whether you’re looking to start a family, either now or later, and various other individualised circumstances, along with any possible side effects, risks, and complications.
