How Can I Manage the Pain from Endometriosis?

Read Transcript

What I tell patients who have Endometriosis who are not to the point of meeting surgery but they are having pain, I usually like them on a birth control pill. Because I think birth control pill decreases the fluctuations of hormones, they'll decrease the problems I'll have on a daily basis of Endometriosis.

Also a good diet, a diet low in progesterone type foods like soy type foods also helps with Endometriosis. And lastly in people who are obese can sometimes have more pain within Endometriosis, and some people believe it's due to peripheral convulsion in the fatty tissue of some hormones to estrogen like hormones but no ones knows for sure but it has been proven people who are of above average body weight have worsening symptoms with Endometriosis.
