Books, so many and which to choose?

I just had my lap today and have endometriosis. I'm pleased in a way as I've been a like the most depressed bear with a migraine for the past 8 months. I feel like I can take control now of what's going on with my body.

I've had a merina coil fitted, but I've also heard about some books that might help, but there are so many to choose from. I was wondering if anyone has read the following books and if they would recommend them or any others?

Endometriosis for Dummies.

Take Control of Your Endometriosis: Help Relieve Symptoms with Simple Diet and Lifestyle Changes.

Endometriosis: A Key to Healing Through Nutrition.

Thanks again =D

Endometriosis for Dummies every time - I was diagnosed 21 years ago and I still dip into it from time to time. It's a brilliant book, written simply with no jargon and a sense of humour!


I agree with Chrissie66, Endometriosis for dummies covered everything I wanted to know in an easy to understand and often humorous way. Yo can dip in & out of it and there are sections specifically for friends & family to read to help them understand too.


Endo for dummies is a must. Easy to read and simple to find particular pieces of info.


Endo for dummies is great easy to read and under stand also I got living well with endometriosis by Kerry Ann Morris bought both on amazon good luck with your journey x


Good luck with the recovery, it takes a few days to get over the surgery. I would certainly read a general book about endo, it will help you understand the condition and help you choose the right treatment etc. The two nutrition books are very good and I have found them very helpful, nutrition can go a long way in helping to manage the symptoms.


i've got endometriosis for dummies and Taking control of your endometriosis and dummies is by far the better one, so imformative and helpful.


Thanks everyone! I really appreciate all your help.
