Truth, Theory, or Tall Tale?

Getting pregnant and having a child will cure your Endometriosis growth and pain.

TallTale

Many women are told that if they wish to end their pain and suffering, to get pregnant and have a baby.  This is sort of a Catch 22 : a lot of women with Endometriosis experience infertility problems, yet are told getting pregnant will alleviate their pain and symptoms.

While many women experience relief during their pregnancies, the pain and symptoms of Endometriosis may return after the delivery.  This may be due, in part, to the fact that the women are no longer menstruating.  Their cramps have subsided.  Their hormones have altered.  But it’s temporary.  Many women report a full return of their pain and symptoms once their child is born.  Some women, however, claim to be pain-free after childbirth.

  1. My gyn actually used the word “cure” when suggesting both pregnancy and hysterectomy. I was shocked because I had already done enough research on my own to know there is no true cure for this. Information like this is so important to patients.

    1. I flat out asked my Doc how he felt about hystos as a “cure,” just to see what he’d say…and he wonderfully said they were not a cure, but that a hysto would help alleviate my uterine cramps. I enjoy his honesty.

      1. I would appreciate that honesty too! I’m still considering a hysto but it’ll have to wait until the rest of my health is under control. Maybe my gyn knew it would help but wanted to make it sound more exciting than scary so she used the “c” word instead. 🙂
