Endometriosis is a painful condition that causes tissues similar to the uterine lining to grow outside of the uterus, endometriosis can cause extreme pain during menstrual cycles in addition to infertility, then i have been suffering from endometriosis for over fifteen years but I did not get a formal diagnosis until a few years ago.
It took myself and others being hospitalized twice for extreme pain in addition to a more than two hour surgery to finally get diagnosed.
After my diagnosis, my doctor in addition to I talked about pain treatments for this bad condition. I have been using prescription pain killers during my stage for years to be able to function! My doctor suggested medical marijuana as a potential treatment for my debilitating pain! The only issue with this, is that endometriosis causes infertility. I told my doctor that I wanted to get pregnant, so she suggested against medical marijuana as a treatment while I was trying to conceive; Now that I have a baby, I am pumping which is keeping endometriosis symptoms at bay, and when I stop pumping in addition to the extreme pain comes back, I am willing to try medical marijuana for my pain. I do not love 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 my baby no longer needs breast milk I will try it, and luckily my doctor told myself and others all of the steps I need to take when the time comes in addition to I need to obtain a prescription for medical marijuana. I hope that other girls suffering from endometriosis are aware that medical marijuana can be an alternative treatment .
