I’m looking for some advice to help a friend. I’m hoping someone on here has some experience with this.
My friend is a confirmed Catholic, but is not practicing. She spent many years on the Pill, but stopped using it due to adverse side effects (mostly emotional/psychological). She was trying to conceive for two years, using various methods. I urged her to see a NaproTechnology doc, but she stuck with her own fertility specialist. Her doctors finally diagnosed her with endometriosis. She had surgery and became pregnant a couple of months later. Now she has a baby. Her doctor has told her that if she does not want to become pregnant again right away (which she does not), she will have to go back on the Pill to keep the endometriosis at bay. She doesn’t want to do this, either.
I’m not very familiar with endometriosis, but I think there must be another way to control it other than birth control. I said as much to her and she said quite positively, “No, there isn’t.”
Any advice would be great or if you know of somewhere I can find such information, that would also be appreciated.
