I just got off of HBC after almost 6 years. It was not good for my mental health or my physical health :( I’ve been doing pretty okay. Before I took the pill continuously and skipped my periods. I had no bleeding for almost 5 years except after surgeries. So far, I’ve been pretty regular cycle-wise. Wondering if anyone else has done anything similar and what supplements or meds they’re taking to keep pain to a minimum. I had two laparoscopy and excisions, my last surgery was about two and a half years ago. They found a huge cyst behind my uterus and removed a lot of scar tissue from the previous surgery from my bowel and bladder. I’m starting to feel symptoms again though. I take miralax everyday because using the bathroom is painful otherwise, a multivitamin and inositol.

      Hi Angie!! I smoke pretty much all day but definitely open to just cbd products as well. I’m wondering if it makes a difference! What do you use?

      Thanks Mila! I’ve dug out my heating pads and stuffies. Im also gonna order some new gel pads for an old TENS unit I have. Unfortunately Naprosyn didn’t do much for me before but if I get to that point I’ll definitely try again

      I take tumeric pills for my endo pain it seams to help me. I have it bad but not bad enough for surgery thankfully. Hope this info is able to help someone.

      Hey pippy, thanks for sharing your journey with us... I hope you're doing ok. Have you thought about CBD for pain relief?

      I take Naprosyn occasionally which is a kind of NSAID's and I use heating pads a lot!

      Thanks. Though we stopped for now until my surgery. First time I’ve been off meds for my mental illness as well and I feel great mentally

      Yeah I had to go back on the pill for now until I have surgery done sometime in January. I would not survive until then. Especially working full time like is

      Good luck to you and your husband!! My fiancé and I are starting to think about trying so I got off for that reason as well

      That’s how I’m feeling right now. 😥 starting to worry I’m going to have to go back on but I’m literally just not willing to right now. First time I’ve been off of meds for mental health. I’m just taking miralax everyday and eating apple sauces for now I guess 😩

      I’ve been had an iud in for about 10 years had no symptoms. I got it taken out in June since my husband and I are trying for a kid. And my pain and symptoms came back worse than ever. Now I have pain daily. Can barely eat.
