I also have Endo along with PCOS. I recently had an endocrinologist suggest stopping my periods, using birth control, could actually help with the week or longer agony I go through each month. I am seeing a doctor this week, but I was wondering if you had heard of this method? Any thoughts? I have yet to have surgery for my endo and I am 30 years old. I'm worried that will be my next step :/

Sounds good! I am not huge in /r/endo, but when I need support it helps to go and read other peoples stories and support.

I have been part of /r/endo for about a year now! I just moved and left my awesome doctor behind, so I am still in the process of finding good ones. I also moved to an area that has a completely different way of dealing with medical issues. So I am learning. Thank you. :)

Thank you so much! I'm trying to do my own research before getting to the doctor's office and the options seem overwhelming. I will be sure to check this one out.

Do you mind me asking what BC she uses to keep from having a period? It is my understanding that some hormonal BC is harder on those of us with endo. I was told by a previous doctor to stay way from the implant, but the endocrinologist said she saw no reason why I shouldn't explore that option.
