    Endo after menopause

    My doctors always told me that once I entered menopause my endo would no longer be a problem. Well, as far as I can tell, they were wrong. I have been in menopause for 2 years and still have pelvic pain. My endo was/is severe. Now, I started bleeding and when my doctor tried to do an endometrial biopsy, she was unable to do it because of all the adhesions on my cervix. Next step is an ultrasound and possible D & C. Does anyone have expereienced with endo after menopause?

    I just want you to know that you aren't alone. I'm almost 60, and I've had problems for several years now. The endo wasn't a horrible problem before menopause or for at least ten years after, but it is posing problems for me now.
    I am seeing an alternative physician, however. I can't help you with conventional therapy or treatment. I am following a very strict diet. I have very little pain, actually--
    I don't want to talk about my symptoms on here, too public--LOL!
    I am extremely sensitive to medications and chemicals of any kind, so I have to be very careful; I actually have MCS, and my practitioner believes that my body sees some chemicals as estrogens--
    which contributes to my problem, so I avoid chemicals.
    It's a rather difficult way to live, isn't it? And I am commenting, because I want you to know that you are NOT alone. It is hard to talk to friends/family/associates about this, because it's quite rare--
    But, please know that you aren't alone. I can see there have been no other responses--
    I am calling myself endograndma--LOL!
    God bless you--
    I wish I could offer more help, but I just live from day to day myself; I have my very good days and then some not so good--
