Re: Has anything 'cured' your endometriosis? What should I do?
Well, my friend, I'm afraid only you can know what is best for you to do in terms of your health. I haven't heard of primolut but I did look it up online and it's a drug used to treat endo and other menstrual irregularities, it's a synthetic hormone. And of course has a host of side effects, but all meds do. I'm not familiar with its effectiveness at all so I would encourage you to look it up online and do some digging around and see what comes up there as well.
My doc mentioned the injections to me as well and so far my lapo from last spring is holding off the pain so I haven't started them as of yet. He also mentioned that not long ago women did stay on those injections for life and many of them did just fine - but there were risks involved in doing so which is why it's no longer indicated for long term use.
It's hard to know what the best course of action is, especially with a condition such as endo where everyone presents a little differently and the symptoms vary so much. I have been looking into a doc in Chicago that only deals with endo and has great results with doing lapos and getting all of the lesions, which not many docs are able to do. So perhaps it's worth looking into other docs who specialize in endo and have great results with certain treatments that other regular docs don't. There's a lot of promising info and results out there to be had.
