Endometriosis is a female common problem, affecting over 14% of female population. The incidence of this disease is significantly on the rise for various reasons. The progression of endometriosis is growing worryingly, as we call it �??The Disease of the Century�?�. The aim of this study is discussion about the management approaches of endometriosis based on our experiences. In the case of the worldwide problem because of increasing in the rate of endometriosis all over the world, three following strategies should be put in place; first; broad etiological studies, second; developing and planning the preventive health programs for endometriosis as an emerging global health problem and awareness of the people and health systems are the first steps for this strategy and third; developing the treatment or management methods for controlling of the endometriosis, its complications and its signs and symptoms. Based on the third mentioned strategy and with focus on the more effective management methods, we are analyzing the current trend on the developing of the treatment techniques. Nowadays, based on our incomplete knowledge about the endometriosis ethology and pathogenesis, combination therapy (Medical-Surgical) technique for endometriosis treatment is the best choice with the less complication. The �??Sarem Protocol for the Medical- Surgical Treatment�?� is tested for about 400 patients and our results (clinical outcomes) are remarkable. It must be note that, the patients�?? satisfaction is high. Based on our experiences and the nature of the endometriosis, our recommendation is combination therapy (Medical-Surgical) with the specific tested protocol. It is necessary for conducting the wide researches for clearing the etiology (lifestyle and nutrition effects) and disease classification even as a new definition and classification.
