Hi - I'm curious to know who uses castor oil packs on here (castor oil smeared over pelvic area, covered in 2 small sheets of white towelling, hot water bottle on top), or who has tried them in the past. For those who use them - how often do you use them, and how long for at a time? Do you find them useful for any aspect of endo in particular? Do you put them over your uterus, or over your liver?
I go in phases of using them, and tend to keep them on my abdomen all through the night as I sleep. I've not tried them on my liver. I have found that if I use them towards the end of my cycle I bring my period on quicker and it is often heavier than normal, so have learned to avoid this time. Has anyone else found this?
I'm just really interested to know how others have got on with them as it's not something I've seen come up on this forum before.
