Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Since you are having chocolate cysts in your ovary, it is best to get them removed before the endometrium spreads further into your abdominal cavity as it is a very painful condition.If you opt for this surgery it is better to get your uterus also removed alongwith to prevent further complications.

You can get rid of this problem by taking oral contraceptive pills for a long time or by becoming pregnant,or taking long term progestogens.
