@ecomaha:  I am so sorry:( You know… I have heard SO many stories about people “giving up” on TTC and as soon as they give it a rest or start looking into adoption BOOM they get pregnant. But I do think your doing the best thing. Get your body as healthy as possibly, eating/working out have a clear head and things can take a turn for you. I tried and still do semi dairy and gluten free. It’s hard! I just do the best I can but I know people who are really strict with it and have had great pain relief from it.

@Wispy:   I get acupuncture and take herbs. You will see from my update below that my endo is back in full swing but I still believe in it SO much. It helps my pain, it helps with fertility and you just leave feeling like you did something good for your body. I def recommend. Find one that specializes in womens health issues.

**update from me..* I got my abdominal ultrasound results back. I have an 11 cm cyst on my ovary (most likely an endometrioma) Honestly, I was so relieved. After being so so worried I had fibroids I feel better knowing It’s just my endo.  So it’s time for another lap! I felt so good after I healed from my last one 2 years ago that I am actually looking forward to it. Living in pain is such a downer.. So our TTC in Dec may start a month or so early after my surgery. Scary! Just have to see what my doctor says after surgery. How my ovaries and tubes look..

@ecomaha:  that makes sense about needing to take TTC off the front burner. . .it is so frustrating to have something on the ‘front burner’ and never gets cooked, if you want to extend the analogy.

but please don’t give up hope!

i totally am not meaning this to be a version of ‘relax and it will happen’ but I do think it would be *so* amazing if over the next few months while you are mentally ‘taking a break’, if God decided to bless you with a child at that time. . just to hammer in the point that He is in control.

anyway, good luck with the lifestyle changes! I have been gluten free for a couple of months and its still hard for me! just about every other day I contemplate giving up dairy, and then I decide that I like chai tea lattes too much πŸ™‚

@pretzel:  thanks! I need to check out each of those links more. i really agree with the theory behind NaPro from what I’m reading here, but it just seems draining to have to get established with yet another doctor. maybe it’s what we need though. we’ll see; if the next few months are not successful then our RE has already recommended injectibles. at that point, NaPro might be a more natural way to go instead. maybe in the meantime I will start drinking green tea!

@mrs.stormylove:  thanks for the welcome. . .I’m so sorry to hear that you have to have yet another procedure. 11 cm is HUGE! ugh. sorry to hear it.

for ladies who have endo, I have a kind of silly question. . .how did you get diagnosed? I know the gold standard is a lap but did any of you get pre-emptively diagnosed based on symptoms? I have wondered for a while if I have it, however when I went to see the RE i guess my pain reports weren’t high enough for that to be a big consideration in his mind.

@hellorebecca:  The only way to truely be diagnosed with endo is a lap which is how I was diagnosed. I never had pain, never had bad periods and one night a couple years ago I ended up in the ER with horrible abdominal pain and after an ultrasound and CT they found a large cyst on my ovary. Had a lap to remove it which is when they dx it.  I was pretty surprised I had “severe endo” without any symptoms but from the cyst. I was lucky I guess. I’ve been pretty pain free since the surgery except for the last maybe 6 months which makes sense since I have another cyst.  But I have known many people whose doctors have informally diagnosed them with endo based on symptoms alone.

Hey girls, I was going to PM this to

@ecomaha:  but thought this could come in handy for others too. I know we are all trying to do as much natural stuff as possible and I am always looking up things on other websites but found this particular website SO helpful. If you haven’t already seen this check it out. The page it is currently on is geared toward endometriosis but if you go to the home page you can check everything else out. It’s really great for diet, supplements and lots of detailed info/ studies. Anways @ecomaha there is a something called goldenseal root that is a natural antibiotic for the reproductive system to help heal any reproductive infections since you said you may have one they didn’t want to treat. Check out the nutrition part too, I am dedicating myself to a dairy free gluten free diet now too since Ive got an upcoming surgery.

@mrs.stormylove:  Thanks for the link – that’s very cool!  I’ll have to do some more research.  Looks like my gluten free, dairy free, anti inflammatory diet is a good idea.  Maybe not that much FUN but  a good idea πŸ™‚  I’ve been working on ramping up the fruits and veggies too!

@pretzel:  Have you heard anything about royal jelly having adverse effects on endo?  I’m interested in the Bee Propolis but a lot of the pills seem to come with royal jelly in them.

@mrs.stormylove:  thanks for sharing your endo story. I think it will always be a question mark in my mind. I certainly fit the ‘profile’ from what I’ve read online except that I don’t have *that* much pain.

especially now that i’ve been gluten free I notice my period pain is less.

and yes–thanks for the link! I don’t know if I can add one more supplement to my shelf of supplements πŸ˜‰ but maybe in the future.

i really really admire you newly dairy free ladies, I just can’t bring myself to do it. not just the chai tea lattes but the froyo. . .how do you give up the froyo?! πŸ™‚

@ecomaha:  The Bee propolis look really interesting to me too especially with that study they did. I can’t remember which board it was but I do remember seeing that Royal Jelly wasn’t good for endo because I think it does something to increase your estrogen which is bad for us but I can’t remember exactly. I haven’t taken the time to research that more.

@hellorebecca:  Tell me about it. Gluten free can be a pain but is doable but DAIRY?! I made the switch with almond milk awhile ago, but my weakness is cheese and I haven’t been able to give that one up yet.. but I will do my best after my surgery.

@pretzel:  Yeah I think it is really beneficial for you too I am glad your sticking to it. Sooo not fun tho.

All right, ladies. I know I’ve been AWOL for awhile – boxes don’t pack themselves, unfortunately.

But I had to come and share. I bought a book the other day called Hannah’s Hope. Its all about infertility in the Bible, and how these great women of God dealt with it all. I’ve only read three chapters, but it is SO encouraging. Honestly, you should all run out and buy it NOW (or order it for your Kindle/ereader). I think you’d all love it!

That’s it for now! I’ll catch up with you ladies soon!

Just thought I’d post a little review/update on the Fertile CM, Fertile Aid for Women and FertiliTea since some of you have mentioned looking into it.   I had been taking the Fertile CM for about 1 1/2 months and just last week I added the Fertile Aid for Women and FertiliTea.  I don’t know if it’s the combo of all of them or just having the one in my system longer of if the 2 new ones work just that well but I’m defintiely noticing an increase in CM this month.  It’s been 12 full days since I added the tea and Fertile Aid for Women.  I still take the mucinex and drink green tea here and there.  And B6 (not sure that they helps with CM or not).  

Just thought I’d pass it along.
