I've had endometriosis for years. Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that behaves like the cells lining the uterus (endometrium) grows in other areas of the body, causing pain, irregular bleeding, and possible infertility. The tissue growth (implant) typically occurs in the pelvic area, outside of the uterus, on the ovaries, bowel, rectum, bladder, and the delicate lining of the pelvis. However, the implants can occur in other areas of the body, too. Pain is the main symptom for women with endometriosis. This can include: •Painful periods •Pain in the lower abdomen or pelvic cramps that can be felt for a week or two before, after and during menstruation (the pain and cramps may be steady and dull or severe) •Pain during or following sexual intercourse •Pain with bowel movements •Pelvic or low back pain that may occur at any time during the menstrual cycle
Note: Often there are no symptoms. In fact, some women with severe cases of endometriosis have no pain at all, whereas some women with mild endometriosis have severe pain.
In the past, I managed my symptoms by using: •Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen (Advil) and naproxen (Aleve), acetaminophen (Tylenol), or prescription painkillers to relieve cramping and pain.
•I've had treatments to stop the menstrual cycle to create a state resembling pregnancy. This is called pseudopregnancy. It can help prevent the disease from getting worse. It's done using birth control pills containing estrogen and progesterone.
•This type of therapy relieves most endometriosis symptoms temporarily, but it does not prevent scarring from the disease. It also does not reverse any physical changes that have already occurred. And now years later, I am suffering from the repercussions of constant use of the NSAIDs and the prolonged use of birth control.
I believe that 90% of my endometriosis has been healed, however, I still suffer with increasing pain in my pelvic area, particularly on my left side.
Ancestral Medicinal's Female Herbal Complex powder has offered me great pain relief as well as added nutritional benefits from the 100% all natural herbs that are combined in the powder.
