@hogoboom2012:  I have endo.  Took Depo Provera for over five years and loved it.  Also took Lupron for six months, which honestly gave me no side effects aside from the injection hurting like hell.

Now I’m on Loestrin 24 FE (taken continuous without the placebo week), which is doing a pretty great job as well.  I still have cramps occasionally, during which times I take Naproxen for pain and promethazine for nausea.

@zerlina:  I had endometriosis too in late teens and early twenties. I got on the Loestrin in 2002 and stayed on it until 2006. I have been off of it since 2006 with no problems. Before taking the Loestrin, I had 6 laparoscopies, and one laparotomy to remove a grapefruit size cyst on my right ovary. I’m also think working out and lowering my body fat helped the situation.

I have PCOS (but not endo) and also right ovary pain every other month. I’m on Metformin for the PCOS and while I haven’t noticed a huge difference in the ovary pain (3-5 advil usually take care of that), I have had other improvements from it: not as tired as I once was, don’t feel awful after eating, etc.

For BC: I’m just on a standard pill (Estro-step) and have been for years.

Good luck!!
