Abstract

The majority of women with endometriosis report symptoms starting in adolescence, yet endometriosis is often a delayed diagnosis in this patient population. Given that endometriosis is felt to be a progressive disease with increasing morbidities over time, such as structural defects and infertility, being more aggressive with pursuing the diagnosis is warranted. Once the diagnosis of endometriosis is made, various medical and surgical treatment modalities are available, and this article will review the most current treatment recommendations.
