Hi and welcome to HCM

Thanks for posting your query here.

Endometriosis is presence of endometrial tissue in other than uterus. It may present in ovaries, tubes, peritoneum or cervix. Endometrial tissue is the cause for menstruation in the uterus. It is the periodical shedding of endometrium which results in monthly menstruation. Hence whereever the tissue is, because of hormonal effect it sheds off. If it is in ovary the endometrial tissue along with blood collects and forms a chocolate colour fluid filled cyst.

The definitive treatment is excision of the tissue. It depends on the site and extent of the tissue.
If it is not operable the treatment consists of hormones.

Shatavari is an ayurveda medicine. Its a time honoured medicine. It gives wonderful results. For endometrial bleeding it works. Because you have a scattered endometrium it effects all the tissue. same like danogen.

Hence both the mode of therapies are the same. But I suggest you to follow either one treatment. Because both the therapies effect by the influence of hormones.

Hope this is helpful to you
