Does anyone manage endometriosis without birth control?

Does anyone manage endometriosis without birth control?

I have been taking continuous birth control (about 1 period a year) for about 8 years. My endo is very well managed right now with minimal symptoms.

What tips do you have for coping with night sweats?

What tips do you have for coping with night sweats?
