But then another year of misery went by and the "void" wasn't even a consideration anymore. I had no life. I was a slave to a constantly hemorrhaging useless body part. Oh well, i better live it up before i have to get a bladder sling! jesus.
    Bladder issues are also eliminated with iodine supplements.
    Iodine supplements are a MIRACLE product especially for women, but also cures prostate problems in men. Supplements cured my prostate in only 2 months !

    I just sent an email to the Dr. to see what the first step would be. I'm done having kids. I am feeling so done with my reproductive organs... I almost lean towards a hysterectomy....but that seems drastic for a 36.5 year old.
    DON'T DO A HYSTERECTOMY ! ! !
    Iodine supplements will cure ALL of your female issues. See the above links that I posted. You should also join the Yahoo Iodine Group.
    iodine : Iodine
    The vast majority of Americans are severely deficient in iodine, causing a Pandoras Box of disease, ESPECIALLY in women. Iodine is REQUIRED in every cell in our body, and most or required iodine has been swept away by the following toxins:

    * Toxins in our food, water & environment force iodine out of our cells to make us deficient
    - - - Chemical halogens (similar to iodine ) = fluoride, bromine, bromides, and chlorine.
    - - - Pseudo-iodides such as perchlorate, nitrate and thiocyanate cyanate, & pertechnate.
    - - - Taking iodine supplements forces these toxins into the bloodstream (detox)
    - - - Too many toxins in the blood causes Detox Symptoms (temporary illness)
    - - - Special supplements are required to help the liver & kidneys detox

    Follow procedures in the links I have provided above. Also tell all of your friends & family,

    Eliminating wheat eliminated mine and my sister's. We had incredibly painful (ER-worthy, such that when I was in labor with my son, I said, "Is this it? My periods are worse!") periods. She had kidney problems, and during some endoscopy work for that, they found uterine tissue in her intestines and some other places. Really nasty fibroids run in my family. So bad that my mom, who was still menstruating at 59 (can't outrun them sometimes, ladies...ugh), had a hysterectomy to get rid of the pain. Doctor did an ultrasound and didn't see very bad growths on the scan, but when he took her uterus out was shocked that they were everywhere (I guess sometimes that happens).

    Mom refuses to eat healthy, sadly. My sister, on the other hand, has gone gluten free over the years. I've been religiously gluten free for 3 years and now I'm totally grain free, and my periods are barely a blip on the radar anymore. Major change from a few years ago. So much better now!
    Am I still allowed to lick rocks on this diet?

    I was a vegetarian once. You should have seen my awful cholesterol back then...

And then a further surgery is required to support the bladder.
    Also, ladies (and men) please tell me you're all doing kegel exercises. That fixes a LOT of problems. Low back pain and prolapsed organs can all totally be prevented by kegels. I know this because I had to do physical therapy for low back issues.

    Grizz - I have a discount with Private MD Labs so I was thinking of an iodine test. Should I go with 24 hour urine, random urine or a blood test?

    Thanks.

    This mostly happens to women with complete hysterectomies: cervix, ovaries and uterus removed. With partial hysterectomy, prolapse is rare.

    Does anybody here have endometriosis (or know someone who has healed it)? I don't even know what type of healthcare practitioner to see to fix this up via natural means.

    Is this something that can be healed via nutrition and exercise? Would fasting benefit?

    What happens if I just let it be, as is? (It's early stage at this point.) I'm not having symptoms whatsoever. Am I in store for big, big problems further on down the line?

    I will have to, as Stabby says, read until my eyes bleed. But I'd also like some wisdom from the tribe.
    My wife has it...she needs to get it removed with surgery.

    How has your natural treatment route been going?

    I was diagnosed via laparoscopy 2 years ago, when I was 19. I'm actually waiting for another laparoscopy. My original surgeon (gyno) wanted to put me on BC or Lupron. I tried BC and I bled for a month straight (kinda defeated the purpose). I refused Lupron due to the potential side effects (short term memory loss and bone density loss didnt seem like an even trade). I tried to go the natural route using acupuncture, which did help a lot, but it got pretty expensive after a while. After that, I switched gyno's. The one I have now is a godsend.

    Im one of the unlucky ones who is in extreme pain. I also seem to have some kind of imbalance where my body becomes immune to pain killers abnormally fast. I have been put on every kind of pain killer all of my docs can think of. The last resort they have given me is Cesamet (med marijuana, which I was very annoyed about). In the meantime, I was having some major bowel and bladder issues, and my pain was so bad that I could barely stand or sit for more than 30 minutes at a time. He suggested I follow the endo diet at endo-resolved. Since it was so extreme, I decided to start going gluten free. Within a few weeks, my pains had gone down. They still were brutal, but not to the same degree. Searching for gluten free websites, I stumbled onto MDA. I read it for months, realizing how much sense it made.

    Ironically, I saw my doc again about 6 weeks ago. He suggested that most chronic pain disorders like endo are diet related. He told me I should try paleo since it has helped a lot of his other patients. I figured that now would be the perfect time to go primal. I've done it for 6 weeks now, and although I've had a few binges (at other peoples houses when I didn't have many food options), I have gone from trying to use pain meds daily, to not using any at all. I've found that exercising definitely helps too. Yoga and swimming are great for low impact things. A hot bath, or a hot water bottle are my newest best friends too for pain.
