I just got diagnosed with endometriosis and didn’t really get any advice from my doctor. What is something I can do to help the condition? I’m kind of in the dark right now.

    I just got diagnosed too, but technically it’s an unofficial diagnosis until they do a laparoscopic diagnostic surgery. My OBGYN referred me to an OBGYN surgeon to meet with and discuss next steps, as surgery is really the only way to diagnose and treat endo. In the meantime I’ve been using lots of Advil, medical cannabis, etc. for the pain.

    My biggest tip would be to look into Endometriosis specialists that specialize in excision surgery!!! SO many doctors/OBGYN’s try to treat endo- but are unqualified. This is something I wish I knew before getting a hack job surgery from an OBGYN.

    If you’re looking for a community of endo warriors to relate with, you can follow my Instagram/tiktok @endometriosisem 💕 The endo community has taught me everything there is to know!!

    Continue to do research and don’t always go with your doctors opinion especially when it comes to your medicine .

    Try to read some stories about other women with the condition, like in this app. For me it helped me to understand better what are the symptoms that are caused by the disease and get familiar with different treatment approach. Good luck!
