For all of you suffering with endometriosis please talk to you doctor about an IUD. Research it on the internet. Most American women don't know that the IUD has some a long way and it's the #1 birth control in the world! The safest AND most effective birth control on the market. Plus, you don't have to worry about it for years. Big plus. Most female OB/GYNs use it as birth control. I had one inserted back in March and for the first time since I started my periods (28 years ago!) I have light periods and NO MORE CRAMPS! The first month was bad w/ the cramps and spotting, but after 3 weeks it all went away. I no longer have periods so heavy that I have to miss work or cramps that require me to take Ibuprofen for days on end. Too many women are suffering endlessly.

  • Hi, my doctor believes that i may have Endo. I had an ultrasound done and was told that i need surgery, since my DH and i are TTC. Wher you actually diagnosed with Endo, and now using the IUD to manage it. I'm hoping that we will be able to conceive after my operation. If all goes well, i was thinking of trying the IUD after giving birth.:)
