Endometriosis (Endo) is a common health problem and affects more than 10% of women of childbearing age. It happens when tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus and on other areas where it doesn't belong. Endometriosis growths are not cancerous, but may swell and bleed, causing other problems. Although there is no cure for endometriosis, a variety of treatment options exist.

Get the Treatment you Need

Treatment for endometriosis usually involves medication or surgery, depending on signs and symptoms. Surgery is typically a final resort treatment if initial treatments fail. Alpha prescribes FDA-approved medications.

Hormonal Contraceptives

If you are not trying to get pregnant, hormonal birth control is generally the first step in treatment. Hormonal treatment can be effective in reducing or eliminating the pain of endometriosis, and works only as long as it is used.

GnRH Agonist or Antagonists

If you are trying to get pregnant, you may be prescribed a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist or antagonists. These medications stop the body from making the hormones responsible for ovulation, the menstrual cycle, and the growth of endometriosis.

What is the link between infertility and endometriosis?

Almost 50% of women with infertility have endometriosis. Inflammation from endometriosis may damage the sperm or egg or interfere with their movement through the fallopian tubes and uterus. In severe cases of endometriosis, the fallopian tubes may be blocked by adhesions or scar tissue.
