I was diagnosed with endometriosis about 7 months ago, and am currently trying a few different treatment options.
I am wondering what you all use for pain treatment. My biggest day-to-day issue is the severe bloating, pain and inflammation of my pelvis. I have recently started introducing the Endo Diet, and though I'm sure it will become effective eventually, I'm still not having much luck.
Does anyone have any tips or tricks about some pain relieving options? I was on a prescribed painkiller which made me very sick, so I've been experimenting with uses of ginger and essential oils for a more natural approach.
Also, has anyone done the medically induced menopause for endo treatment? That is next on our list of 'experiments', but I am incredibly nervous and sad about pursuing this option, as I'm only 23 years old. My doctors have advised me that this will be a very harsh and life-altering treatment plan should we choose to pursue it. Wondering if anyone could shed some light on the pros and cons?
