      I didn't take birth control pills and got pregnant naturally. I usually take Advil for the pain

      For years I have been taking pills as part of the treatment for endometriosis. When I wanted to get pregnant, I stopped the treatment, and unfortunately, I could not get pregnant easily. I finally underwent laparoscopic surgery about three years ago, and after that, I quickly got into a natural pregnancy. Since then, I have been back to taking pills as a contraceptive, but the pain has really improved!

      Hi, I also take birth control as a treatment for endometriosis. When I tried to conceive my gyno suggested to stop taking my pills and to see if I can handle only with painkillers. My endo wasn’t so painful so I managed to stay without any drugs when I conceived.

      Hey, I got pregnant with letrozole because of my PCOS, but my doctor told me that if I wouldn’t get pregnant for a while, surgery or IVF may help, I guess it all depends on the severity and if you have endo symptoms or not
