Abstract

Endometriosis is one of the main illnesses affecting women during their fertile age. Symptoms caused by endometriosis include dysmenorrhea, chronic pelvic pain, dyspareunia, menstrual disorders and infertility. Apart from surgical and medical treatment, including hormonal therapies, different alternative treatments exist. Ayurveda, homeopathy, dietary considerations as well as herbal therapies can be used as supplementary treatment for complaints caused by endometriosis. This article gives an overview over these alternative treatments, which many women experience as additionally useful.
