To treat endometriosis, Dr. Halfon first sits down with you to determine how severely the condition affects you and your goals. If your symptoms aren’t severe, Dr. Halfon may recommend over-the-counter medications for pain relief and continue to vigilantly monitor your condition.
Hormonal contraceptives also provide relief by slowing your endometrial growth, but this solution isn’t a permanent fix and isn’t helpful if you’re trying to get pregnant.
If you’re having fertility problems, Dr. Halfon may recommend laparoscopic surgery to remove as much endometrial tissue as possible.
If endometriosis severely compromises your quality of life, Dr. Halfon may recommend a hysterectomy to remove your uterus entirely. Since this is an irreversible decision, Dr. Halfon helps you weigh your options and works with you on alternative solutions first.
