In terms of medical therapies, the most commonly used are the combined oral contraceptive pill, the progesterone only pill (the mini pill), low dose progesterone, or the coil. It should be noted that none of these therapies actually get rid of the disease. They simply reduce the severity of the symptoms in a proportion of, but not all, patients.
It’s also possible to use extremely powerful drugs that releasing hormone agonists, which induce a medical menopause. However, these are drugs with severe side-effect profiles and as such are only used for a very short time period. In fact, they are only licensed for a six month period. Again these drugs do not get rid of the disease, they simply make the symptoms less severe in a proportion of patients. Within six months of stopping any of the drugs mentioned above, the vast majority of patients will have found that their symptoms have returned.
