There is no cure for endometriosis. However, there are treatments that may help reduce pain and restore fertility. Among the most common treatments:
Pain medication — If the woman has a mild case of endometriosis and little pain, her doctor may suggest drugs that inhibit the production of prostaglandins, which are released from the endometrium, such as ibuprofen, indomethicin and naproxen sodium. The doctor may also recommend over-the-counter pain relievers such as aspirin or acetaminophen.
