Mel was diagnosed with Endometriosis when she was 21. Now 28, Mel and her husband are hoping to expand their family.
Mel’s Journey: I was diagnosed and have had two surgeries since. Now trying to conceive seems harder then ever and about to go through IVF. But I am also very lucky to have such a wonderful family and a supportive husband with a fur baby! =)
Words of Advice: Live a healthy life. I find that whenever I eat bad and don’t exercise pain gets a lot worse for me. But whenever I am leading a healthy lifestyle it helps a lot. Weirdly enough gluten seems to be a big problem with me, and my pain gets worse when ever I eat it so I just stay away from it. Also don’t be scared to go to the dr. and demand a specialist, it is not normal to have such bad period pain where you can’t walk!
The Last Word: Stay strong and healthy!
