What is the treatment for intestinal endometriosis?

By Sara Salgado.
Last Update: 01/11/2017

The treatment to be followed will depend on the type of endometriosis, its extent, the severity of the symptoms, the age of the patient and her reproductive desire.

Surgery to remove the affected area of the intestine is usually successful when combined with hormonal treatment with Danazol or GnRH agonists. Otherwise, a hysterectomy may be necessary along with removal of the ovaries and tubes.
