How will I know which treatment is right for me?

You and your healthcare provider can discuss the benefits and risks of each treatment option, based on your condition. The method used to treat your condition will depend on the nature of your problem and the severity of your symptoms.

Personal factors, such as your desire to have children in the future, will also affect the treatment options that are best for you.
