A common treatment for endometriosis could actually be making things worse

It has long been believed that the best way to treat endometriosis, a chronic inflammatory condition that affects one in 10 women globally, is by performing laparoscopic surgery to remove damaged tissue from the body.

But experts now say the surgery may not be as effective as once thought in relieving symptoms, and could actually be making things worse for some patients, including those who have developed separate pain conditions as a result of their endometriosis.

    This is a very interesting and useful article. I've actually been wondering if I may have endometriosis for awhile, and I didn't even know there were three different types of it or that there were different treatments for those types. Thank you for posting this, firemonkey!
