Today I had another appointment with a gynaecologist. It is one year since my laparoscopic operation and for the past few months my pain has just been elevated through the roof. I have received the Mirena coil a year ago to prevent the Endometriosis from sticking its head out even further. Today however I asked the gynae to take it out as it caused cysts to form.

Now I am in the process of thinking what the best alternative will be for treatment. The doctor has recommended me to try out the 'pill' again (just a different one).

So far I have also changed my diet (eliminating sugar) and starting doing Yoga. Hopefully that will help...

Has anybody else done diet changes and so forth and is it helping?

Hi hun.

Sorry to hear that you are still suffering from pain. I have recently 6 weeks ago been diagnosed with Endometriosis and Adenomyosis.

I have done a diet change to eat really healthy foods. All milk and eggs and meat are organic as there is a link to this encouraging estrogen which feeds the endo.

I have also started taking a supplements I'm currently taking:

Omega 3


Vitamin B complex

Women's multi vitamin

Evening primrose oil



The tumeric has been recently added the Dr suggested this as it is a good anti inflammatory as is omega 3.

I have found these have made a difference to the pain I think it's due tohelping the inflammation .

Hope this helps

Hi Jo,

Thank you so much for your input. So sorry to hear about your diagnosis. All the best with the diet change.

I already take: Multivitamins, Evening Primrose Oil and I will try the Turmeric and others as well.

All the best to you!



Thanks hun. Hope it all works out for you and you manage to find something that helps without the side effects.

Yeah it's worth a try hun hope it works for you xx


Thank you. Take care xx


Hi BVR1,

I agree with Mummy1982 re diet and supplements and glad to see you are already going down this route. Research as much as you can and find things that work for you. Good website peacewithendo.com She also has a great book. Also endoempowered.com

Were you operated on by an accredited endo specialist? If not, choose one here bsge.org.uk/ec-BSGE-accredited-centres.php and tell your GP to refer you. You have the right to choose on the NHS and you need treatment from a specialist in your particular condition, not a general gynae.

Look up the board member Lindle for her informative posts healthunlocked.com/lindle In particular read healthunlocked.com/endometr...


Hi Brownlow,

Thank you for letting me know. I know it was an accredited specialist. I have purchased a book called ''Endometriosis: A key to healing and fertility through Nutrition'' by Dian Shepperson Mills MA & Michael Vernon PhD HCLD. So far it has shone a light on many uncertainties.

Take care.
