Hi ladies. I hope some of you can get back to me with what you've been doing since being diagnosed with endo. I'm newly diagnosed, just a couple of months ago, I'm 25. Found out because I needed an endo cyst removed from left ovary (7cm). They found severe endo while in there. I'm 3 weeks post-op now, healing well. Time has come to decide how to treat it further and suppress endo. My doctor of course is saying birth control continuously and no other alternative. They point blank said nothing else suggested out there works. But then speaking to a naturopath MD who has endo herself, as well as listening to other naturopaths, they absolutely believe that endo can be suppressed and even healed through natural ways like nutrition, supplements, herbal medicine etc. And to avoid hormones because it will only throw your body into more chaos, since the cause of endo is a hormonal imbalance to begin with. So I'm really torn. I would love nothing more than to try a natural approach, but I'm terrified of it coming back and growing cysts again. I don't want to go through another surgery it sucked! And every surgery you have after the first one, only does more harm than good in all aspects. So surgery is definitely not a solution. I feel like there's very little information out there on what people actually tried, and what could be effective. So ladies, all your input will be very appreciated. What have you tried? What worked, what didn't? What have you heard others try. Please share! Thank you!
