Jane Harrison Hohner, RN, RNP responded:
Dear Anon: I am unaware if there is a specific hormonal treatment that works best on endometriomas (blood filled cysts). Usually the medications that treat endo also suppress ovulation and can thus reduce the incidence of "regular" ovarian cysts as well.

Here are a couple of links to information about treatment options for endometriosis:

Congrats on breast feeding your baby!!

Yours,
