Endometriosis: Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus is found elsewhere in the body. Endometrial lesions can be found anywhere in the pelvic cavity including on the ovaries and fallopian tubes. The most common symptom of endometriosis is pelvic pain. The pain often coincides with menstrual flow but in more severe cases may occur independent of menstruation. For many women, the pain of endometriosis is so severe and debilitating that it impacts their lives in significant ways. Valley’s Fertility Center offers medical and surgical treatments for endometriosis. Medical treatments include administration of gonadotropin releasing agonists, antiandrogens and progestins. Surgical treatments include removal of endometrial cysts through laparoscopy and fulguration of endometrial lesions. In most cases , a combination of medical and surgical treatments are employed.
