My 1st surgeons nurse said endometriosis is hereditary & I was told she was the expert on the matter because she had researched it a lot (about ~5yrs ago). I recently saw the best of the best expert endometriosis surgeon (aka pelvic pain specialist surgeon) I could find n the country closest to me because I NEEDED to fix this already! Found amazing Dr Scott Crawford who examined me & said nope! Don't need a 3rd surgery because I don't have endo now I am just suffering from pelvic floor muscle spasms!! Get yourselves checked by the absolute best of the best girls!! Maybe u can simply do women's health physical therapy (Lauren Hasquet AZ rocks!) to relieve the pain caused by pelvic floor muscle spasms. It's not an overnight fix so stick w it & I hope this helps you all like it has helped me!!!!! I still have regular discomfort, pain sometimes but NOTHING putting me out of commission on anything anymore!!! I now know how to stretch my body n ways to find comfort & use a THERAWAND to relax my inside muscles anytime I have pain. +EXTRA Turmeric!! THE BEST to u all!!
