I am 32 years old and have suffered with en-dometriosis since the age of 15.  Was diagnosis with stage IV endo a few years ago, which is too severe to have recommended surgery without potential big risks.  Was in too much agony to try for a baby at that stage.  However I seen a nutrionalist a couple years ago and after making a few changes my pain is far more manageable, and I have considerably reduced the pain killers I have to take.  The main difference being that I cut wheat completely out of my diet.  Due to the reduced pain I am now able to attempt IVF, my endo has created a few complications, but at least I have hope.
I just thought I share this info in case it might help anyone.
Goodluck to everyone who is ttc.

Hi Kerry

Thanks for the info.  It's sounds really encouraging.  I've not tried changing my diet as I had a long period of 7 yrs without any pain, but that changed after 1st ivf neg.

Glad to read that you can now start tx.  Good luck  ^reiki^

Hiya Kerry

Thanks for sharing with us

Is it the Dian Mills diet that u r following??

I do partly follow the wheat free diet, but i am on lactose and dairy free diet, altho some of the things in the range of foods that i eat is wheat free.

I have found that it has helped my endo a little, altho at present i am waiting for af and am sure u know how it goes :(

I seem to find pain is a lot worse at night so i am up all night and sleep most of the day atm.

Today is not my best day

Its good to know that the diet has helped you so that u can try ivf thats such good news

I am to be put on a course of zoladex to help me come off the pain killers and then i will be able to have the ivf that i need.

I am sorry that ur endo has caused us such problems

If u ever fancy a chat about anything endo pain if anything at all feel free to email me or im me

Best of luck with ur ivf tx

Hi Emily

Sorry to hear that you are having such a rough time.

Yes I did go and see Dian Mills a few times where she put me on very high doses of different vitamins and recommended changes to my diet, where wheat appeared to be make a different.  For years I had constant pain every day where my cysts are.  When I cut wheat out of my diet this pain disappeared but only to reappear when I ate wheat again.  After about 18 months of this diet I now find I can eat a little bit of wheat without any consequences, although I am too wary to go back to my old ways.  The only thing I wish I did it years earlier, hence I would recommended to try and cut it completely out for a period of time to see if it makes any difference.

Good luck in coming off the pain killers.

Take Care

Kerry
