5. Justification of claims
Description of treatments, balanced info

Although there is no cure for endometriosis, there are a variety of treatment options. Treatment may provide pain relief, stop the progression of the disease, and preserve or restore fertility. The type of treatment recommended depends on whether or not you want to get pregnant. If your only concern is to reduce the pain and bleeding, taking hormone medication will stop ovulation and shrink the lesions. However, this therapy also prevents pregnancy.
