Dianna’s Story (Endometriosis)

Dianna's Story EndometriosisMy doctors just diagnosed me with endometriosis. We decided to take a conservative therapy approach, despite the horrible monthly pain, because I have not had children yet.

In the last couple weeks since my diagnosis though, because of increased pain and the pain medication not relieving me yet, they have decided to move forward with a Lupron-Depot treatment instead of trying Mirena or Depo-Provera to keep me from ovulating. I’m pretty worried about going through the side effects with Lupron after just starting to date again. My early to mid 20’s were spent in healing from a sexual assault.

Hopefully this will be managed in the near future, and the pain will be bearable soon.

  1. Thanks for sharing your story. Good luck to you in your journey with endometriosis. xo

  2. I’ve had endometriosis for years and have had multiple surgeries. Through my journey I have done a lot of research . Keeping your body from ovulating may stop the monthly pains but it will not actually cure it and causes more unwanted/unhealthy side effects to your body. I have found that clinical nutrition works the best. Its definitely something that you have to stay on top of, meaning that its a lifestyle change. Overall this treatment helps with the pain AND assists your body in balancing your hormones through nutrition.

    With that being said; it really depends on what your end goal is… to cover the pot hole or to repave the road. I wish you the best on your journey to recovery. Let me know if you have questions:)

  3. I have tried the Lupron, it was very hard on my body and after seven months I couldn’t do it anymore. Just be careful and never hesitate to tell the doctor if you want to stop the treatment. My heart goes out to all suffering from Endometriosis. I have had it since I was 12 years old. Stay strong and know that you have many supporters.
