Looking For Holistic/natural Endo Pain Management

Looking For Holistic/natural Endo Pain Management

This is my first post here, but I am at a loss at this point. I started struggling with severe endo pain over a year ago and got a definitive diagnosis last summer when they did a laparoscopic incision surgery. The surgery and birth control they put me on after did not reduce my pain levels at all, and so my doctor recommended Depot Lupron.

A month ago I got my third 3 month shot, and while I love the endo pain relief, I’m finally realizing the Lupron shots are the cause of significant other… read more

I find yoga helpful but also too much pelvic opening during it can set the pain off for me. I have also recently changed my diet quite a lot, I’ve gone dairy free, sugar free and almost alcohol free… read more

What Is Better Lupron Or IUD

What Is Better Lupron Or IUD

I have to make a decision between Lupron or IUD as the birth control pill is no longer an option for me. What does everyone feel is better for pain relief and elimination of growth?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member said:

Dose Luperon Depto Get Worse Every Time You Get The Shot?

Dose Luperon Depto Get Worse Every Time You Get The Shot?

So far I have had 3 1 month shots and each month my symptoms are worse. I have bad hot flashes and I am also on progesterone tablets.

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member said:

The hot flashes I had on Lupron were severe compared the ones I have now: post- hysterectomy/ ovaries removed. I compare it to having Pitocin that causes labor artificially and makes the contractions… read more

Orilissa Treatment

Orilissa Treatment

Hey ladies! I will be having my left ovary removed soon. I keep becoming septic and in and out of the hospital. My Doctor would like me to start on Orilissa after my surgery. Can I hear your stories about this medication?

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member said:

I was on the max dose for the max length of time for Lupron and Orilissa. With both of them, my period eventually stopped (which was beneficial for me because with no period means no pain or symptoms… read more

Lupron

Lupron

Hi ladies. I am new here and i guess relatively new to the world of endo. I went to the ER about 2 month's ago for pain that wasnt going away. They found a large cyst on my left ovary after multiple tests. I found an amazing dr and he did excision surgery a month ago. He said i have stage 4 endo. He removed the cyst and the endo he could but unfortunately alot remains. I am starting Lupron on Monday (dr also stated hes putting me on an "add on" medication as well). Any positive experiences on Luread more

Hey All, Has Any One Had Some Kind Of Skin Rash Or Inflammation Of The Skin While On The Depoprovera Injection?

Hey All, Has Any One Had Some Kind Of Skin Rash Or Inflammation Of The Skin While On The Depoprovera Injection?

I read that the depo shot can have a rash side effect which is apparently called the depo rash. How common is that? I keep learning of new side effects as I research and I'm trying to figure out if I should stay on this type of hormone treatment. Thank you

A MyEndometriosisTeam Member said:

I agree. I have been taking Nortrel continuously since June, 2005. It has helped with the pain and PMDD.

Lupron

Lupron

Tell me your experiences! On Tuesday we had a phone consult with an endo surgeon finally and she said she’d want me on lupron 2-3 months pre-op (surgical wait time is 4-6 months here). The following day our RE cancelled our IVF retrieval as the maturity of the follicles was not synchronized. We have a consult with him in a few weeks to plan for the next attempt, but he mentioned briefly that he would maybe try me on lupron for a few months before an egg retrieval also.

Thanks for the info kachoo and thanks for sharing your experience Jillian! It sounds awful… and this is what I was worried about. I feel kind of stuck… can’t get pregnant because of endo, failed… read more
