Endometriosis is a painful condition that causes tissues similar to the uterine lining to grow outside of the uterus, then endometriosis can cause extreme pain during menstrual cycles as well as infertility! I have been suffering from endometriosis for over fifteen years although I did not get a formal diagnosis until a few years ago.
It took myself and others being hospitalized twice for extreme pain as well as a 3 hour surgery to finally get maintainedâ€¦ After our diagnosis, our nurse as well as I talked about pain treatments for this exhausting condition.
I have been using prescription pain killers during our period for years to be able to function, then my nurse commanded medical marijuana as a potential treatment for our debilitating pain, but the only issue with this, is that endometriosis causes infertility. I told our nurse that I wanted to get pregnant, so she suggested against medical marijuana as a treatment while I was trying to conceive, but now that I have a baby, I am pumping which is keeping endometriosis symptoms at bay, however when I stop pumping as well as the extreme pain comes back, I am willing to try medical marijuana for our pain. I do not like to smoke, so I guess I would rather use cannabis candy, cannabis gummies, cannabis drinks, or a cannabis brownie. Medical marijuana is not safe for breast milk so I will not use it at this time, but when our baby no longer needs breast milk I will try it, but luckily our nurse told myself and others all of the steps I need to take when the time comes as well as I need to obtain a prescription for medical marijuana. I hope that other women suffering from endometriosis are aware that medical marijuana can be an alternative treatment .
