How does Danazol treat endometriosis?

Danazol may be used to treat endometriosis, which is a condition in which the tissue that normally lines the uterus grows elsewhere in the reproductive system. This condition causes bleeding to occur wherever the endometrial tissue grows, which may lead to cysts and scar tissue. Danazol can help treat endometriosis by stopping the growth and function of that endometrial tissue. It has this effect because it blocks the production of certain hormones that cause menstruation and growth of endometrial tissue. When the tissue stops functioning, it stops bleeding, which reduces symptoms like pelvic pain and infertility. It's important to talk to your doctor to determine whether danazol is right for treating your endometriosis.
