Endometriosis/How long does it take to develop endo

Endometriosis can be a scary and debilitating condition. Both physically and emotionally. I suffer from the same for 20 years. In the same position as Martha, not able to tolerate BC, I did know where to turn. As an alternative, I sought treatment in eastern medicine. I went to an Acupuncturist (who is also an herbalist), and use Maya Abdominal Massage and various other modalities. I learned some things that I already knew, that endometriosis is an estrogen based condition (I no longer call it a disease). So there are nutritional components to taking care of yourself. I have also found that my emotional state is a contributing factor. I would say that if western medicine is not relieving your symptoms, try a different approach. What works for me may not work for you but there are others available that may offer better results for you. I have gone from spending 8 days a month on percocet to 2 or less advil a month. There is a possibility of relief without a hysterectomy (which does not always resolve the problem).
Best of luck and blessings for healing.

I had a tubal a year ago and just had a hysterectomy a week ago. My ob swears that he did not see the endometriosis in me when he did my tubal or he would of done a hystrectomy right there and then. For a years I have suffered but the painful intercoarse only came after my last child. I had a hysterecotmy because I could not stop bleeding. When the doctor opened me up I had severe endometriosis wrapped aroud my intestines,kidneys,blADDER, and ovaries. So if you get your answer I would like to know too.
