1 in 10 women have endometriosis. It is a chronic disease causing severe pain and infertility. 1 in 10 girls in Australia grow up with symptoms severely compromising their schooling, career path, social growth and ability to be productive citizens. Currently there is no known cure.
Treatment is varied - some women may benefit from simple medications such as Paracetemol or the contraceptive pill to manage symptoms. Others may require surgical treatments such as laparoscopy or a hysterectomy. Others may benefit from alternative therapies such as herbal preparations.
As each person's experience is personal, our doctors can discuss with you your symptoms, their effect on your quality of life and treatments you may have previously tried. Our doctors will then work with you to find the most suitable treatment pathway.
