Re: can endometriosis come back after giving birth
Contrary to popular belief endometreosis never goes away. It is caused by too much estrogen in the system. When you are pregnant the growth stops because the hormone is lacking. But after you give birth the hormone comes back and the growth can start again. Now some women do experience hormone changes after pregnancy but the likelyhood of that happening to a person with endo is very slim. I have had endo since I was 18 and am now 25. I have had 3 surgeries for it and was put on treatments that backfired on me and made it worse. So now I just live with it and have surgery as needed if I am in horrible pain (i.e. can walk, move, or barely breath). I hope this has been helpful.
