Has Anyone Used Aspen-Diegnogest/Visanne To Help With Heavy Flow Or Micronor/Movisse And What Side Effects Did You Experience?

Has Anyone Used Aspen-Diegnogest/Visanne To Help With Heavy Flow Or Micronor/Movisse And What Side Effects Did You Experience?

I have been prescribed both in the past and haven't used either as I was concerned about the side effects, especially with Aspen-Diegnogest/Visanne but my flow is out of control and I have endo in many places included bladder and rectum so that makes it worse. I have only used Naproxen for years for the pain but I have been beyond "managing" for a long time now, especially with the flow and I have also learned/realized that this treatment plan does not actually "treat" endo which… read more

Anyone Seen Dr. Sarah Scattolon Or Dr. Matthew Lombardi For Their Endometriosis?

Anyone Seen Dr. Sarah Scattolon Or Dr. Matthew Lombardi For Their Endometriosis?

I am trying to decide which doctor to be referred to and was wondering if anyone had any good or bad experiences with either of these specialists or if you'd heard anything about them. I had been considering seeing the woman as that made me feel more comfortable but the man seems to have more experience. The woman is newer so doesn't have reviews online. The man has some good and some bad reviews.

Any Advice And Treatment For Co-occurring Joint Pain?

Looking for resources and tips to manage joint pain that seems to cycle with my endo pain. Joint pain is most severe for me in knees and hips. Any input is valued!

Foam rolling, gentle exercise, heat, bath/swimming (being in water generally) and staying away from inflammatory/trigger foods are all things that help me. Good luck :)

Endo In Chest

Endo In Chest

Is it possible to have endo in your chest. Occasionally I have very sharp pains in my chest that feel similar to the pains I have due to my endo. I have gone to a dr about this before but they couldn't figure out the cause and the area that I have the pains in doesn't correspond to any organs so we didn't look any further into it.

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member said:

I had a thoracoscopy which was negative by a chest surgeon prior to Dr Sinervo’s laparoscopy. A physical therapist might be beneficial in figuring out what your chest spasms might be.
