I am starting to take CBD oil to help reduce my pain and I am concerned it is going to interfere with the birh control I am on. Does anyone know if its cbd or thc in general that interferes with how estrogen based birth control works? Just a little worried I am going to be decreasing the efficacy of my birth control and therfore my endometriosis will come back faster or I will have more breakthrough bleeding.
After trying all possible medical treatments and them not working- I’d like to know if any one has had any success stories with acupuncture , naturopath etc?? And if any gold coasters can recommend anyone ? Thanks :)

I use hot water bottle constantly and nothing seems to help me .
I had a csection almost 2 years ago. And I went on the injection for 3 months then I stopped it. And since then I've been in extreme pain. My chest seems to be the worst. So bad I quit smoking. All xrays and sonars are clean. I'm thankful for that. But I can't deal with the pain. My gynaecologist suspects endo. But does not want to do surgery. I'm going to ask her to please do surgery. If it's on or near my lungs it's gotta go. I can't even pick my baby up its so bad.
I was only recently diagnosed with endometriosis this past week. I always had very bad menstrual cycles since the age of 13. At 15 I finally made the decision to go on Depo Provera as I couldn’t take the pain any longer. Fast forward 9 years to now I’m recovery from laparoscopic surgery as I had a cyst removed from my ovary. Diring the surgery he found endometriosis on my pelvic wall, ovary, and tubes as well… read more
I am desperately looking for a third opinion. My doctor has had me on Lupron for almost 2years now (started it April 2016 and went off last year for a few months then resumed. Still on it.) I am tired of this crap and need to find another option, though I'm allergic to estrogen or my body can't take it. My doctor wants to keep me on Lupron long term and he said there's no known long term effects "that we know of". Anyone know a good Endocrinologist?
I was diagnosed with PCOS a few years ago and 5 different contraceptive pills and excruciating pain later my doc diagnosed me with Endometriosis. Instead of immediately going the surgical route we decided to give Visanne a try. My doc told me that I would have to take something like Visanne after any laparoscopy, so I figured it was worth a try. The first month was touch and go but by month 2 it was a load better, however the side effects kicked in and… read more
I have been doing a lot of research for the laparoscopy, and I have read that as oppose to burning off we should really be getting excision. How do you go about find a doctor that does excision as oppose to the burning? Also is there a pain difference/recovery difference between these two methods? Thanks for your help! I’m so glad I found this site. I’ve felt really alone in all this before I found this site.
I already had my uterus, left ovary, and cervix removed because of my endometriosis. I just had another laparoscopic surgery earlier this month because my pain has been back for a year and when they did it, they couldn’t find any endometriosis this time and now I’m at a loss as to why I’m still hurting a so bad and it’s the same pain as last time.
How long has it taken for anyone here to get their period after stopping Visanne?
I stopped mine on 23 February and for the last week and a half I have felt like I have my period, but there is nothing at all.
