Endo Diet Testimonial:
I had twins a year ago February after doing 7 rounds of infertility (IUI with Gonal F). Within 2 weeks after delivery my endo pain was back, and was getting worse every week. I had always heard about people going on the Endo Diet (no gluten, no dairy, no sugar, no alcohol, limit red meat) but I was extremely skeptical. Finally in May of 2013 I decided to give it a try. I had three kids (all through fertility) and needed to be able to function on a daily basis for them. So starting June 1st I went on the endo diet. I decided to give myself 3 months to try it and then evaluate whether or not to continue. I was still on the mini pill from after my sons delivery and ended that at the end of July. I had a relatively pain-free summer the longer I was on the diet. I decided at the end of August to re-introduct one thing at a time to see if the great health I was feeling for a coinincidence or if it was the diet. I tried dairy first and within 24 hours my pain was back. i decided the annoyance I had over trying to find things to eat was worth the effort to not have pain. I went off birth control in August and 2 weeks ago we found out we are pregnant! After so many rounds of fertility for my three sons, changing my diet and lifestyle made the most difference. I have had four laps, done Lupron twice and nothing has given me the relief that diet did. Hoping that someone else can benefit from this too!
