I received this message from one of our Readers, Jeni.
I was having severe pain in my right ovary. After months of seeing my Dr. we decided on a hysterectomy Feb 19, 2017 leaving in my left ovary. We are now in September and the pain resurfaced in April and month by month is getting severe again. I went to my Ob Dr, and she said it was from my endometriosis which I never knew I had till I visited her last Friday. She suggested I do the shot for 3 months to see if that helps. If my pain is gone they will take my other ovary and I will go into menopause. I am 43 and will probably hit menopause within the next 5 years anyway as my mom was in her 40’s. I would love some insight as to what you ladies would suggest. Some of your stories sound terrible and I feel for all of you.
If you would like to reach out to Jeni and help offer some insight, she’d love to hear from you. You may email her here.

I had a cluster of cysts on one of my ovaries from endometrial growth. After coming to my wits end with western doctors I put myself on a high protein diet, specifically kale, broccoli, basil, cucumber, lemon and parsley juices, pumpkin purée, Greek yogurt, cinnamon and cardamom, nuts, dark chocolate and popcorn. Sounds awful but guess what? It worked. After 6 months of cleansing I had the first pain free period I can remember ever. I’m also using Emerita black cohosh balancing cream nightly to support hormonal balance and doing an hour of cardio and meditation every day. Didn’t give up coffee! Haha. I never wanted to go on such a limited diet but I also did not want surgery yet. I’m 39. Eventually I will have my ovaries removed but for now knowing I can control this painful beast with farmacy is peace of mind. I wish we could just eat burgers and cake like men but such is our lot. I wish you the best Jeni.
