Endometriosis Next Steps
Because the levels of hormones that affect endometriosis are related to the menstrual cycle, endometriosis can be expected to lessen in intensity or, at the very least, stabilize during periods when hormonal levels are not in constant fluctuation. These conditions include pregnancy and other times when there is a lack of menstruation. Women also tend to notice a reduction in their symptoms once they reach menopause.
