Hi, my name is Lova. I have endometriosis, and this blog is a sort of notebook where I file all the interesting articles/studies/researches that I find about this condition. There won’t be much about conventional medicine here as my focus is on alternative medicine.
Diagnosed via a laparoscopy 14 years ago (stage 3 severe endometriosis)
6 months danazol (no pain while on it but the endo pain came back a few months after the end of the treatment)
6 months of another gnrh treatement (no pain while on it but the endo pain came back a few months after the end of the treatment)
7 years of IUD mirena coil (no pain while on it but the endo pain came back a few months after the end of the treatment)
a second laparoscopy where adhesions were removed (no improvement in pain after this operation)
diagnosed with adenomyosis
I am now trying to conceive so cannot have any more conventional treatements (except more laparoscopies which also have their own risks of creating more adhesions, and adhesions mean more pain and more negative impact on fertility).
I am curently taking various supplements and natural remedies, and the 2 things that are working the most in terms of pain reduction are stystemic enzymes: SERRAPEPTASE, NATTOKINASE, and WOBENZYM N.
UPDATE: I now find that LETROZOLE works much better than systemic enzymes.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to share your own endometriosis story. I am particulary interested in learning about how you manage your pain and about your fertility protocol.
