I've been suffering with Endo since the age of 13. I am now 28 years old. From the 13th-23rd years of my life, I, like most of you had a devastating amount of pain with my periods... sleepless nights and countless visits to the emergency room.

Nobody ever diagnosed me as having Endo, but my husband and I kind of figured it out over the past 2 years on our own... finally, last month during a laproscopy, our suspicions were confirmed and I was diagnosed with stage 4 Endo.

My husband and I were watching television one night and they talked about a doctor in Iran that figured out Vitamin E can dramatically reduce period pain...

Needless to say, we ran out that night and started me on a 400iu daily Vitamin E regime.... my period that was due two weeks later, came, passed, and was still painful... but the next month was a different story... after the 3-4 months, for the first time in my life, I had a NORMAL period with limited amounts of pain.

I'm not talking about 10-15% decrease in pain... I'm talking like I could go walk around in a mall on my period... this was a far cry from laying on a bed in the fetal position for hours on end the previous months.

Let me also point out that Vitamin E WILL NOT TREAT ENDO, it just dramatically reduced my pain....

As for my Endo, I just had my first Luprin shot last week, and so far have had mild/short hot flashes and lot of bleeding... I'm really hoping to get pregnant in the next 365 days...

I really hope this advice helps somebody elses pain somewhere in the world......

  • Hi Kahi! I was just wondering how you have been doing. I read your post back in March. You stated that you was diagnosed with stage 4 Endo. I'm not sure what stage i have. It won't be confirmed until i have surgery. My 1st apt with the RE is Oct 6. I was just wondering about your progress on the meds, and also wondering how soon you and your DH can start trying again. I;m new to this so I'm not sure what to expect after i have surgery. I'm hoping the docitr will give us the green light if the surgery goes ok. I guess it all depends on what stage my endo is. Any way would be nice to hear how you guys are doing.:)
