As we mentioned in other articles, endometriosis, growing somewhere else other than the endometrium also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle, building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period. Hysterectomy is always the last resort in treating endometriosis for women who have exhausted all treatments without success, or endometrial tissues have become cancerous her doctor may suggest some kind of hysterectomy. Besides hormone replacement therapy there are many other choices of natural estrogen therapy available that we will discuss in this article.

I. Other conventional medications

a) Progestogins hormone based medication such as megestrol acetate is often used to treat depression and helps to reduce hot flash and other symptoms of menopause but does have side-effects of enhancing weight gain.
b) Medication that is used to treat hypertension such as clonidine also helps relieve symptoms of menopause in some women but does have side-effects of fatigue and dizziness.

II. Vitamins C and Bioflavonoids

Bioflavonoids is a type of phyto-chemical that can be found plentiful in citrus fruits. It helps to increase levels of estrogen which is vital to reduce hot flash, vagina dryness, and fluid retention. Intake of bioflavonoids and vitamin C together help to increase the maximum digestive absorption.

III. Herbs
