Hello,

Removing the ovaries was previously considered an effective treatment for endometriosis. Recently, doctors are going away from this method of treatment as it may cause early menopause and the related health issues it may cause (problems with the bones, flushes, emotional changes, heart problems, weight gain, etc).

There are other effective treatments for endometriosis such as oral contraception, Mirena IUD, aromatase inhibitors, antiinflammatory drugs, etc.

I hope this answers your query.
I remain at your disposal in case further medical assistance is needed.

Regards,
Dr. Antoneta Zotaj
