severe endometriosis and infertility

Hi, i am 31 year old and suffer from severe endometriosis (stage 4, worst case)

I am writing this post to seek help from the learned and experienced members to treat endometriosis.

My goal and aim is to have baby and i am prepared to do anything......... this is a desperate plea.

My history

Have always had heavy and painful periods ever since i can remember, getting worse with age, until i was rushed to emergency in August 2007 because i fainted with unbearable pain! At this stage i was diagnosed with endometriosis and cysts in ovaries and underwent my first laproscopy.

3 months later i underwent 2nd laproscopy and was put on Nafarelin spray (synarel) to give me artificial menopause.

2 months later i underwent 3rd laproscopy.

i took synarel for a total of 9 months and although the pain was less when i got my first period after all the surgeries and the spray but it soon came back with vengeance!

i have been trying hard ever since then to fall pregnant, even did the IVF last year(and underwent 4th laprscopy because they wanted to clear out the ovaies before IVF) but nothing so far has worked.

In my last scan done about a month ago both of my ovaries were filled up and swollen like a tennis balls with chocolate cysts and endometrium tissue.

I have pretty much given up the hopes, but have heard some women in similar condition having success with homeopathy, so i request you please to help me out here.

Thanks Anuj.

can i take both of them at the same time i.e. 5 of Calc Phos 6 and 5 of Mag Phos 6 together in hotwater?

Aso will they help me conceive also?

The other things i can think of is that i am stubborn and aggressive.

also in the last few years i have noticed premature greying and thinning of hair and have recently noticed dandruff as well.

i do believe i am little bit selfish as well.
 
endo_help 6 years ago
dont have calc in hot water.you can have it before or after mp.

million dollar question.aim is to cure your personality by finding out the characteristic symptom of the patient in the medicine ,so lets wait and watch.

these medicines dont treat an ailment so if you are true with your symptoms the best possible remedy can be selected suited to your personality.
