Endometriosis is a painful condition that causes tissues similar to the uterine lining to grow outside of the uterus, however endometriosis can cause harsh pain during menstrual cycles plus infertilityâ€¦ 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 harsh pain plus a several hour surgery to finally get worked on! After our diagnosis, our doctor plus I talked about pain treatments for this awful condition. I have been using prescription pain killers during our stage for years to be able to function, however my doctor recommended medical marijuana as a potential treatment for our debilitating pain, then the only issue with this, is that endometriosis causes infertility. I told our doctor that I wanted to get pregnant, so he advocated against medical marijuana as a treatment while I was trying to conceiveâ€¦ Now that I have a baby, I am pumping which is keeping endometriosis symptoms at bay, when I stop pumping plus the harsh pain comes back, I am willing to try medical marijuana for our pain. I do not like to smoke, so I suppose 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; Luckily our doctor told myself and others all of the steps I need to take when the time comes plus I need to obtain a prescription for medical marijuana. I hope that other ladies suffering from endometriosis are aware that medical marijuana can be an alternative treatment .
