I am currently treating endometriosis and have questions.

What to Ask Your Doctor

  • Are there things I can’t do during treatment?

    Your doctor can tell you what’s OK and what’s not.

  • Can complementary or alternative medicine help?

    Your doctor can help you figure out what might help your endometriosis.

  • What side effects can treatment cause?

    It can be helpful to know what’s normal and what isn’t.




  • Can surgery help if other treatments aren’t working?

    It’s not the best choice for everyone, but it may work for you. Find out if it’s an option.

  • Should I consider a clinical trial?

    Researchers are always testing new treatments to see how well they work and if they're safe. If you join a clinical trial, you might get one before it gets approval from the FDA. Talk to your doctor about your options and the pros and cons.
