Combined oral contraceptives (COC) and progestogens are widely used for the treatment of endometriosis. The objective of the study is to compare the efficacy of dienogest 2 mg vs continuous oral levonorgestrel/EE (levonorgestrel 0.1 mg/ethinyl estradiol 0.02 mg) on ovarian endometriomas, deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE), chronic pelvic pain (CPP), dyspareunia, analgesic use, quality of life (QoL), compliance and side effects.

Abstract

Combined oral contraceptives (COC) and progestogens are widely used for the treatment of endometriosis. The objective of the study is to compare the efficacy of dienogest 2 mg vs continuous oral levonorgestrel/EE (levonorgestrel 0.1 mg/ethinyl estradiol 0.02 mg) on ovarian endometriomas, deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE), chronic pelvic pain (CPP), dyspareunia, analgesic use, quality of life (QoL), compliance and side effects.
