Possible Solution to Endometriosis? Oxidative Stress – Molecular hydrogen – Antioxidants – Endometriosis This article is not like my previous blogs. This one is more research orientated and somehow I believe in this one strongly. First, I am not a medical doctor and I am not providing any medical advice. This is simply my views as a sufferer of endometriosis and my quest to bring information to people.  This also is a request to the medical authorities and healthcare department to look into it more thoroughly and find a systematic, regular basis (monthly/ weekly) treatment for endometriosis patients – Antioxidants based or molecular hydrogen based therapy

Break-up with Caffeine!

  • By: Priyanka Shinde

When I was diagnosed with Endometriosis in early 2020, doctors asked me to experiment with my diet. One of the first steps were going dairy free and caffeine free. My instant reaction - "I can't stop drinking the coffee! I stop drinking coffee, I stop doing the standing, and the walking, and the words-putting-into-sentences doing." Literally my case 2 years back! Everything was about coffee. My morning – start of office – post lunch – evening break – after work; My friends argued about me having caffeine in my veins more than blood. The aroma of coffee itself was intoxicating for me. Being thrown into the uncharted territory of learning to live

You could fly to the moon 456 times before getting an Endometriosis Diagnosis, study finds. - Alice Broster of Forbes recently published an article that gives a peek into the life of women suffering from Endometriosis. In the time it takes for women to obtain an accurate diagnosis, she could -  fly to the moon 456 times, run 14,231 marathons, climb mount Everest 45 times! - Ughhh. This one got me.  I have said this before - #1in10 women! Currently, 200 million+ women are affected by this disease around the world.

I am no Blogger. I am just here to share and hope to help more girls like me. A 30-year-old middle class girl from India. An Architect by profession. A basic girl who just wants to live her dreams. I am no writer. But ever since Endometriosis entered my ordinary life and made it extra-ordinary, I have a lot say. If I choose to share, I know that my vulnerability may help others finally receive their own diagnosis by learning about familiar symptoms. For those who have already been diagnosed, seeing me open up about my journey may help them feel less alone. I was lost. I was clueless. And I thought I was alone. The disease that affects 1 in 10 women, had me on my knees, left to feel

Understanding Surgical Trauma

  • By: Samantha Denäe

Stress. It is a major problem for many people, a lot of times killing them if not managed properly, but when an issue arises and surgery (minor or major) is the answer, their stress goes to a totally new place.  Surgical Trauma, defined as, “any injury produced by or related to major surgery”, is more common than one may tend to think. Recognized by surgeon Francis Moore, trauma begins before a patient even enters the operating room, before being put under general anesthesia, and before the first incision. It begins when a patient becomes aware of what is in store for them. The minute the word “surgery” is mentioned as course of treatment, the anxiety bell

Laparoscopic procedure is a minimally invasive procedure commonly used to diagnose Endometriosis as well as to remove mild to severe endometriosis tissue. With this particular procedure, a small abdominal incision is created to insert a laparoscope, a lighted viewing instrument. “Lap surgery” as it is typically referred to, is a difficult procedure to endure and it’s important to be well prepared prior to. Here are ten tips to prepare for a lap procedure: Recovery time is typically 6-8 weeks, not 4: In most cases, surgeons will tell you recovery time after surgery is 4 weeks – it is not. Your body needs more time to recover. Although the procedure is

Endometriosis: But your tests are all negative?

  • By: NANCY PETERSON of NOOK NEWS

So often we get questions in our Facebook group about diagnostic studies for endometriosis. Patients are told repeatedly, your MRI/CT Scan/US/colonoscopy showed nothing, so you are disease free. Often they are told by family, friends, and doctors alike to stop obsessing about their symptoms, because they do not have endometriosis. This makes the path to diagnosis long and difficult for the patient. Since classic endometriosis symptoms are so pervasive and painful, these women persist in seeking answers. Still, on average, it takes 9 years to get a diagnosis. While scans can RULE IN endometriosis (particularly deep infiltrating endometriosis and endometriomas), they CANNOT

How women's 'health care gaslighting' went mainstream

  • By: Ashley Fetters is a writer based in New Jersey, and a former staff writer at The Atlantic.

Appeared in the The Atlantic, written by Ashely Fetters (10/08/2018) It started early in the year. In January, a widely cited Vogue cover story on the tennis great Serena Williams, who gave birth to a daughter in September of 2017, told the harrowing tale of how Williams had to urgently insist to the hospital staff in her recovery room that what she was experiencing after her C-section was a pulmonary embolism in order to get the treatment she needed to stay alive. “The nurse thought her pain medicine might be making her confused,” the story reads. A month later, Vogue published an essay by the Girls creator Lena Dunham on her
