I suffered from severe endometriosis for over 10 years in my late 20’s to 30’s. I saw three fertility doctors and went through all the fertility treatments including surgeries, tests, etc. I finally was put on Lupron followed by powerful fertility drugs to try and conceive. For over a two year period I was taking powerful fertility drugs every other cycle. I had lots of eggs, artificial insemination, but no pregnancies, it just couldn’t happen.
When I was 40 and ready to have a hysterectomy I found a doctor who could help with my endo rather than getting a hysterectomy. His name is Dr. John Mathias in Houston, Texas. He found out that endometriosis can be a symptom of hypoglycemia. I was tested and found out that I definitely was hypoglycemic with wide swings in blood sugar levels (as low as 50 during the test).
He immediately put me on a low glycemic diet. My painful endo symptoms, irritable bowel symptoms, headaches, and other hypoglycemia symptoms were gone on his diet after a month.
One year later, at the age of 41, I got pregnant by only timing cycles (and without fertility drugs)! Finally, an answer to many of my prayers!!!!
I gave birth to a beautiful baby, an angel named Rebecca, who is 10 years old now. Please believe me you can reduce your endo symptoms, feel better, and get pregnant!!!
PS: if you can’t see him because you can’t get to Houston, read his study from Google called “Low Glycemic Diets,” or try to find a doctor who will recommend one instead of drugs or surgeries.
His study is acknowledged as “genius” at its best by Dr Robert Franklin, who helped the Bushes have their twins, a retired world famous fertility expert mentioned in Laura Bush’s book.
PPS: I remain on his diet at the age of 53 and went through menopause without hot flashes or other painful symptoms.
