In the setting of a global pandemic, it is vastly important now more than ever that patients have agency and control over pain management when living with a debilitating chronic pain disease such as endometriosis. We present a review of the available literature on the most popular and easily accessible complementary pain management therapies for endometriosis including Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve stimulator (TENS) units, diets, Cannabidiol (CBD), turmeric, meditation, yoga, and acupuncture. These are worthwhile recommendations; however, the data for each is limited and more research is needed to further support each of its use.
