Abstract

Endometriosis is a gynecological disease, which causes significant physiological pain but also psychological distress leading to decreased quality of life for those afflicted with the disease. Though researchers have investigated this disease for over 90 years, there is still much information unknown about its pathophysiology, hence impeding the development of effective treatment options. In addition, the difficulty to diagnose the disease using non-invasive measures increases the prevalence of this disease among reproductive aged women. This review discusses the challenges that the scientific and medical communities endure combating endometriosis along with the social and financial burdens of patients whom suffer from endometriosis. Finally this review highlights the positive and negative side effects of current treatment options, discusses some alternative treatment and new potential treatment options that have shown variable success in reducing the symptoms associated with endometriosis.
