Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The best treatment for adenomyosis and endometriosis, is hormonal therapy or a hormonal IUD (intrauterine device).

Also, if you are planning for pregnancy, then plan for it immediately. As time passes by the problem may increase and interfere with the fertility. So, it is better you take up pregnancy in the first hand.

However, if you are not planning for pregnancy, then you can go ahead and get a hormonal IUD.

If you have any further doubts, then do get back to me with her age, periods, obstetric history and any other details, which you would like to share.

Thank you doctor,

A local doctor has advised immediate uterus and ovary removal. Is that the only way of treatment? We do not like to have a surgery. Will the treatment suggested by you effective?

  • Surgery is not mandatory until and unless the medications are not working or the symptoms are so severe and the medications are of no relief.

Thank you doctor,

  • That is really good that having relief in itself says that she is responding to medication. So, she can continue taking the medications until she has some problem.
  • Surgery is definitely not the solution.

  • Please try with a hormonal IUD or injectable hormones after consulting your gynecologist.
  • You have many good option these days. But for sure, surgery is not the best option until any of these is not helping her.
